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.

The Ranch still has the best burgers in Bothell, even with Red Robin and 5 Guys now in town!

Ranch has been there forever, and hopefully always will be. Unpretentious, but doesn't need to be. Great burgers, fries and huge shake menu. Looks the same as it probably did 40 years ago, but so what? Nice kids, good service. Do not skip a shake!
