The Ranch Drive In has been here since my family moved here in 1964. It is a place you can always find consistent quality and speedy service. The menu never seems to change but they offer most everything folks would seem to want. The food served here is not fast food chain quality it is so much better. When you... More

When we walked in, all tables were full and no one was eating. This was a good sign because lots of customers means its good - but it might have been a bad sign because they were slow. We were pleasantly surprised to find the service quick and friendly and the burgers cooked to perfection. Toasted buns just MAKE a... More

The Ranch Drive In is a staple in Bothell. They have a delicious ranch burger with their special sauce. Their fries are always cooked perfectly. One of the only places you can walk into and order a Green River soda! I love the dipped ice cream cones. Their desserts are not to be missed!

A large variety of burger options.... singles doubles cheese bacon they got em. Always worth a stop. Not a lot of seating but still the food is worth the wait. Fries not overly greasy, burgers cooked through well, plenty of shake flavors. This is a bothell institution and been around forever and you will see why. Some of the best... More

The Ranch Drive-In is a small, locally owned burger joint that offers a variety of menu options including grilled chicken sandwiches, shakes as well as soft serve ice cream. There is indoor and outdoor seating with a walk-up window outside. I knew this place had to be good because when I arrived the parking lot was busy and seating was... More

The Ranch Drive In in Bothell, Wa. was a good memory from my younger days. When I went to the Pacific Northwest last month, I decided to see if it was still in business...Yes it is! With limited inside seating, many people use the walk-up window and order to go or to eat in their autos. The quality of the... More

We stopped by on a rainy Tuesday night and there was still an impressive line to the counter. But we were able to get a table for four and the place quieted down after 6:30pm. Service was efficient and brisk, but not unfriendly. We liked the carved wooden signs in the dining area and the rustic touches on the walls.... More

Talk about a good hamburger! We've had everything from shakes, fish & chips, corn dogs and fries here, and everything is always top notch! A little pricey, but your tummy will be happy you spent the little extra to make it feel so good!

Even with all of the other burger joints in and around, The Ranch continually serves great burger fare. Once the weather starts to get sunny, it is standing room only on the weekends. The staff is always friendly and the food made to order. A recommendation for anyone that wants a break from the "routine" burger places.
