We had coupons from Dairy Queen mailed to us in Sanibel so we decided to go there for a quick bite. Well we were told they don't accept coupons since they are independently owned. We went ahead and ordered but their prices are not fast...More

Stopped to get a milk shake and got the Royal Oreo Blizzard. It will not disappoint if you are a Chocoholic... staff friendly and clean bathrooms.

We have been going to Sanibel for years and part of our tradition is to stop by Dairy Queen for a cone. It is just a nice view while sitting outside enjoying your ice cream.

My wife and I stopped by and purchased 2 blizzards, had them bagged to go. The staff were very helpful. Trying to turn left out of the parking lot can be a challenge though.

It was pretty humid so we decided an ice cream or cold drink would help. One strawberry shake and one ice cream and waffle cone did the job. Prices are a little higher than average dairy queen but it's an island so prices tend to...More
