|Austin||2912 Guadalupe St||* First Dairy Queen in Texas, has been Burger Tex here since the mid-'90s|
* There's an off-chance that Burger Tex moved up half a block and Taco Shack is the real location
|Bryan||216 W. 19th Street||* Address is now 219 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Street|
* Now "Taqueria El Nopalito"
|3000 Highway 21 E||This is what an early 1980s directory states, but at least as of 1993 the address became 3003. Did the phone book make a mistake or did it jump across the street?|
|2124 Boonville Road||The address for this is mentioned but the only thing nearby at that point is an Exxon gas station. |
While it's plausible DQ was in the gas station (other restaurants were), the addresses would've been closer.
The most likely candidate seems to be a restaurant known as La Botana at 2210 E William J Bryan Pkwy, Boonville Road's name west of the highway, which was definitely a former Dairy Queen.
|Corsicana||1930 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. (East 7th Avenue)||*Moved to 2205 S. Interstate Highway 45 in 2015, demolished for a rebuild of the McDonald's next door.|
The solarium of the old store suggests it was something else prior to Dairy Queen, but it was still DQ in the mid-1990s.
|Conroe||5500 West Davis Street||Closed and demolished between 2006 and 2009.|
|Dallas||4800 Bryan Street||Re-opened as Jade Garden in 1982 (closed 2016)|
|Galveston||2528 Broadway St.||Closed in the 2000's, now a seafood restaurant. The building housed a number of other restaurants as well, they all had a short life span. (Urbannizer)|
|Houston||310 Cavalcade||Later "Dairy Land", though DL razed and rebuilt circa 2014.|
|1802 West 18th Street||Now "Hughie's Tavern & Vietnamese Grille". Facade substantially altered but the sign is not. Up until 2012-ish, this was "Queen Burger" which resembled Dairy Queen much closer. The original DQ appears to have closed sometime in the early 2000s.|
|6031 Airline Dr.||Now Pan-American OB/GYN.|
|8394 Bellaire Blvd.||Now Loanstar Title Loans. Facade isn't substantially altered at all.|
|7215 Bellfort St.||later El Compita Tire Shop, now Texans Auto Mart|
|8430 Boone Rd.||Now Serrano's Events|
|1722 Dairy Ashford Road||Closed in the 1990s. Now George's Pastaria. [West Houston Archives]|
|10516 Eastex Freeway||*There were three buildings at the northwest corner of Saunders and Dodson |
demolished in the late '90s/early '00s, DQ looks to be the center one.
|2356 Rice||*Remodeled into Hungry's Café & Bistro.|
*One of the few old Houston Dairy Queens that are still restaurants
|6649 Harrisburg Blvd.||Facade remodeled, now Diva's Fashion & Shoes|
|9155 Irvington Blvd.||Now Abiding Love Baptist Church. From sundaes to Sundays?|
|5590 North Freeway||Now Frenchy's(?)|
|470 Parker||Renovated into Parker Food Mart|
|6516 Westheimer Rd.||Strip center location?|
|14510 Memorial Drive||Formerly Del Taco and currently Schlotzsky's. See the Del Taco list for more info.|
|1702 Yale St.||A vacant lot for decades, but there was a DQ here.|
|5854 Highway 6||Later Dairy Country in the 1990s, became Church's Chicken around 1999/2000. Same building.|
|Lockhart||Main & Prairie Lea||*The original DQ opened in 1956 and closed in 1994.|
* In 1997, it was still being used for filming
* The current DQ was built in 1968 and has been renovated a few times, most recently in 2011.
|Pasadena||6919 Spencer Highway||Building's been gone since the 1980s. Now a Jiffy Lube. Google Earth helps.|
|Rosenberg||1318 Ave H.||* Appears that prior to the mid-2000s it was an old-style limited menu walk-up (it closed many years ago).|
* Now Flamingo Snow Cones, but the sign looks old.
|1008 Herndon Drive||More typical Dairy Queen, moved to 1005 Herndon Drive. Now Papa Mex.|
|Rowlett||4808 Lakeview Parkway||Later Pancho & Lefty's Tex-Mex Cafe & Cantina, now vacant|
|Spring||18135 Kuykendahl||Closed "2001ish", now Trailer Connection [Montrose1100]|
|26904 I-45||now Crow's Nest (liquor store)|
|Waco||1500 S. 18th Street||Now Taquerias Arandas. I remember when this resembled a Dairy Queen much closer in the early 2000s (with the "red lemon" logo still intact) but still a Mexican restaurant. The new owners have made this much less obvious.|
|1025 West Waco Drive||Now "Corner Food Store", awning painted a turquoise color|
|5804 Bosque Blvd.||According to BaylorFans, later torn down for Chili's. Address may be inaccurate.|
|600 Sun Valley Blvd.||Relocated down the street c. 2007, building torn down for Barnett Contracting.|
|Webster||225 El Dorado Blvd.||Became Texas Grill & Ice Cream early 2000s (franchisee disconnection?) but in 2015 became a Starbucks.|
|West||701 W. Oak Street||Torn down 2008 for a Sonic.|
|Valley Mills||602 W Avenue C||Now "Burger N Wok"|
