Dairy Queen - fast food in retro style

This, the first Dairy Queen on the peninsula, opened it's doors in 1968.  For roughly the first 25 years of it's existence it was only open for three-quarters of the year, the owners closing it every winter to go down to Florida.  They lived in the mobile home on the property behind the restaurant.  Starting in the mid-90's ownership changed and DQ was opened year round.  By the beginning of the 2000s, the restaurant began to look run down and show signs of it's age.  A remodel was done that updated the restaurant, but stayed true to the original 60's style.

The restaurant serves all the traditional DQ menu.  On my recent visit I bought a Blizzard, one of my all time favorites.  The service was friendly and quick, though I felt the price was a little much for what I received.
