It was similar to most Dairy Queens, but they did have a counter with ten flavors of hard ice cream. I got a malt which was good.

Great food, my favorite are the pulled pork "egg rolls " and the smoked potato salad! Also the dole whip, good to the last bite! Cool decor with music piping out from the 50/60's

Stopped for some ice cream. The ice cream itself was super yummy and the price was okay but however the girl who waited on me was very unfriendly:( I'll most likely be back but I was not happy with my service.
