New Dairy Queen In Frisco Texas

A new Dairy Queen, the Texas Stop Sign, recently opened in Frisco, Texas. The new location is just south of Main on the east side of Preston Road near the heart of old Frisco.

I’m not originally from Texas. The Air Force brought me here in 1979 and stationed me at Reese Air Force Base in Lubbock. On one of my many motorcycle rides in the Panhandle, I stumbled upon a Dairy Queen.

While I liked ice cream, I was really hungry that day. I’d never heard of a Country Basket nor cream gravy.  It was love at first bite! My tour of duty at Reese ended and I was transfered to Germany (German food is also wonderful but that’s the subject of another blog) but I never really forgot about DQ.

As luck would have it, the Air Force brought me back to Texas several times over my 21-year career. I eventually retired and settled in Dallas. Imagine my disappointment to discover that there were only a couple of DQs within driving distance–one in McKinney and one in east Plano.

One of my neighbors is employed by DQ’s corporate headquarters and I was complaining about the lack of a local DQ. I got a nice surprise when he told me about the new Frisco location! Needless to say I’ve been up there a couple of times already.
