Dicks has been a tradition in Seattle forever, real ice cream shakes, excellent FF, and in days gone by, and for a time after, the burgers were 19¢, believe it. Much has changed, it all cost more, but it still tastes the same.

Sorry but as I lay groaning after eating my first and last burger from Dick's... Pardon me I had to burp... Yes a Seattle institution but why? Inexpensive sure but you get what you pay for...oops another belch! The fries were greasy and limp. With all the great burgers available in town go elsewhere.

Anyone who gives this place a bad review needs there head examined. They make the burgers old fashion style. I had strawberry milkshake very good. Ice cream fries and service all great. Best of all was the price three of us ate for under twenty bucks

Definitely an old school eatery. The food service was super fast. I didn't like that you can't order a personalized burger because they are made in advance. The food was super greasy. Recommended for the nostalgia.

You can't visit Seattle without stopping by Dicks. This is a mandatory stop for us on our way to UW football games to grab some grub for tailgating. Yes, it's greasy burgers and fries, but so simple and good. Our favorite is the Dicks Deluxe.

Dicks is one of those places with greasy burgers, fries with the skin left on and hand made milkshakes that even if it is not all that good for you, tastes fantastic and is oh so satisfying. This is a walk up and order only with no indoor seating and even though the crowds are almost always big, service is... More

I am a burger junkie. My wife calls me WIMPY!!! I absolutly oved the burgers there. Easy to order and the pickle tartar sauce was a delicious delight. I know, it doesn't sound great but believe me you will ove it when you try it. A must have when visiting Seattle.
