Dick's Drive-In Restaurant Review

: Dick's Drive-In’s simple burgers and famous fries taste best at 2 a.m., which is why the line is always longest late at night. High school kids stopping by post-prom and adults on after-bar burger runs have kept this Seattle mainstay going strong for more than 50 years. The basic burgers arrive with ketchup, mustard and pickles, and the milkshakes are silky-smooth. This is Dick’s original location, and its large parking lot and walk-up windows continue to serve the Wallingford neighborhood and beyond. At lunch, the work crew crowd dominates.
