Serving Up Smiles Since 1949!
You know you’ve officially survived a Minnesota winter when you find yourself standing in line at the Historic Moorhead Dairy Queen’s traditional walkup window as we open for the season. On March 1st, regardless of what Mother Nature thinks, we say it’s time for a Blizzard!
One taste and you’ll discover for yourself why locals can’t get enough of our fare, not just because it’s the best in town, but because it’s the best in the country. Maybe the world. And it’s fun food too!
You see, at the Historic Moorhead Dairy Queen, we’re not afraid to experiment with new treats or hold on to beloved favorites, like our mouthwatering Bar-B-Ques and Chili, Monkey Tails, Chipper Sandwiches, Mr. Malties, Old-Fashion Sodas, and more. Customers simply adore our handmade, homemade food.
Since Bob and Phyllis Litherland founded the store in 1949, we have been the original hometown fan favorite. As a staple of Moorhead, Minnesota’s downtown area and one of the oldest stores in the Dairy Queen system, owners Troy and Diane DeLeon are proud to carry on the Litherlands’ tradition of creating tasty food at a fair price and serving it in a family-friendly atmosphere.
