Offbeat Seattle Attraction: Dick's

Queen Anne Dick'sMind out of the gutter! This is Seattle's (or at least my) favorite fast food chain. It is the oldest, continuously operating fast food restaurant. They give out scholarships to their full-time workers, are deeply rooted in the community, and serve delicious fries, sundaes shakes, and burgers (my favs in that order).

In short - we're fans. It is a must go anytime we're home. Thus, two days into our visit Stateside, there we were again.

Things to know
  • All Dick's burgers are made with 100% REAL beef, delivered fresh and never frozen
    Our locally made buns are delivered fresh each day
  • Cash only (ATMs usually on-site)
  • Menus here: Sundaes are better than shakes, especially chocolate ice cream & blackberry syrup. Get fries! Extra sauce like tartar are .25
  • Open 7 Days a week; 10:30 - 2:00
  • Though prices are reasonable now, when Dick's opened in 1954 Burger's were .19, fries were .11, and Shakes were .21. That makes a meal for about .50! Though no longer that cheap, it is exceedingly affordable.
