Where are you leading your website visitors? Down a "scent trail" or "primrose path?" One leads to more conversions, sales; the other, not so much.

It's DQ so the ice cream concoctions are good. Otherwise, no better than McD's.

Apparently, unless you're a 25-year-old hipster, don't expect to be waited on, at least not promptly. I sat at the counter for several minutes being passed by several times by the wait staff. Only until I asked to be waited on was I, and that not courteously. I won't be back.
