This is a very well managed old fashioned Dairy Queen. There is a pleasant patio where you can enjoy your yummy deserts. Staff is super friendly and efficient.

Customer service if good, you get your orders quick. They usually have a long drive thru line. its seating area is very small.

I have been to this dairy queen a few times and the has always been very slow. The ice cream tastes like any other dairy queen ice cream, which is decent.

This place has a drive-through no less. Prices are very high. We ordered a large shake and it was nearly four dollars and there wasn't much in it but milk. Chocolate taste was non-existent.

I just always know that when I go to Dairy Queen I will never be suprised at low quality. All their ice creams are so good. Once in awhile I see that they will have what is called a pizza puff. Try it if you...More
