Staff is always friendly, the bathrooms are amazingly clean. The food is good and I appreciate that their hamburgers are 100 percent beef, no fillers. Also have gluten free buns available.

This is one of the cleanest DQs I've been in. Cleaner than the Cache Creek location and definitely better than any in Victoria. Friendly helpful staff too. It's DQ, so I'm hard pressed to give it a 5. No fault of this location (they prepared everything well), it's just fast food.

While passing through Williams Lake on the way home, we decided it was time for a "Cool Treat". Albeit, it was a bit of a chore to access due to construction on service road, the visit and treats were well worth it. What seemed like no time at all to serve the couple of cars ahead of us, we were... More

Located just off Hwy 97 they have ample parking available. The interior and grounds are spotlessly clean and the staff very pleasant. We ordered 2 blizzards and 2 small cones for the dogs.The staff member immediately provided 2 cones, advising they will make the blizzards while we give the dogs their cones. On checking the bill we noted the dog... More

They make a good Blizzard. I will not eat anything but their ice creams because I have had a bad experience with DQ salads in the past.

Always enjoy going to DQ in Williams Lake, but this visit was something new, to us. They now serve YOU! Take your order at the counter, same as always, but give you a number to put on a holder at your table, and when it's ready, they bring it to your table for you. Very neat idea. Hope our DQ... More

I very much like the vegetarian burger at DQ! The poutine is made with a vegetarian gravy, the associate let me have a look at the bag with the ingredients list. Very friendly staff, always clean and neat tables and seats. WIFI for free available.

The DQ Grill & Chill / Orange Julius in Williams Lake is a family tradition. With new ownership and a complete face-lift in 2008 we offer friendly table side service in a clean and comfortable setting. With a broad menu unique to quick service restaurants, we have something for everyone. Hot soups, hot baked sandwiches, fresh salads, or delicious baked snack wraps alongside the traditional DQ favourites that everyone enjoys, such as our classic Ultimate Burger, a juicy Mushroom Swiss Grill Burger, or the ever fiery Flamethrower Grill Burger.Just want a snack or an alternative to that soda pop? Try one of our Premium Fruit Smoothies or traditional Orange Julius blended drinks.And don't forget dessert! The soft serve that we all crave is the perfect end to any meal or a great way to cool down on a hot summer's day.
