A Southern Institution

"Larger towns have schools, and almost every town has a water tower. Wherever Main Street is, the courthouse sits at the end of it. There's the cemetery, and there are the churches. Then, if the town is big enough, there's the Dairy Queen." 

We have one in our small town. An interesting read here.

Hey Mike - the South owes a great debt to Texas for birthing DQ - long live the Dilly Bar!

Correction. I was informed by a reader that DQ was actually "birthed" in Illinois. My apologies for the error. I would have posted the reader's comment but chose not to for 2 reasons:

1 - the person commenting introduced their remarks with juvenile name calling.

2 - the name caller posted anonymously and, is thus, a coward.

News flash - we don't post comments that insult the host and we don't post comments from cowards.

Yea DQ was birthed in the land of the penny but it moved SOUTH and Grew up in Texas along with lots of other locals SOUTH of the Mason/Dixon Line.

Yes, the South is definitely more business friendly. I have a post coming up soon about the dominance of Southern culture. It should drive certain folks crazy. ;o)
