Nice quiet DQ attached to a gas /convenient store. Nothing extra special but the service was fine. Blizzards were made the way we special ordered them.

We were traveling and wanted to get the usually quick $5 lunch. After waiting 20 minutes for the seemingly one person who was doing everything from the register to the food we got our food and was back on the road. We stopped here again and there were 4 people looking aggravated while waiting for their slow orders which leads me to think this is a constant problem here. The food was okay and the price was right but this is not fast food. This is a busy stop and the poor management of this DQ makes me crazy. Get your act together and hire more people so travelers can get in and out of this prime spot and get on their way!

I love DQ but this location is just plain filthy.
The actual dining area and attached restrooms are clean so don't be fooled.
Take a long look at the ice cream machines, the counter behind the registers and the sundae and shake centers. FILTHY!!!
I realize that there might be an occasional spill or drip but those areas look like they have never been cleaned at all. None of the kids who work there seem concerned or even attempt to wipe up the mess.
I shudder to think of what the hot foods prep areas look like if they don't even clean any of the spaces that are in clear view.
They have an 86 health inspection rating! Yuck!
Also to add insult to injury, get some responsible folks to work there. The kids there are badly in need of training.
Service is just appalling at drive thru and in restaurant.

This was just a quick stop for ice cream while traveling down I-95. We got it to go and were right back on the interstate. Restaurant and restrooms were clean. Service was fast and efficient.

Stopped here twice on our trip. Friendly staff on our first visit. Their vanilla ice cream wasn't working on our return visit. They had signs on the door letting customers know. But they weren't very helpful when we were trying to figure out what was available to order. Just told us 'we can make anything with chocolate ice cream'. But then said they couldn't make the three items we asked for. So we left.
