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... read more

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.

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.

Burger wasnt gourmet, but it was decent. My favorite was the milkshake, and the simplicity of the menu. I tried to order no pickles and they don't do any special burger orders. That was kind of neat as well. Makes it easy when you order. Id go back if I was in Seattle again.

Terrific fries and burgers. Honest take-out food at good prices. Not fancy, but delicious. Would definitely return.

I have been here at least 200 times and the consistency is amazing. The perfect meal is a deluxe, fries, and a chocolate shake. You cannot live a good life until you have eaten here.

We stopped after visiting the Seattle Zoo with my daughter and her family. My grandson loves burgers and since he was excited about eating at Dick's, we thought it would be a good stop. The service at Dick's is fast and the reason is it is an assembly line operation. They do not accept any type of special orders, i.e.... More

Over stated Seattle land mark - employees are a bunch of a good cross section of typical seattle weirdoes .
