It was hard enough having Dick's on 45th heading to the University of Washington, but now there's another one in Edmonds on my commonly traveled Highway 99 that I need to try to avoid. I can live without their fries. For those I'll stick to McDonalds. But when it comes to a Dick's Deluxe or Dick's Special, it's the hamburger's tasty relish sauce's unique flavor that I often hunger for. My other craving is their Rocky Road Sundae with hot fudge. To avoid temptation, I resort to the freeway so I don't see Dick's.
What a cash cow Dick's is and remember, Dick's takes only cash, not credit cards and encourages you to give your change to charity. They pay their employees well over minimum wage also. Since Edmonds Dick's opened in 2011, I know the McDonald's nearby has had a slump in their business for their parking lot always has plenty of available space.
On the other hand, Dick's parking lot is almost always full of cars yet any line standing at their windows is served quickly. Let's face it, Dick's is a Seattle icon.
I'm addicted to Dick's and others are, too.
