Although originally started in Illinois, there are more Dairy Queen‘s in Texas than in any other state. In fact, DQ has a special menu for Texas stores featuring items like the Hunger-buster and the Belt-buster.
When stepping into a DQ, there are only two things you need to be aware of:
- The Dude
DQ has a bunch of other stuff on the menu, but all you really need to know about is The Dude (that’s the #6 combo at my DQ). The Dude is a chicken-fried steak sandwich.
Most folks already know that Blizzards are a soft serve treat. A good DQ employee will flip that Blizzard over to show you how thick and delicious it really is.
What a lot of folks forget is that there are 3 seasonal Blizzard flavors that must absolutely not be missed:
- Thin Mint
- Pumpkin Pie
- Peppermint Chip
When these flavors are on the menu, you must pull over and grab one. Other than that, just about any flavor is acceptable (though Heath Bar is the best).
