After the news came Monday that 10 panhandle Dairy Queen locations were closed, on top of the news that Vasari LLC, a company that operates more than 70 Dairy Queens, filed for bankruptcy late last year, many Statesman readers responded with worry.

The restaurant, equally famous for its food and its many dessert concoctions, is a popular mainstay in small towns across Texas, often the only restaurant some road trippers will come upon for miles. 

A prevailing theme in the comments of the stories we posted about possible Dairy Queen closures was which DQ location is the best.

Readers were quick to share their opinions and fond memories of Texas Dairy Queens.
