List RulesNo desserts or drinks.

Known for its cool treats and hot eats, there’s more to try at Dairy Queen than just the Blizzards (though they are pretty rad). From burgers to hot dogs and more, we’re ranking the best things to order at DQ, with the calories listed for each (ya know, because health is wealth, even when you're eating fast food).

Founded way back in 1940, Dairy Queen has more than 4,500 locations around the country. Chances are, there’s a Dairy Queen near you. From fan-favorite classic DQ menu options like the Honey BBQ Glazed Chicken Strip Basket and the zesty Pretzel Sticks, to lighter options like the Chicken BLT Salad and Turkey BLT, you’re sure to find something you love. Dairy Queen also has its own breakfast and lunch menus, so make sure you plan accordingly.

Vote up your favorite Dairy Queen menu items at, and vote down all the ones you’ve tried and didn’t like. And if your favorite DQ menu item is missing, add it to the list -- that way other readers can see how popular it is. And if you didn't know, Dairy Queen's secret menu also goes hard.
