The Oldest Operating Dairy Queen In Colorado Has Been Serving Mouthwatering Burgers And Ice Cream For Almost 75 Years
If you are an ice cream fan (or own a TV), there is no doubt that you are familiar with Dairy Queen – the iconic franchise that serves thick blizzards, cones, sundaes, Dilly bars, and nearly every other kind of frozen novelty that you can imagine! What you may not realize, however, is that this national chain has also been a longtime Colorado staple, with one opening nearly 75 years ago:
Located in Longmont, the Downtown Dairy Queen on Main Street has been serving up smiles (and famous treats) since 1949!
Owned and operated by the same family since 1977, the Downtown Longmont Dairy Queen has seen many changes to the menu and building over the years, but one thing remains the same: Coloradans loyalty to their favorite ice creamery.
Like all great Dairy Queens, the Longmont location offers all of your favorite blizzards, bars, cones, splits, and shakes, plus a full menu of refreshing Orange Julius drinks.
Unlike all Dairy Queens, however, the Longmont location also hosts special events for the community, including trick-or-treating for the kids, a Battle of the Bands, and more.
Not only is this DQ one of the oldest in the state, but also the oldest operating restaurant in Longmont!
