Dairy Queen – the name itself promotes mental images of ice cream treats that have an endless reputation for satisfying those cold delight desires that haunt all of us at one time or another. Fairbury is fortunate to have our own Dairy Queen, conveniently located on Route 24 two blocks west of the First Street stop light. Inside this ice cream palace the industrious staff on duty can whip up those blizzards, milk shakes, malts, sundaes, cones, and a whole host of specialty preparations that put a magical spin on their trademark soft serve ice cream.
With a huge variety of flavored syrups, a tantalizing use of fruit pieces, cookies and candy, and a unique way to utilize soft drinks these wizards of sweet tooth appeasement can create those chilled concoctions that have a lot of us going, “Ah, now that’s what I’m talking about!” Just about anything you can think of in the way of ice cream preparations, from liquid to solid, can be found in the DQ’s menu repertoire and most come in a variety of sizes so the serving can be customized to the need.
In addition to all of that there is another whole side to this operation that harnesses the culinary venue of the grill and the deep fat fryer to bring us a multitude of sandwiches, wraps, chicken strips,shrimp and accompaniments that can make the visit good for lunch or dinner or an in between snack. You can get just a sandwich or, the full meal deal in basket form – you can mix and match and put together a feast that is more than worthy of the time it will take to eat it. The DQ’s convenience includes a drive through window with their menu displayed on a huge marquee right there by the speaker so you can get your hungries satisfied from the comfort of your own car continued on to the comfort of your own home.
The Dairy Queen has continued with a long historical tradition of doing it right with the things that we love the most for those special times or, just anytime that we feel the need for those great treats that only they can give us. They’ve got it down to a science folks so when you get the urge to splurge go on up there and make it count – there’s nothing better on a hot summer day and for those of us who know how good it is there’s nothing wrong with a cold winters day either. They are there year round with comfortable hours all seven days of the week – plenty of seating on the inside, fast and efficient from the counter and the drive through even though each order is made to order.
So, no matter the reason, your turn to cook, just got a taste for it, treating the kids, treating yourself, or celebrating a personal occasion, the Dairy Queen has what it takes and you can be enjoying the great taste of whatever fancy or hunger urge you might have in basically no time at all. They have a great variety of cold case items that you can enjoy as well from ice cream cakes to the every famous Dilly Bar, and ice cream sandwiches which gives everyone the option to stock their freezer with a few things for the home front or, for those family get togethers where multiple on hand treats come in handy. Go ahead, indulge yourself – when you’re done and the only thing that’s left is the smile on your face you’ll be glad you did.
