The hamburgers are large and flavorful. My favoriteitem, though, is their chocolate peanut butter shake. Mm mm, Good!

Dexter's has been here for years with various owners. The food & service goes up and down. Right now the owners seem to be doing it right. I liked the Double Dexter hamburger. A good juicy, tasty sandwich for $6. It's not really a drive in though. You park in the strip mall parking lot and can either order at... More

How does this place stay in business ??? I regret to say that I was not shocked when I found a large pubic hair in my burger. This place needs a visit from the health department immediately .

This place has really gone downhill . The food was awful, I mean how do you screw up burgers and fries. You can tell everything was made cheaply and had no care put into it. Inside is disgusting. Seriously I have no idea how this place is still open.

Nice place to stop for a really good burger and triple thick shakes. Worth the drive and great place to pick up food before going to a Tides or Seahawks football game. Roll Tides!

How this place remains open is a mystery. The food was horrible and the service was worse. Some dumpy little hole-in-the-wall places are gems, but this one is not.
