Stopped at Dairy Queen because I had a coupon for buy one, get one free. I had the hot chocolate chip cookie with chocolate ice cream and sauce. Other had the lava cake with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce. Delicious!

This is located next to 2 schools so it gets lots of customers after class during spring. I get what I order and its mostly correct. Has parking and can take people from inside and outside.

Nicely remodeled DQ that we have been going to for many years. Staff is normally friendly and fast. The new umbrellas and tables are very nice.

As of April 2015, the exterior was remodeled for eating outside. It's along a highway, so it's not going to be a relaxing kind of thing, but it's a Dairy Queen and how can you go wrong? Primarily student help but the staff is well...More
