Dairy Queen
St. Joseph, MO
This Dairy Queen, while now sided over and wearing a new roof, still has the original neon sign. [map]

Dairy Queen
Huntington, IN
This Huntington Dairy Queen sign features a sundae instead of a cone. I don't know if this was an option or a later change. I have never seen another sign like this one. It does appear to be original and untampered with. The sign is lit at night. For more, see this website. [map]

Dairy Queen
Iowa City, IA
This Dairy Queen opened around 1952. It was hit by a tornado in 2006. The original sign on the building was destroyed. Later that year, the stand was rebuilt and reopened with this replica sign. The two ice cream cone pole signs by the road survived the tornado. In 2008, the stand was then hit by flooding but the damage was less extensive. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

former Dairy Queen
Cannon Falls, MN
This former Dairy Queen has been known as the Dairy Inn since at least the 1980s. The Dairy Queen sign was adapted. [map]

Dairy Queen
Anadarko, OK
Dairy Crest
Springfield, OH
This Dairy Queen cone sign must have had neon originally and a paint job like the ones in Iowa City above. I believe this location opened in 1949. This photo is from 2011. By 2013, the location's name was changed to Dairy Freeze. The Dairy Queen logo on the cone sign had been painted over. [map]

This Dairy Crest was originally a Dairy Queen. Around 1952, it broke away from the chain and changed its name and sign. The first photo was taken 2003; the second in 2009. I believe this business is closed now. [map]

Loder's Shake Shoppe
North Royalton, OH
Loder's Shake Shoppe opened as a Dairy Queen in 1952. It became Loder's Shake Shoppe in 1965. The neon sign was evidently adapted then. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

Edd's Drive-in
Pascagoula, MS
Edd's Drive-in opened in 1953 as a Dairy Queen. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

former Dairy Queen
Beaver, UT
This Dairy Queen now houses Mel's Drive Inn. In 2003, it was known as Annie's Drive Inn. [map]

former Dairy Queen
Monticello, UT
former Dairy Queen
Tampa, FL
This Dairy Queen in Monticello now houses the Shake Shack. [map]

This Dairy Queen sign in Tampa was adapted by Sooo Good Southern Barbeque. This photo is from 2009. The business closed around 2013. The building now houses Big Momma's Smokehouse BBQ. The Dairy Queen sign had been painted white and the business name is spelled out with red backlit plastic letters. In 2015, the sign was repainted for Cajun in a Truck. The painted fire is back to an ice cream cone. By 2018, the building was housing Andrew Pandrew's Jerk Hut. The ice cream was painted over again. [map]
