This restaurant is always very clean, with consistent food and service. Impossible to beat their $6 value meals which include a meal, drink and sundae!!

Even though this was a small town DQ, I was able to ask for and receive a dessert that was no longer on the menu. Peanut Buster Parfaits have been on the menu for a number of years now, but the fruit parfait disappeared. When I asked if they could make it, the youngest staff member was the only one... More

The wait in the drive-thru can be longer than your average 'fast food' establishment, but the quality of the food at DQ is better than most, and their menu offers more variety--which is nice in a town that doesn't boast a whole lot of 'fast food' type dining options. I still miss the old DQ flame-broiled burgers with the 'brazier'... More

Typical fast food fare.....the service was very quick, the young girl at the cash was a little confused, but she was in training so that was to be expected. The food arrived very quickly and was tasty, but average.

The burgers are so thin and it tastes like all bun no meat. Aside from that all their food is good. Just a pet peave I have with all fast food burgers. So when I see baked potato my mind is made up.

Since I can't eat anything containing barley, rye or wheat, they adjust my order without fuss to provide me with a delicious fastfood meal. Also, the joking that the staff provide during my visits add to the atmosphere.

Had DQ ice creams before but never had the food because there is no DQ where we live. Had the #3 combo; Grillburger, Fries and drink. The Grillburger was good. Quite tasty. The fries were good too. The young lady who took our order was just a sweetheart.
