My buddy the mayor of Del City just posted this on his face books. Del City is on a winning streak here lately.

My first job was at a Dairy Queen on SE44th and Sunnylane - across the street from Del City (44th being the dividing line).

The Garage is a wonderful burger restaurant. It is currently located on I-240 near Western at the old Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. There are also other location's in Norman and Edmond as well.
It would be great to have The Garage in Del City too along with DQ. I would never have to leave Del City to go out again.

About how I feel about it these days. When the one in Norman first opened I thougt it was ok but the newer locations I've been unimpressed with. I can say the same for S&B.

If you don't want to wait, you can always go to Moore. It's been open for a few months now.

Because the del city mayor said so. I assume he knows.

Not that is means anything, but the assessor's site still shows it as vacant unpurchased land.

Yeah well the mayor also said Olive Garden was coming to the first design of the I-40/Sooner development before that got all screwed up too. I'll trust it when I see the land purchase, not social media.

Fair enough and point taken. Have to wait and see.

In retrospect, that might end up having been a really good thing.

DQ Opening on October 11th



Grand opening set for Del City Dairy Queen
Restaurant marks another redevelopment success for Del City
Thursday, October 02, 2014 4:38 PM

DEL CITY, OK – An October 11th Grand Opening has been set for the new Dairy Queen at 5400 SE 29th Street in Del City.


This restaurant will be the second Dairy Queen in the Oklahoma City metro, following the very successful Moore location. Like the Moore restaurant, this Dairy Queen is branded as a DQ Grill and Chill and features a full product line including food, ice cream, Orange Julius, packaged treats and ice cream cakes. David Jones, owner of both locations, has indicated that the Del City location features a number of high-end upgrades designed to create a welcoming environment for customers, including flat-screen televisions, an upgraded sound system and a large outdoor patio.


“The new Dairy Queen is another example of the City and a private developer working together to redevelop a previously blighted property” said City Planner Monica Cardin. “Just a few years ago, this property was a dilapidated, crime-filled apartment complex with significant drainage and utility challenges, but now it is a first-class neighborhood development” Cardin continued.


In anticipation of large crowds for the restaurant’s Grand Opening, City officials have met with Jones to develop plans for traffic control and other public safety concerns. According to Cardin, “this location is well designed to handle large traffic flows, and city staff from the Police, Fire and Public Works Departments are prepared to help with traffic control during the initial opening days.”

And they said Del City had no entertainment value. :)You want entertainment? Be the first person in the drive thru. Get a large suv, a bee suit and a sh*t load of bees. Fill the car up with bees and drive over while wearing the bee suit. Order your food pull up to the drive thru food pick-up window and park the car, get out, shut the door and run like hell. It'll shut down the drive thru for hours and people will get pissed and with the Del City crowd, who knows what will happen after that.

Well that was random there Plutonic....had a few today? lol.

I expect parking lot to be poured this week. When I drove by last weekend, they had the forms complete and were basically ready for it. I think the building is basically done, just finishing touches, installing cooking gear, etc. So we should only be a few weeks away from opening. So note to self, avoid area for a few months.

There was a line of people in the rain, wrapped around the building. And the drive through wrapped around the entire lot, and on to Sooner (and that's a long line). You'd think they had just opened the first one in OK again or something.

Definitely staying away for a few months!!!

My wife and I went to Korean House, just down the street, on Saturday and DQ looked open but I didn't notice any crowds. I think it was early afternoon when we went.
