How can you not like Dicks? The burgers are really good and REALLY cheap. For me it is the fries. I love watching the cut the potatoes and cook them fresh ?? not frozen.

Be smart like a native and don't try to order anything special here. You get what's on the menu. They've been doing their burgers that way for a lot of years, and after you try one you won't mind at all. I still shutter to think of the first time I ever ate at Dick's and naively asked them to hold the ketchup or something.. I still bear the shame so don't YOU do it too.

This was in about 1998, so hopefully things are better these days. However, the place is always great if you are hungry late at night and don't have much cash to spare.

Cons: Found hair the the fries and bones in the burger

Everytime we are in the neighborhood, we go to Dick's for their burgers. They are really good. The make the best milkshakes too. You really need to stop in and eat here. The staff is friendly, the fries are greasy and good, and the burgers are great. I highly recommend stopping here.

Dick's has the best fries anywhere in Seattle and their Deluxe is to die for. Not only that, you can get a hefty ice cream cone for less than two dollars! You wonder why you sometimes see a long line... it's WORTH IT!

This place (the site finds the name "inappropriate"!) is simple and reliable. The menu has evolved only slightly since I began eating cheeseburgers and fries at the 45th St location in 1965. My last few visits (I live in Yakima now) have been at the 30th Ave site. It's quick, and cheap. The crewmembers still take orders without writing them down. My son and I enjoy their fresh-cut fries, but my wife finds them soggy and greasy. In the dark ages we had to order and pay for the fries at a seperate window--something about dedicating one specific employee to take charge and protect the integrity of the fries. Thankfully, they stopped that practice a long time ago. Another reviewer mentioned the nostalgia of the place. That still draws me in. Would I say the food is great? No, not really, but I like it. I never cared much for their Deluxe burger, but I still buy a couple of cheeseburgers and maybe two orders of fries on those rare times I visit. I could probably list myriad places that serve a fancier burger, or maybe just a better burger, but I've never been disappointed at any of this small chain's outlets. I can't say that for many other places I've visited. I still enjoy going there, even if my wife complains.

Pros: all around yummy

Great place to grab a bite to eat whenever you have the urge for a sloppy burger made with tartar sauce or freshly sliced fries. Always a good night time drop by after a heavy night of partying. Never pass up on getting the whole meal deal of a delux burger, french fries and your choice of chocolate, vanilla or strawberry shake all for under $6. Cheap, great taste, good service, open really late.

Pros: Fast food at quality service, cheap, open late

Cons: Eating in your car or outside in the cold

So it's definitely not as good as California's In-and-Out but there's something fun about getting a simple burger and fries for a buck or two and eating it standing outside the drive in. The service is pretty quick and the food definitely satisfies a grease craving.

What the devil is the fascination with the food in this place? Ok, so people feel nostalgic over this famous Seattle institution, thats fine, but as far as Dicks serving the best fast food here, i couldn't disagree more. Whats even more puzzling is that some here are even comparing or worse yet, elevating Dicks above In n out.

Prison-grade tripe is right. I wouldn't serve this "food" to my worst enemy. I can not believe that Dick's has become as popular as it has in Seattle. Don't you people care what you put into your bodies? Tradition needs to go out the window on this place. Let's give it up and let it become an empty lot.
