I gave up
This is a good premise, poorly executed. I couldn't finish/get past the third store and I gave up because it was frustrating as opposed to a fun challenge like some other games' difficult levels.
There is no regularly available power-up to deal with customer patience. There are just cones that randomly appear and aren't necessarily for patience. The staff members are painfully slow and just get in your way most of the time, but there are places where I just couldn't do it by myself. Also, you have to ensure that other stores are run in your absence, entrusting to them to slow staff. All staff costs have to be recuperated, so that puts you at a slow starting place. It seemed that customers were incredibly impatient and quick to dash out.
The basic premise was running a DQ store with various food, desserts, and beverages was fun and had a lot of little tasks built in. I gave it two stars because it was fun until the staff got in the way and it was too difficult to finish without being lucky enough for a heart power-up to appear. I will note that I played the last level I could to about 15-20 times (trying to leave it alone for a couple weeks in between waves of effort) before I just uninstalled the game.

Cute concept; not-so-cute execution
This game has a cute concept--especially from a marketing perspective. What better way to introduce or reinforce your brand than through a game that the customer pays for (lol). However, where dairy queen failed is in the execution. The game is slow (might be great for older people or kids), the characters are not cute (not that they have to be attractive, but the design of them should be cute) and this game wasn't very challenging.
Overall, this game gets an A for effort and D for execution--with all the money DQ has, they should invested in better game strategy, graphics and mechanics.

There are better games to spend your money on
Bought it as a daily deal and still not even sure that was worth it.
This game is quite short as time management games go. Everything was a bit too simplistic.
The art is teeeerrrible, but then most TMGs don't look all that great anyway. Still, this is one of the worst imo hehe.
Story and characters do not add anything to the game either.

This game is very fun but it only lasted 5 weeks ( game time not real life) and lasted me about 1 week (reality). Very challenging at the begining with so many ice cream treats, but was still VERY fun!!! Would DEF reccomend to Time Mangement lovers

Great for bored days.
I had this game on my laptop and it was just addicting! You have to race around getting peoples orders, and i'm a fan of time management games, so it fits right in! Now, I got it on the Mac, and it's so much better, because my laptops slow now, and I cant play it, I missed that game so much! I recommend this game for all ages!

I absolutely loved this game! It's ver addicting!
The trivia was cool
Upgrades were excellent
A weekly quota made the game very challenging.
The minigame at the end of each week was very fun. It added extra fun to an aready great game.
The tutorial kind of dragged on the game a little bit
The storyline was kind of average.
The extra employee. He was very slow and really anoying, and on top of all that you were forced to have him AND he set you back $10.
That was the one bad thing about this game. I absolutely loved it and will recommend to anyone and everyone!

Cute, but ...
Don't pay full price for this game. Not worth it. It's cute and fun but only for a short time. It's over very quickly. Not many levels at all.

Fun Restaraunt Game!
This was a very fun game. There's many dessert treats to make and it's fun in the later levels because of the new additions to the restaraunts. The comics were good and you can even hire staff to help you out.
The only downside I can think of is how there's only 35 levels, but it's fun to replay and get all the upgrades. =)
