Will wonders ever cease? Dick's now takes credit cards! Only in the last year has the well-known and beloved local chain started accepting anything but cash. I'm just glad they still make burgers their way only - you can't "special order" a burger at Dick's. If you don't like something on a Dick's Deluxe, too bad!! The fries here are... More

I've been here several times over the years. They are always fast, but it was exciting to see you can now pay with card and not just cash.

Cashier opened a window so he could quickly take my order and I didn't have to wait in line at the only open window. The burgers, fries and chocolate shake were all good. They can buzz you into bathrooms. I am assuming they do this to keep the transients from taking over the bathrooms. That is appreciated.

Dicks Burgers is am amazing chain. All of the food there is good and it is incredibly inexpensive. Things I particularly enjoy about it is the low prices, good quality food, and generally short wait times. They also pay their employees well so it feels good to support them. They also take debet/credit cards now which is nice. Before, it... More

Dick's makes a great budget burger! Dick's makes a great 'fast food' burger! Dick's makes a great meal: Deluxe, fries, shake, extra tartar sauce thank you. Dick's does not make a gourmet burger with freshly cut lettuce, tomatoes, sliced pickles and Foie gras. It's a simple affair with a unique taste. You like them or you don't but you absolutely...

It may just be a nostalgia thing for this local Seattle boy, but every time I'm in town I stop at Dick's for two Cheeseburgers and a chocolate shake. I won't say it's something out-of-towners need to try, for they may like their hometown White Castle or In-&-Out better, but by keeping it simple, it is good value for money... More

We were in the area and were hungry. We saw the parking lot filled with cars which is always a good indication that it is a popular fast food place. We order ed burgers, fries and milk shakes and all satisfied our appetites. What we did not realize is that this is mostly a carry out place as there is... More

Who doesn't want a burger, fries and a drink for under $5? My boyfriend told me we had to go here, and I was not disappointed. Awesome little burgers for such an awesome price! Now we stop in whenever we visit.

we had Deluxe Hamburger, Special Hamburger, and Regular Hamburger, all just average, the french fries were disappointing in taste and not crisp at all.
