Good, fast and hot. Not much more you can ask for! Staff is always great no matter how obnoxious people are to them.

We were told Dick's is the best hamburger joint when considering fast food. We arrived and even after lunch, the place was packed. When it was time to order, my son couldn't order just a plain cheeseburger...it had to come with toppings. We sat down and had a burger that McDonald's could beat...the burgers had no flavor for advertising fresh... More

Gotta tell ya, Me and my buddies back in the late 60's build Dicks Drive In. Fri and Sat nights you could not squeeze a smart car into the lot nonetheless a sweet 54 chev 2door post. This place was THE PLACE TO GO...you could visit with your friends, meet new guy/gals from other schools, occasionally get into a rumble...or... More

The Capitol Hill location is a must-do. True Seattle residents crowd the lines and a man with a voice like Bob Dylan strums a guitar while you wait - at least when we went. The food is crazy cheap and really good, especially the shakes and fries and Dick's Special burger. We walked there and guess what? It's a true... More

Looking for a place to eat on a budget or late nights? Dicks is an awesome old fashioned take out burger joint to go to. Love the old fashioned milkshakes, as I am one who is very picky when it comes to old fashioned shakes, but this place makes one of the best ones. Also the burgers are delicious and... More

I had to give it a 3 because I didn't feel like the burgers were better than my hometown burger joints. The fries were a little soggy. The "medium" drinks are what would be a 'small' size anywhere else. However the milkshake was delicious! My husband on the other hand got 2 cheeseburgers and devoured his whole meal and was... More

I love this place and have been coming here for years when in downtown Seattle. Dick's 1/4 Lb Deluxe cheese burger is great. They even have live entertainment- there is always at least one homeless person playing a guitar on the sidewalk for food or change every time I go here. The burgers are really good except that you have... More

Dick's Drive-In is a Seattle institution, providing three burger options, fries and shakes. While these aren't gourmet burgers, they are tasty and are good quality. Not only that, they pay their employees above minimum wage and give back to the community. While it is cash only now, they are accepting cards September 2016!

So this is a long standing seattle favorite , being a visitor and exhausted from walking the uphill battle in Seattle and getting back to our hotel at 1130 it was close and open so that fit the bill , inadvertently I asked for the Dick's deluxe which is a good way to get in trouble there , but it...

I came to visit my cousin who have lived most of their lives. I wanted to experience the real Seattle and while they took me to the fish market and I ate my weight in Salmon, I also had the opportunity to do a late night stop at Dick's which is arguably the best burger I have had in a... More
