Most people have some kind of memory associated with Dairy Queen, me included. But everything seems to be changing quickly with regard to their operation and menu items. Not so at one location out west. They are keeping things "retro", and getting away with it too. Nice to see that in a time of stringent corporate franchise uniformity.

It reminds me of our local KFC, which, up until only a few years ago, was actually known as Crow's. It had the KFC logo and brand, but also served lots of other things like homemade pies, baked steak, and other meals. It finally closed and was rebuilt as just another KFC. Lame.

You're missing out on something good.

I wish I could've gone to Dairy Queen in its early days.

There are some Dairy Queen locations, but they are few and far between. A lot of the ones around here pretty much only sell ice cream and a few food items like chicken strips. There was one at the local mall, but it closed down a few years ago and got replaced with a Sweet Factory.

One of the locations here locally closes during the winter.

Dairy Queen used to be fun, but now it's feels so ordinary. The food is still good, but it feels like someone sucked the life out of DQ when they gave Dennis the Menace the boot! Things just aren't the same anymore.

i miss when you could get a double cheeseburger for a 1.59 now you can get a burger for that but it's made from soy paddies you have to spend over 3 dollars for a double fixed the original way with real beef.
if they put the double back down to even 2 dollars would be great.
and i miss the foil wrappers kept them warm for longer so if someone went on a burger run it would still be warm when it got to you.
