Dick’s Drive-In is an institution in Seattle. There are several locations, are open late, serve burgers, and are very easy on your wallet! Since we were staying in Capitol Hill, there was conveniently one close by. They’ve got a short four item burger menu with shakes, ice cream, and drinks. The main staples on their burger menu are the Dick’s Deluxe and the Dick’s Special. Both have shredded lettuce, mayo, and a chopped pickle. The difference is that the Deluxe has two 1/4 lb. patties (fresh, not frozen) and yellow American cheese, while the Special has a single, cheeseless patty.
I went with a Dick’s Deluxe and an order of fries. It’s nothing fancy, but it was a tasty, fast food style burger. The housecut shoestring fries are definitely worth getting, too.
The Deluxe costs you $2.70 and the fries are $1.50. Not bad at all. A much better choice than a late night McDonald’s burger, if you ask me.
