Just what you'd expect from a local burger joint

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... read more

The old Bothell landmark keeps it simple. Meals are cooked to order and it is not fast food. On a Saturday evening, our order of 2 burgers, fries and onion rings took at least 20 minutes to arrive. It was well worth the wait.

We were looking for a burger place that wasn't fast food. This was exactly what we wanted! The burgers were big and delicious. Everything was so fresh. The onion rings are awesome.The staff was wonderful - they actually write done your order and know how to make change. This is a quaint place and may not look like much from... 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
