joshdavis Dairy Queen

Based on my way to extensive experience, this DQ location stays busy even during the Winter. Being one of the only drive-thru locations in East Lawrence, likely keeps them busy, but I have always found the service to be quite good. If you like ice cream, this location should always on your list of choices.

My personal favorite is the basic vanilla cone, but on special occasions, I have always found their ice cream cakes to be a good choice for a party.

The guys who do the repairs really know what they doing. I have taken cars to them, where they were able to resolve issues that other shops couldn't fix.

They always seem to be busy, but they will work with you to get your issues fixed in a timely manner.

joshdavis Biemer's BBQ

Biemer's is my favorite BBQ place in Lawrence. I have tried pretty much everything on the menu, but I usually go with their Large Brisket Sandwich.

When the briskets is at its best (65%) of the time, it is the best I have ever had. Moist, a little fat, but not too much. Just really tasty. The rest of the time (35%) is still better than most brisket, can be a little dryer than ideal, or maybe a little too much fat, but I still really enjoy it.

I should say, I don't even use any sauce. The way they prepare brisket, it doesn't even require it.

My second favorite is the pulled pork. Very good.

If you are going for the first time, you have to try the brisket. If you are like me, it will be difficult to try anything else.
