Dick’s is a classic restaurant in the Seattle area. I can’t remember when I first ate there, but it was a long time ago. When I was in my late teens, my friends and I would go there and order 3 Dick’s Deluxe burgers and a shake each.
Whenever I get back to town, I try to visit one of the Dick’s Drive In locations. There are five of them:
Wallingford, 111 N.E. 45th St. 2
Capitol Hill, 115 Broadway Ave. East 3
Ballard, 9208 Holman Road N.W. 4
Lake City, 12325 30th Ave. N.E. 5
Queen Ann, 500 Queen Anne Ave. N.
Today my wife and I visited the Wallingford area. I am not as young as I used to be, so I only ordered two of the Dick’s Deluxe burgers, and of course a chocolate shake. The burgers tasted slightly different than I remembered, but were still very good. The shakes are great.
If you are ever in the Seattle area and looking for someplace quick to eat, check out any the Dick’s Drive In locations.
