This DQ is located right on Hwy 12 and it's typical old school style. Strictly ice cream, shakes etc, the day we were there. They were short staffed with just a manager and an obvious trainee. In spite of that we got served fast.

Dairy Queen is Dairy Queen. We got the same good product at this one as at all others. If you're in this area, the other local ice cream places have huge lines and close early. We did the drive thru at this one several times....Service was great. Food was greatMore

Our ice cream was so over soft and it wasn't even hot out. Everything given to us was very messy. I understand under staffed but there were a few days that we went and they were just closed with no note.

This DQ location only serves hot dogs and ice cream. The hot dogs were decent and this is the only fast food that exist in Rodanthe.

I guess if you are just dying for something cold, this will do. However, every time I visit, I go away disappointed. This last time I ordered the Reese’s peanut butter lovers blizzard. I ordered AFTER asking if it had peanut butter added to make...it that color in the picture. I was told it had peanut butter topping along with the Reese’s cups. What I received was a plain vanilla blizzard with peanut butter cups mixed in. Peanut butter lovers? Hardly. One day I will learn and drive somewhere if necessary to get ice cream.More

My daughter was asking about stopping by "DQ" all day long! And as soon as we finished eating dinner, she made sure to remind us.... It was about 9 last night, & we were greeted with a smile! I got a mini "cookie dough" blizzard,...and my daughter got a small "choice brownie" blizzard. That was the very first time that I've ever had a blizzard, and it was soooo good! I liked the fact that he turned the cup upside down before he gave it to us, to show how thick it is. Good to know, so she won't make a big mess in the back seat of the car - and she didn't!More

Not friendly service and chocolate dipped badly covered the small amount of ice cream served. Would drive further for better quality.

Great Dairy Queen near Cape Hatteras RV resort and KOA. Friendly staff, attention to details and very quick service compared to others DQs where it takes forever to get a Blizzard. Well done.

Most of the usual Ice cream products and hots dogs. That's it. Open 12p to 10p. Tripadvisor wants me to use at least 100 characters to describe this DQ and now I've done it. :)

Love the blizzard but this dairy queen does not participate in the buy 1 get 1 for 99 cents promotion being advertized... Blizzards are great but full of calories and expensive... They were nice enough on our visits...

Holy cow add on the pounds!! Ice cream blizzards were so good. We've eaten there two days in a row for a yummy treat after spending time in the sun and exploring the area. Staff was super nice and friendly to the kids

We drove thru here and got ice cream. As far as DQs go, this was fine. Service was fast and friendly. If you want soft serve ice cream, this is fine.
