Dairy Queen was founded in 1940 in Joliet, Illinois by John Fremont McCullough. McCullough originally developed the soft serve formula with his son Bradley in 1938.

Currently, the Dairy Queen brand is owned by the large conglomerate, Berkshire Hathaway.

There are 5 main types of Dairy Queen restaurants:

  • Standard – primarily offer DQ frozen treats.
  • DQ / Orange Julius – Original DQ restaurant that features foods and drinks from the Orange Julius menu.
  • Dairy Queen Brazier – DQ restaurants that serve similar foods to the new Grill & Chill restaurants.
  • DQ Grill & Chill – New larger DQ restaurants that serve everything including their frozen treats as well as the new GrillBurger menu.
  • Texas Country Foods – DQ restaurants that are similar to the Brazier or Grill & Chill, except they are in Texas and have a custom-branded menu.

Dairy Queen sells many different foods including Blizzards, soft serve ice cream, Smoothies, Shakes & Malts, GrillBurgers, and more. This large variety of food makes the Dairy Queen prices a little higher than the average fast food restaurant. But they have many selections that most fast food restaurants do not, especially when it comes to frozen treats.

      I love dairy queen so much because of their awesome food, and there ice cream.

      1. Paul Spranger says:

        I just paid 3.75 (including sales tax) for a SMALL dipped cone at Dairy Queen on North Rock Road, wichita, ks
        Never ever go back for any item!

        1. Cameron McClellan says:

          Dairy Queen is good but there a few times I would get there chicken strip basket and gravy would look like it had water in it but other then that it was good

        2. I just paid 10.95 for a large blizzard and a chili dog

    2. wow med is 6.59 in Canada large is close to 8$ what a rip off

      1. for a blizzard that is’

        1. We paid over $10 for each large blizzard and they charged an extra $.65 for adding peanut butter sauce even though of course, the sauce displaces the blizzard it goes into. This happened 3/2023 in Green Valley, AZ. We thought the cashier was kidding when they told us the charge at the window.

      2. I just paid over 13 dollars for 2 small blizzards. Never again thats just rip off.

        1. I paid over $20 for 2 mini and 2 small blizzards….far cry from the prices stated. Good thing I don’t “crave” a blizzard very often! $4.39 for a mini blizzard – I should have just ignored my craving.

    3. Evan Johnson says:

      I would recommended two cakes because of the amount of people.

    4. I don’t even see the cake on this menu

    5. no Karen but thank you.

    6. Until the late ’70s, I went to DQ between 3 to 6 times a week. Their ice cream was so creamy. Then they changed their formula. That changed how often I went to maybe once a week at best. Now I don’t go at all because their prices are to high. I can go to a restaurant & eat cheaper & get more food. Their choice.

    7. I got a double cheeseburger plain, small fry and a small blizzard it cost $13.05..that is totally ridiculous, its like $4 overpriced will never go back..they have nothing but dumbass kids working that dont know how to use the cash register..

  2. There Food is the best, i would not call it fast food ! Love that stuff!
    Blizzards Rock, Burgers melt in your Mouth.

  3. Uhh large shake in Tennessee is only $3.83 after tax….

  4. Why do Dairy Queens never remodel their stores?
    Love the food,reminds me of my childhood,
    The stores are outdated,look dirty,inefficient counters and never enough staff.Restrooms are the worst!
    I am in the Houston, Tx.area and would love to see Dairy Queen put some money back into the old existing restaurants.
    Thank you for listening.

    1. well here in Wisconsin st. Croix falls the dq is amazing and so not like that

  5. Mike in Warminster PA says:

    Love the DQ! chili cheese dog my favorite. Great place to take the kids and lots to select from. They also carry bags of rejects (Ice cream varities I guees somebody made wrong and they package for resale at a good price, but you never know what’s in the bag) is it on the menu? I did not see it.

  6. I like everything on the menu except the prices. Please make more affordable and modernize your store.

    1. Passing through says:

      Agree with you there, Prices were always too high!
      There Stores are becoming bit unkept and dirty.

    2. good food but yes high prices. we got one 1/4 lb bacon cheese grillburger, 1/4 lb cheese grillburger, one large fry, one box of dilly bars, $23.91. no itemized receipt. seems a high price for what we got.

  7. What is the price of a blizzard in a cone???

  8. Who would ever think that DQ has the best tacos?? Love them.

  9. ive used this to play fast food with my friends it is really fun thanks tifbnmcjfodnci

  10. I really like this place, ‘cept it’s super cold inside. Their Blizzards keep me coming back, plus nice cashiers and a non-dangerous miasma.

  11. Lee Evans says:

    Would be so nice if fast food restaurants in general stocked serious food for vegetarians. I’m so tired of stopping in and nothing substantial in the way of protein so I have to eat French Fries. I hate French Fries. Would be so nice to have a non-meat burger or non-chicken patties. Get the message, DQ? We are out here, all ready to over-run the first fast food restaurant that has fast vegetarian food that tastes good and is substantial.

    1. Or you could just eat meat like a normal person.

      1. XD that’s hilarious

      2. girl /boy leave him/her alone she/he just be wanting a nice vegetarian option least she/he be out here not eating animals like u

    2. Lee Evan's Dad says:

      Son I’m disappointed in you. I don’t know what happened after you went to that hippie college, but it must have been terrible to turn you into a vegetarian. Your mother and I love you. Please stop being weird and eat a cheeseburger.

      Why would vegetarians pay for food when there is so much free grass outside?

      1. haha amazing, your great

    1. Do u know where the cake is?

  12. i would like to find out how and where does dairy queen get thier prices. such as making transporting, commercialing, and distribution.

    1. hongkongphooey says:

      Pray to Soft Serve God and obey economic commandments.

  13. These prices can’t be right for Washington State. It says the flamethrower burger combo is $8.76 which is like $9.60 after tax when i just got that combo yesterday in Spanaway for $7.65 after tax. That’s like a 2 dollar difference O.o

    1. Same in Wisconsin a small vanilla cone is $2.79 each INSANE!

    2. And, that was in Hortonville, WI. I guess the franchise is not regulating pricing.

  14. I like the food but where’s the cake menu

  15. What is the best ice cream there?

    1. Jason Arthur Johnson says:

      The dipped cones. Awesome.

  16. Aidan Heitman says:

    I think that dairy queen is good but there prices are a little high

  17. jack beireis says:

    bring down your blizzard prices please and ill be your friend

  18. I heard a lot of good things about dairy queen. I’m interested to see what happens. There is a building in Glenville that just shut down it was the Aubuchon Hardware store. It is right near near Hannaford I know for a fact some people like variety like me. A lot of people can walk, ride bikes or drive there. I suggest to maybe low the price of the 4p chicken strips because most of us asume they are very small & consider I rip off. I haven’t been there & I’m looking for a especially close to my house. Your decent competition is Applebees, Panera Bread and Target cafe & Starbucks in it & Starbucks in the Price Chopper, Pizza Hut and subway neon sushi it’s not really good it was better as friendlys. We definitely need more restaurants in our area.

  19. It is a decent building but I don’t know if you might need to fix it up

  20. the prices listed seem too high to be an average for my state. they are more than double what we pay in our city. that seems off.

    1. Editorial Staff says:

      Hi Karen,
      What state are you located in? Thanks!

  21. I bought a 1/4 lb. Bacon Cheese GrillBurger – Combo today(2/9/2016) in Muscatine Ia.It does seem some of the other prices you list are also a bit high.BTW that combo was $6.20 including tax…you had $6.42 NOT including tax.

  22. I did d.q. in Alaska for almost 20 years now they are walking distance going to check them out!! hope I am satisified!!

  23. Chandra guthrie says:

    You need to up date this with dairy Queen prices they are not right in some dairy queens I live in Pevely Mo and it don’t match with them at all it

  24. How much are the children n dumplings

  25. Nancy Burkhart says:

    Interesting. I just got home from my nearest DQ in Ohio. Hadn’t had a Blizzard in ages but I felt like having one. They charged me $4.69 for a MEDIUM. That’s the price listed for a LARGE. And it definitely isn’t large. I thought they overcharged me last time I went there, too, about a year ago. Well, I definitely won’t go back there again!

  26. Current manager at a DQ in Indiana here. It’s important to know that most Dairy Queen stores are independently owned and prices will vary depending on the owners. Just wanted to let y’all know! 🙂

  27. Emma Wish says:


  28. BRETT E DUPUY says:





  29. Do you have sugar free ice cream, smoothies, milk shakes etc?

  30. What is the price of a dilly bar

  31. Mary Rudd says:

    just went to same one I alwys go to used to get 3 piece chick strip w/drink and ice cream for $5 and 5 piece for $6 today I got 4pc no drink or ice cream for 7.19 and 6 pc for 8.19 and they dont ask if you want a dipping sauce just give you ranch looking at the menu on this site a 4 pc is 5.49 and 6 pc 6.89 very disappointed was also told they never had a chick strip lunch special that included ice cream sorry but I used to get it all the time sad how business places are taking advantage of their customers

  32. I got charged over 12 dollars for a 6 piece chicken strip basket today at the dq by my house. Rip off an I won’t ever eat there again.

  33. Carol Frederick says:

    Was charged $4.99 for a small Blizzard at the Dairy Queen in Zephyrhills, FL. Felt this was a high price for a small.

  34. DQ customer says:

    I gave my friend a $5 bill to get herself a medium Blizzard. The posted price on the menu was $4.49 plus tax so I knew $5 would cover it. The clerk, named Makayla, rang the price up as $4.69 plus tax, making it $5.08. I informed her that this was the wrong price and that’s where the weirdness began. She became completely silent and started rolling her eyes. She kept looking over toward the cook. I called out to the cook thinking she was the manager and would intervene but she would not make eye contact with me or respond. It was a losing situation for me. It’s not about the extra cents, it’s about informing them about the mistake and the clerk becoming unbelievably rude. This is a Richeson-owned restaurant located in De Leon, TX. It is notorious for being dirty and its poor service.

  35. I just paid $6.29 for a large strawberry shake, way above the price quoted here. This is in the Seattle area. Are DQ prices all over the place in different cities? The clerk was very rude when I asked her.

  36. usman shoukat says:

    lets see the the impact of fast food its a injurious to human health

  37. Ira Gerlis says:

    Five of my family love blizzard, shake and ice cream cone or cup in the past with a good reasonable price BUT now the prices are OUTRAGEOUS AND EXPENSIVE!!!

    GREEDY!!!!! Of course we find another fast food with the best prices to compare with your company. If your business is not willing to please all of us, BELIEVE that your business will file a BANKRUPT!!!!!!

    Hope to hear a good news to all of us regarding the lowest or reasonable prices!

  38. Sun City West DQ is making out like a one armed bandit!! We ordered the same items 3 different times.
    One med Blizzard, one mini. !st time $13.99 , second $13.14, 3rd time $12.62 all incl tax. I can go to
    grocery store get two 1.5 qt of Tilamook ice cream and have change left over. GOOD BYE DQ !
