Who doesn't love a Dairy Queen? I have benn going to this one my whole life and can honestly say I would not go back. The kids that work there never seem to get any order right. My most disturbing experience was when I went in to have a lunch. As i sat there waiting forever for my food I... More

We love their chicken basket w/ gravy. Service is good but could be better. We also love their Blizzards, but make sure you ask them to turn it over to see if it's thick enough. Sometimes they will try to put a lid on it before they give it to you. If they turn it over with the lid off... More

This place has really turned around from years back. The Inside is almost entirely redone from seating to front counter to new orange julius. It is really nice to see someone buy this store and take the time and spend the money to turn it around! Food was great, served hot and fresh. Ice cream was excellent... no surprise. Great... More

This Dairy Queen, which is open year round is the best in the area. I have never been here and had a bad meal or a bad ice cream treat. The Blizzards are the best, and yes I like them even in the winter when it's snowing.

What can you say, it is ice cream and tasty. The staff is a little slow but the ice cream reminds you why you stood in line.

There is something so refreshing about soft-serve ice cream on a hot, summer day. The staff work quickly, so even if the line is long (maybe out the door), you won't be waiting long. The serving sizes are consistent, you won't walk away thinking that your medium looks more like a small.

The Dairy Queen in Zion offers 50% off everything every Wednesday from 10am - 3pm. We took our grandson there for lunch and he bought. :) Easy parking, fast and friendly service. Plenty of seating even with a few dirty tables. The food was served hot and was tasty. We bought 3 chili dogs, a double mushroom burger, 2 orders... More

Wednesdays are half price on everything here in Zion at the Dairy Queen. We went for Dilly Bars and eneded up having lunch, too. Husband had a Chicago Dog with the works and I had the chili cheese dog combo. Both were really good. I expected the french fries to be the skinny little ones and to my delight, they... More
