Noon–9pm dailyAverage ice-cream cone: $3
As far as soft-serve ice cream is concerned, the Queen is king. Sure, it’s an international chain, but this location, with its windowside booths packed with smiling faces and outdoor seating along a family-friendly stretch of Southport, retains the feel of a neighborhood original. Besides cones, sundaes and their famous “Blizzard” mash-ups, this DQ also offers hot dogs and barbecue sandwiches.
