Mrs. C had a coupon for a free light smoothie from Orange Julius dot com (along with about a bazillion other people), so we got in the chasiucruiser and headed to DQ. The place is in the Cap Mall food court, but it was clean enough and the huge lineup was orderly. We got our smoothie after a brief delay, plus a coupon for another free one tomorrow. We went with the strawberry flavored one, and it was quite tasty. Service was good and the staff remained friendly despite the obvious stress. I almost got a free smoothie without the coupon, but I told the server I was sharing with my beloved, and gave it back. They are really trying to get people to try them!
As for value, it was FREE. I would say on a normal day value is about 3 stars.
