My wife and I decided to stop at this location on our way back from Austin as I had a hankering to satisfy some long-overdue brazier desires.\r
We were greeted promptly by a less-than-eager, but fully serviceable DQ associate. I opted to jump in with a taco for my first course. An item not often top-of-mind for many DQ'ers, but it should be. Paired with a large Diet Coke, it was everything I'd hoped it would be (after a friendlier employee brought forth the all-important taco sauce that had been carelessly left off of my tray). \r
At this point, I was starting to lose faith in the gentleman behind the counter, but I went forward with course number two: a Hunger Buster with a side of large onion rings (still paired with the original Diet Coke). My companion went with only an order of fries and her own Diet Coke.\r
All were cooked to absolute perfection, making me question my ever-present hesitation between visits. Even the burger's vegetables possessed the quality and texture of an early-spring farmers market. The Diet Cokes were of a faultless carbonation/syrup ratio, AND, they have the 'good ice'. Ya know, the kind that looks like crystal hamster pellets, similar to that which one might find at Sonic.\r
Could I possible re-start my journey before sampling the very thing that made DQ famous? Well, yes and no. In a time-saving attempt, I asked my wife to order a small chocolate soft-serve for me while I made a quick visit to the lavatory. Upon my return, I was informed that this location had no chocolate soft-serve. What in blazes?!?! Clearly, I made an error in requesting someone else do my ordering for me as I was offered no explanation as to the reason for this lack of a DQ staple. I was dumbstruck by my companion's curiosity deficiency, however, I didn't want to wait in line again just to hear a reason... so I left feeling somewhat dissatisfied and, yet, mostly satisfied all at the same time. \r
I would have offered 5 stars, and many will probably suggest that my 4 star rating is a bit generous, considering the inexplicable absence of chocolate soft-serve....3 stars, however, just would not give the extraordinary brazier excellence the credit it is due.
