Why is there only one Dairy Queen, that I'm aware of, in ABQ? We're in the desert and have one Dairy Queen?
I have to drive all the way to Montgomery and Louisiana to get a chocolate dipped cone or Blizzard. I could go to Sonic and get a blizzard type treat, but it's not exactly the same.
Sonic is pretty good. But being from the Midwest I sure do miss Dairy Queen. Even a Tasty Freeze would suffice. Any kind of cheap ice cream joint.
Can anyone tell me where else I can get a chocolate dipped cone? Or where your favorite place is for shakes and blizzard type treats?
I just googled ABQ Dairy Queen. How could I have lived here so long and not know the other locations?
I lament that there isn't one closer to downtown, since the one downtown closed.
There's a DQ really close to my pad, and I've been grabbing a blizzard on a near-weekly basis. Man, that is the cure for these ridiculously scorching days, I tell you.
According to Google, there is one at Central and Rio Grande, approximately. That's probably the closest to Downtown.
There was one on Central down near the Juarez bus station. I think there was one on Broadway, too. The one on Lomas near Wyoming has been closed for a few years.
There's one in Edgewood with a bunch of curio stuff for sale. Bull horns, bull whips, bullshit. Good bullshit.
And, of course, the one on Louisiana north of Montgomery that's been jamming every time I've been there.
the dq by the juarez bus station moved to the old kfc on central across from the baskin robins near old town. the others are on montgomery & louisanna, edgewood and flying c.
There is a DQ on Kathryn, just east of San Mateo.
DQ on Isleta just south of Bridge in the South Valley
I always get one of 2 things: chocolate dipped vanilla cone or a PB cup blizzard.
There's one on South Broadway (between Coal and Bridge, I think). It's an old-school walk-up DQ, like the one that used to be by the Juarez bus stop on Central.
not as creamy. And they don't have chocolate dipped cones. But if I'm close to one I'm still stopping. AND they have tots. Bonus.
The Downtown DQ is still on Central, but is a block or so west of Rio Grande Blvd on the south side of the street. I think the building used to be a KFC.
That said, Albuquerque needs more DQs, not less.
is the one I've been frequenting. It seems to shut down pretty early though, as does the rest of the NE Heights.
It has the coolest old-school signage. Here's a picture. That's pre-1937 Route 66, baby.
What is up with the staff not making the curly Q on top of the cone? That is DQ's signature. I've been to 2 different DQs now and neither of them had the curly Q. How hard is it?!
AND they took Brazier out of the name. So disappointed.
