Most Dairy Queen locations are closed for Thanksgiving, but a few may still be open. You’ll want to check with your nearest location before heading over.

A representative of Dairy Queen told Heavy regarding Thanksgiving: “Because DQ stores are independently owned and operated, store hours and any special offers may vary by location.”
