DQ is an institution. Their TEXMEX sets them apart besides the unbeatable SoftServe! If you want a low calory meal .. Their salads are actually great and the 50 Kcal Fudge Bar beats everything!

This is the only Dairy Queen on the island and it is always busy, but the staff has a great attitude and they work very hard to get the food out quickly and correctly. They have a very positive attitude.

Your average Dairy Queen. Food and service were great. They are a short walk from the beach but you do have to cross Padre Blvd. They do not require to wear a shirt which is a plus.
