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 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.

Great little place in Downtown Bothell to grab a burger, fries and milk shake and get that old style feel. It's a little crowded inside, smallish booths, and sometimes it's packed. But the food is yummy and my kids love it whenever we go. The prices are slightly high, but not over the top.
