I have been going to Dick's since the 1980s. If you want honest American fast food, I don't think you can beat Dick's. Their shakes and fries beat the pants of the big chains.

Another Seattle Establishment...with good, quick and relatively cheap food. Service is good. Burgers are good, fries dipped in sauce - good. Yes, it is greasy - more so than other burger joints, but still good!

Dicks has been up the street from my home for 20 years. I go there for an ice cream cone but rarely for anything else. The food is very predictable - NOT GREAT - and they keep raising prices. The menu is extremely limited - no fish or chicken. You're better off going to Wendy's or McD. They charge you extra for ketchup! What a ripoff!

I was visiting Seattle recently and Dick's was right across from my hotel. I can't tell you how good the food is! Nothing fancy but good and cheap!!! Now that I'm back home I find myself wishing for a Dick's cheeseburger at least once a week!!! Every town needs a Dick's!!!

Can't explain the sensation. I buy 10 or more of them at a time, throw then in the freezer and eat one at a time. Not as tasty and fresh as right off the grill but still good. Initially I didn't know what makes then so popular but after few visits you will get addicted. This is what I call the Nazi burger (you will know what I mean if you saw a Nazi soup episode of Seinfield show) Don't even think about using credit card or customize the burger way you like it. Light salt on the fries? Forget it. If you are on a diet don't even think about. Also when you are in the line, study the manu and get the money ready before it's your turn. You don't say "Uh.. I would like to" Just say 3 Deluxe, 1 fry and 2 mid sprite.

Although not the cheapest burger on the market anymore, with the 99cent whopper, jumbo jack, big'n'tasty, the Dick's Deluxe never fails to hit that spot in your gut. All the way down to picking the melted cheese and leftover lettuce of the wrapper. Lets dont forget the most guilt ridden fries today and the special 5 cent sauce we call tarter. Washed down with a Med Rootbeer and you are smiling all the way home. I cant drive by without stopping.

Four of Dick's Drive-IN's five locations are exactly what the name suggests - drive-ins. They aren't drive-thru's, because you have to exit your vehicle to order. They aren't traditional restaurants because you have to stand outside at a waist-high counter, and there are no seats to sit at.

Dick's is an institution in Seattle neighborhoods. I have never had a bad experience in the hundreds of times I have been there. When I had friend's visiting from Spain this past summer, they fell in love with Dick's chocolate shakes, we went there 3 nights in a row! When I think of Dick's, I think of fast food lacking the negative undertones of the term.

It is an institution and a place to take people for a bite of Seattle. It's only drowback is people who don't eat beef can't enjoy it.
Get a Dicks Delux, order of fries and a chocolate shake.

So I visit this Pacific Northwest institution called Dick's and find that the burgers are flat and the fries are greasy. I guess it's because Im not a big fan of burgers with ketchup as the primary condiment. When I asked for Mustard the staff member behind the counter repeated my request with condescending Mustard? as if I had asked for Pork Tartar in a synagogue. The other thing that turned me off was the place was filthy. Ok so I dont like ketchup only on my burgers but is that any reason to give up on soap and water? Dicks gave me the impression of a poor mans McDonalds without ambition. I can only conclude that People go to Dick's for the same reason people smoke cigarettes. Its an old habit thats hard to break.

Pros: The exit

Cons: everything else

Dick's burgers are really, bad, but they are only unsurpassed in badness by the fries. Limp, uncooked, greasy fires, yummmm. Burgers made of the worst cuts of meat, cooked into a hockey puck, surrounded by white bread and wilted lettuce. How did this place ever stay in business, when there are excellent places like Red Mill (that only chare about 50 cents more).

I still remember the years that I went to Sunday School in Seattle. (I lived about 50 miles away, so it was a big trip at that age) Every Sunday was puncuated with a well-anticipated trip to Dick's Drive-in. We would always order the little ice-cream cones and a burger. Every once in awhile, I still stop there just for old times sake, to have a burger and a cone. For a burger place to last a good 48 years or so, takes dedicated owners and consistant service, things that Dick's definately has. I would recommend this joint to everyone to try at least once.

It's really difficult to classify Dick's as a restaurant, since grease is their primary dish. Number one? Dick's is the last place I would consider to get a burger compared to everyting else that's around. What is Seattle's fascination with this place? Help me understand this mystery!

I have to agree with the rating for Dick's. I love that place and it's cheap (even if it is bad for me). Good burger, better root beer floats, and can't-be-beat fries with the skins on. Makes me want to go there right now.

Always there when you need it late at night, Dick's Drive-In provides the post-bar scene nourishment that anyone can appreciate. Ultra greasy burgers and fries that melt in your mouth when you eat them go perfect with their fine selection of chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla ice cream cones or shakes. Always an interesting crowd on hand, you will enjoy your burgers in the car where you may find paradise by the dashboard lights!

You like hamburgers? Too bad! You can't have a Dicks regular size hamburger - only a cheeseburger. No substitutions! You want a hamburger? You have to get one of their dinky little burgers. Absolutley NOT a HAMBURGER stand! Want a real hamburger? Go to Fat Burger, Burger Master (Bellevue), Red Robin, Whibleys, anywhere but here!

Dicks is probably the best, least expensive and most convenient burger place in Seattle. Burgers are tasty, esp. their Dick's Delux, featuring their "special sauce" and their perfectly greasy skin-on fries are the best - all for under $5! Plus they're open until late - the one near UW was a pre-and post-party hang-out spot for students.

Dick's Drive-In is awesome. Hand-dipped shakes, fresh-cut french fries and all-beef burgers. What can beat that? It can't be beat. Very cheap too. The best meal in town. Dick's gets my highest rating and I do love food! No substitutions so the line moves quickly. Who would want to substitute on perfection anyway? I love Dick's Drive-in - Seattle's BEST eating establishment!

"... just to spend my loose change, on a fist-size ice-cream cone at Dick's!"
- Presidents of the United States of America.

I was born in Edmonds, two of the three members of The Presidents were born in Bellevue, the third in Seattle. If Dick's was good enough to write a hit song about it should be good enough for you.

The burgers are small but you can't beat the taste to price ratio.

please people! Do I have to mention how gross this place is. Number one on the cheap eats, come on you get what you pay for crap. I understand why not one resturant from the international district (chinatown to some) hasn't been listed as cheap eats (I'll leave you to guess). Average same price as this burger joint will be found at almost any place in ID and the food will nurish you with about 1/4 of the fat content as this burger joint. Try a soup noodle dish with beef great for winter chill. Travel is as easy as a buss ride too. Try something different than burgers! Please it would comfort your mother that you are getting fed good food.
