Texans are drawn to DQ restaurants for the unique, Texas-centric menu featuring items that can’t be enjoyed anywhere outside of Texas. There’s the Dude CLASSIC Chick’n Fried Steak Sandwich and the Hungr-Buster, the BeltBuster with two quarter-pound patties, and the truly awesome Triple-Buster.
Don’t forget the Texas T-Brand Tacos, the Steak Finger Country Basket with the best cream gravy anywhere and Chicken and Dumplings, based on a homemade recipe from a DQ restaurant franchise owner’s mom.
But the full DQ lineup of treats has always been the sweetest of reasons to visit the restaurant with friends and family. Fans of all ages have made sweet memories while dipping into a sundae, savoring a Blizzard Treat or biting into a delicious Dilly Bar.
