Tried the double cheeseburger, fries and a marshmallow shake. The fries and shake were delicious. The burger was nothing special. Nice staff and really quick service especially at lunch hour. They were busy but it goes fast.

I've finally found a decent burger place in the greater Tacoma area! Pick Quick requires you to stand in a line outside to order (you can call ahead). They take cash only. They have a large outside seating area with many picnic tables. I ordered a double cheese burger (1/4 pound total) and a lime shake. I was surprised at... More

The milkshake was fantastic. The burgers were just average. You get a lot of fries per order - we probably should have just ordered one for the two of us.

We have stopped here a couple of times for ice cream and have been by pleased both times. The place is real not retro and is a must do in the Tacoma/Fife area. Treat yourself after you lose at the nearby casino.

It's quaint, the lady at the front was nice and the malt was stellar. The positives stop there. The burger was uninspired. .. very small and the bun was dry. I found the fries very greasy and, shockingly, I didn't even finish what was a moderate portion. The place clearly has a loyal following. .. the line was long at... More

Excellent burger the best I have eaten since my relocation to the Seattle area. The shakes are made with real milk I watched him pour it into the machine. The fries were excellent as well. Two thumbs up!!!

I just drove by and they are doing some reconstruction. Will open again on 1 February 2016. Be sure to check this place out then. Very good burgers. Expect long lines during lunch hour.
