As an old Bothellite this our go-to place for old time burgers and milkshakes. Been here since the 50's and so have they.

the service was friendly and the food was served in a very reasonable time. This is not fast food. Our burgers were cooked to order and put together to our requests. The milkshake, a lunch treat for sure, was excellent. Very thick with lots of flavor varieties. If we are in the area and need a burger fix we will... More

A community icon, Ranch Drive in has been serving Bothell burger lovers with delicious, unpretentious burgers and the like since before i moved here 20 years ago. Even with a crowd they are always quick and provide good value for your money. If you like simple, good burgers, fries and shakes then this is the place to go.

If you are on the eastside and need a burger fix - there is NO better place than the Ranch Drive In just off the highway 522 in downtown Bothell. While the prices may not seem the cheapest -- considering the size of the burger and the quality, its an exceptional deal. Don't forget your vegetable - the onion rings.... More

I've been taking my family to Ranch Drive In since 1993, but our most recent visit will be our last. My wife and I both ordered chicken strips and chips. The chicken was not fully cooked, actually raw in the center. When we complained to the staff, they offered us a replacement. We didn't want to eat undercooked chicken, so... More

I've been going to the Ranch Drive-In since I was a kid and it's definitely gone down hill over the years. This afternoon I ordered a bacon ranch burger with cheddar and onions along with a chocolate milkshake. Now the chocolate milkshake was pretty good but how do you mess up a milkshake? That's kind of hard to do. Anyway,... More

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!
