Dick's Drive-In Restaurant

111 N.E. 45th St.
Seattle, WA, 98105, United States
TEL: (206) 632-5125

Dick's Drive-In, founded in 1954, is Seattle’s oldest, continuously operating fast-food restaurant, and the burgers, fresh-cut fries, hand-whipped shakes, and hot fudge sundaes still follow the original recipes. The local chain grew to five (the original is in Wallingford, and there are also Broadway and Queen Anne locations), but the menu wasn't updated until 1971, when two new burgers were added: Dick's Special with lettuce, mayonnaise, and pickles, and Dick's Deluxe, a quarter-pound burger with cheese. Dick's also dropped orange soda and added Diet Coke. Prompt service and affordable prices have kept the restaurants a Seattle staple. Don't even think about a credit card—Dick's accepts cash only.

Insider Tip:

Dick's doesn't serve alcohol, but their rootbeer floats are made with hand-dipped ice cream, just like their legendary shakes.
