It's Dairy Queen and you get pretty much what you expect, but you're at the beach so you visit at least once a day.

We go to this Dairy Queen every year we vacation in Avon. They are always busy...line out the door most times. The employees there are the model of efficiency. They are always polite and never seem overwhelmed. We have witnessed other guests get irritated and rude and the employees always handle themselves professionally . I'm impressed year after year!

Not bad, but not particularly good. It is reasonably priced and consistent quality. The standard flavors and items that you would find at a Dairy Queen any where in the country

Walked over for some cooling dessert and was not disappointed. We arrived later in the evening and there were no lines. The ice cream was cool and refreshing .

Dairy Queen is Dairy Queen, but the speed and efficiency that the "kids" displayed was really amazing. Some of the pictures show long lines. I can guarantee you that all of those folks were served and out the door in a matter of minutes. Great treat for the kids at a reasonable price.

I used to be able to get a cherry-chocolate Blizzard at DQ. This one only had maraschino cherries, which are cherries that are robbed of any cherry flavor or identity! I feel like, when you go for soft serve, barely dairy "ice cream," you need some extra reason to make it worth it. Genuine cherries with chunks of chocolate in... More

We always take the kids to Dairy Queen when visiting the Outer Banks, even though we shy away from chains as preferring more locally owned businesses. Our service this year was so much better than last year and we ended up visiting 3 out of 7 nights on the island. Friendly staff and restaurant was clean. Huge improvement from last... More

Visited twice. Was very busy but we got served in a timely fashion since it is the summer season. Had a bit of a wait but that is to be expected.

The ice cream was good, not a lot of freezer variety, but the staff was friendly and made a nice blizzard and sundae

I ordered the pecan parfait only to be told they didn't have any pecans because they forgot to order them. After chosing the choc chip bake item and paying for it, I was told they forgot to turn on the oven and it would be a couple minutes. 15 minutes later, I finally got my dessert. The only food they...
