Nick Frattaroli, the owner of the Dairy Queen in Fairfield since 1980, has added Orange Julius drinks to the menu of ice cream, burgers and other fare.

Frattaroli said the 800-square-foot store, which opened at 1902 Post Road in 1950, was completely renovated to bring in the beverage line, as required by Dairy Queen, which is owned by millionaire financier Warren Buffett. A couple more benches were also added to the establishment's outdoor-only dining, said Frattaroli, who since 2002 has owned Rawley's, the hot dog stand next door.

Drink choices, which start at $3.75 and come in sizes small, medium and large, include about 15 Orange Julius flavors, such as lemon, mango and pina colada, and about 25 different smoothies.

Summer hours for Dairy Queen/Orange Julius are 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day.
