DQ Grill &Chill - Andover, Augusta, Derby, Maize, Wichita

DQThe founders of the Dairy Queen® system were men and women who introduced a new kind of dessert treat and, in the process, developed the foundation of the franchising industry. The history of the DQ® system is a story of a unique product that created an industry.

A Story of Sweet Success

For more than 70 years, the DQ® system's recipe for success has been simple. It's been a combination of hardworking people who own and operate restaurants, and great-tasting food and tempting treats served in our establishments.

Our phenomenal story began with the 10-cent sale of a then unnamed product on August 4, 1938, in Kankakee, Illinois. A father and son partnership in Green River, Illinois, had been experimenting with a soft frozen dairy product for some time. They contacted Sherb Noble, a good friend and customer, who agreed to run the "all you can eat" trial sale at his walk-in ice cream store. Within two hours, he dished out more than 1,600 servings of the new dessert.

Back then, food franchising was all but unheard of, but the new product's potential made it a natural for such a system. When the United States entered World War II in December 1941, there were fewer than 10 Dairy Queen® stores. However, shortly after the war, the system took off at a pace virtually unrivaled before or since. With only 100 stores in 1947, it grew to 1,446 in 1950 and then to 2,600 in 1955. Today, the DQ® system is one of the largest fast food systems in the world, with more than 6,000 restaurants in the United States, Canada and 18 other countries.

Although much has changed in the world and in the DQ® system through the years, one constant has remained: DQ® restaurants are still, and always have been, the place to find kids' sports teams celebrating a victory, business people on their lunch break and families taking time out to enjoy great food and soft serve treats. And success for the DQ® system is as simple today as it was in 1940. Satisfied customers lead to successful restaurants. Each owner of our independently owned and operated establishments worldwide is committed to nothing less than the "Fan Food not Fast FoodTM" slogan.

Best in Wichita Metro Burger Challenge 2022: How does Jumbo's Beef & Brew rate?

Jumbo's Beef & Brews
3750 N Woodlawn Blvd #102, Wichita, KS 67220

By Mike Thayer

I'm traveling around the Wichita Metro, sampling the burger offerings from any joint that has burgers on the menu, local, regional, national chain, it doesn't matter. In order to determine a true champion of burgers in the metro, I'll have to sample them all in the name of "burger science" (cough).  For the burger criteria, click here.

Happy Wednesday, hump day!  Back in the day when I worked in the corporate world, a few of my co-workers would always remind me of that Geico commercial with the camel, "Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike..."  It was always good for a laugh and helped to get us through the day.


Jumbo's Beef & Brews, Vacancy Burger
Nice Presentation, the knife in the burger thing always does it for me.

But these days I'm powering through Wednesdays free of the corporate B.S. and  enjoying the middle of the work week with burgers!

Today I visited Jumbo's Beef & Brew for a late lunch.  Known for it's Italian Beef Sandwiches and Chicago-Style Giardiniera, Jumbo's also has a great looking line-up of burgers.  In keeping within the parameters of my Burger Challenge, I went with what they call the "Vacancy," Wagyu beef patties, Tillamook Cheddar, applewood bacon, caramelized onion, pickles, crack sauce.  And yes, you read that right, Wagyu patties.  Jumbo's takes great pride in making burgers with Wagyu, which if you haven't eaten before has intense marbling.  What you get with Wagyu is a more robust flavor than regular beef and a buttery texture, a.k.a. melt in your mouth meat. 

The under the lid reveal
No real crust on the patties (soft), too much of a good thing with the crack sauce.

It didn't take long at all to receive my burger and side order of fries, in fact, I swear it was faster than fast food, which made me wonder if it was truly made to order.  The total time passed was under 6 minutes, about the time it takes to fry a batch of french fries which were piping hot when placed on my table.  I question whether you can properly cook two upscale 1/4 pound Wagyu patties AND properly assemble the burger in that time frame.   In taking pics, the two 1/4 pound patties were warm, but not almost too hot to the touch as they would be had they come directly off the flat top from the full cook.  The melt on the cheese was a tell too, it was applied during sandwich assembly and only slightly melted from residual heat, rather than getting a proper melt on the beef near the end of the cooking process. Cheese has a more robust flavor with a proper melt.

Jumbo's Beef & Brews, Vacancy Burger
Burger was over dressed.  Tillamook Cheddar is a good cheese, a quality ingredient, too bad it didn't get a proper melt.

I took the first bite, it was a good bite and a messy bite, normally, that's a good thing.  The Wagyu beef was tender and seasoned well.  The bacon was crisp and flavorful, the grilled onions provided a nice element, there was good coverage with the pickles which provided a nice tart bite.  The crack sauce was good, but the burger was overdressed with the sauce slightly overpowering what should be the star of the show, the Wagyu beef.  The pretzel bun was a good call, as it held up to all the moisture in the burger and sauce from first bite to last.  The burger patties were juicy, but was that bonafide 100% Wagyu juice from cooking?  Or was it burger juice plus moisture from a warming bin?  I wasn't in the kitchen, so I don't know, but my judgement, training and experience tells me the Wagyu was pre-cooked and the burger assembled to order, rather than cooked to order.  Taking shortcuts with Wagyu?  Call me a burger snob but that's a shame.  I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think so.

A look at the plate
Is that 100% Wagyu burger juice, or that and something other?

Side Note:  The french fries were awesome!  I loved the texture on the exterior which provided a nice light crunch and the interior was fluffy spud goodness.  Seasoned well, these were some of the best regular cut fries I've enjoyed so far in this challenge.

Costing me $16.12 for the burger and side, the Jumbo's Beef & Brew Vacancy Burger scored 56 points out of a possible 63, earning it 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.  Take away another point and this burger would have received 4 star status.  Honestly, I had higher hopes for a Wagyu touted burger.  The Vacancy Burger offers a nice combination of ingredients, great flavor pairings, but the execution just wasn't there.  There are better burgers to be enjoyed in Wichita and they're not Wagyu.  What Jumbo's offers in my opinion is not worthy of a repeat buy.  Perhaps it could be with better execution.

5 stars

Jumbo's Beef & Brews French Fry Basket
The fries were excellent!  Generous portion.

Located at 3750 N Woodlawn Blvd #102, Wichita, KS 67220, Tyler provided stellar service.  Working the bar and tables, he greeted me when I entered and was very attentive from the time I sat down until I departed.  I didn't have to ask for a drink refill, he asked how my meal was, he went above and beyond to ensure I had a good dining experience.  Thank you Tyler.
