That DQ is ruined already

It was simplified from the original. Looks lousy now. Might as well tear the dump down and put up a plastic one. Not that they offer ice cream, but I prefer my frozen treats not to be extruded before I eat them.

What's ruined is the neon. It's been simplified from the original.

Across from Lake Josephine. I lived three blocks away when I was in grade school, went to that DQ every day during the summer. Loved it!

Does the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota own the Dairy Queen Building? No.

Mind your own business.

that DQ is a museum, every time I go past I revel that it's still here.

every time I don't go by, it's like 1964 all over again.

Love that Dairy Queen. Unique is better than the same ole' cookie cutters. How about building a bigger DQ attached and behind it so you could still have the walk-up window service?

I would miss that old location - only thing left in the neighborhood that still remains from my childhood. I wish Ace's 66 was still on the corner of Lexington and Roselawn... penny candy and 24.9 gallon gas.

Are you kidding? I drive completely OUT OF MY WAY to patronize that particular DQ...BECAUSE IT IS RETRO. There has to be another alternative (building off the backside?) to accomodate space. I assumed they never touched the marquee and the building because I thought they appreciated what they had here in terms of historic and quaint piece of DQ history. I live in Merriam Park, where there is one just blocks away on Snelling.-But I prefer this one.

Excellent example of a liberal demanding all others conserve energy.

Why must they tear down anything that was actually built with style? Why demolish ALL of our history, and replace it with buildings that all look the same? That's crap.

That DQ is on Lexington by Ol' Mexico, i.e. Lexington and Larpenter Ave. in Roseville. That area has been sliding downhill for awhile.

Ever notice how the AMC-14 looks like Brooklyn Center on a Friday night...or North Mpls?

Perhaps the sign should be saved, or the building added onto DQ is a Minnesota company and perhaps the sign should go the History Center of DQ whose offices are in Edina would like to have a DQ museum and take the store front (long windows etc.) and bring them inside to show off.
