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.

If you are anywhere near, stop in and get a burger. They are made fresh, and the fries are really tastee. They now take debit and credit, so that's a major plus!

Have been to Dick's often and it is usually late at night when we want something that is not McDonald's. Simple menu, low prices and never been disappointed. Nothing great here, but of the half dozen or so times I have been I have never been unhappy. An icon in the Seattle area for sure and when you keep it... More

There are several around town, we ate at this one near the University. It may be the original from the 1950's. This is wonderful drive-in type food, that as a teen-ager you would burn off and as an adult, goes right to your waist. No Tables, sit on your tailgate or on the curb near your ride, have a burger,... More

We went to Dickʻs on the way to the Wooldand Park Zoo. Since there are no Dickʻs Drive In where I live, this was a totally new experience for me. One thing that struck me as I drove in to the parking lot was...there are no places to sit after you get your food. We then figured by the looks... More

I'm a big fan of Eating Local when vacationing, so I had to try Dicks. Their menu is simple -- and they don't customize at all -- but it's quick and affordable, and the FRIES are they way fries are supposed to be. The burgers were good, but the shakes & ice cream are REAL, and really good. No where... More

We grabbed a burger, fires, and a shake to have lunch at the Gas Works Park which is within a few blocks. Food was cheap, hot and fast. Good for a quick lunch at the park. There is no indoor seating that I saw, so you need to grab and go.
