This DQ is like most other fast food places. There isn't any reason that makes you want to come here but there weren't any major issues that would make me avoid it in the future. The food was average, slightly warm but not hot. My wife and I ordered a cheeseburger and fries and sat while we waited for it... More

Stopped here on our way through town. The service was incredibly fast and the food was made right when we ordered it. The manager waited to make our desserts until we were finished with our meal and then brought them out afterwords so they did not melt. Seems to be a great attraction in this town as it got very...

Lots of locals due to it being Sunday. My chicken strips were hot, gravy good, & fries top. Staff was friendly, sweet tea was good. Condiments were near soda fountain, everything centered to that. Not a lot to choose from in this town & if you don't stop it is a long ways to anyplace else. Bathroom clean, over all... More

Stopped for a quick bite traveling to Texas. Nothing really special. Order was correct and prompt. Had to hunt for napkins, salt, pepper, etc. Condiments were not on table or anywhere we could find. Had to go back to counter....wait in line to request condiments. Then the young man taking the orders was not very friendly about it. However, the... More

They had more customers than they had employees to serve them. One of the employees told my wife that they were shorthanded because they were slow after school had started. My chicken club sandwich was good but not prepared as requested. They are on the lower than average scale for Dairy Queens based on our experience. Hopefully it was just... More

Staff was attentive and quick with our order. The environment was clean, only a few things that could have been wiped betyer, but we were in late and they had just started cleanup for closing.

A little disappointed for Dairy Queen, The manager was a little short and I guess because they were so busy. The bathrooms were the dirtiest I've ever seen in a Dairy Queen. The chicken strip meals were over cooked and minus the toast.

This restaurant isn't very clean, the personnel are slow and sometimes rude. The food is okay, but you may have to wait on someone to take your order, even if there is nobody else ordering in front of you.

We are from Texas so had no idea that some Dairy Queens do not serve DQ Dudes. However, the chicken sandwich and the fish sandwich were fresh and well prepared. After they handed me my sandwiches, I asked them to cut them in half and they did so happily. The staff were solicitous and nice. We will definitely return if... More
