“Great spot off the Highway!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

This is a great spot to enjoy drive-in food right off of I-5 in Fife. It is especially great on nice days, or at least days where it isn't raining because of the great picnic area. The food is delicious and well-prepared, the prices are right and it's a town favorite. It's worth a stop!

“When in Tacoma”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2010

Do what the natives do, and if you can't get to the Frisko Freeze come here. I missed it on the last trip, but have relished their fresh banana shakes, greasy handcut fries and old school grilled burgers for decades. In the summer their little picnic park is nice, though it's not too useable on the average rainy day.

The people working there are not dwarves....they're standing on a floor which is several inches below grade. Someday the Pick Quick will probably disappear into the mud of the Tacoma tideflats. Better go today.

“Diners Drive-Ins and Dives needs to come here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2009

If you like In and Out Burgers - Pick Quick will make you happy. Here's a trick - call in your order because they make everything the old fashioned way - in batches. It can take a while .... but it's worth it. Sweet onion and a tomato that tastes like a tomato top their burgers. Perfectly grilled bun. Fresh blackberry shakes can't be beat. Picnic tables on a beautifully manicured lawn and flowers make a great place to enjoy your food. Classic.

“Not a bad bigger and on...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2009

Not a bad bigger and on a nice day, fun place to sit outside. Staff could be a bit more friendly. I like their simple approach, burgers and pretty good ones too.
