great for what they are. – where else can you get cheap, fresh hot burgers and a pretty decent chocolate shake at 1:55am.
....that's what i thought.
Best Root beer Floats! – This place is the perfect place to go past midnight if you are still have the munchies. It has the best root beer floats! You get a hunk of fresh vanilla ice cream with bubbling root beer poured over the top. Prices are dirt cheap which makes it affordable for us poor college students. It generally seems to be a college late-night hangout with a speckling of the older crowd. I personally don't care for the French fries (I?m "too picky") but plenty of my friends scarf them down before the steam has time to roll off. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants a decent meal for cheap.
real food – dicks is not a gourmet burger place but it is a thousand times better than mcdonalds. the fries are an acquired taste. I hated them when i was a kid but love them now. i always get regular cheeseburger, fries and a coke. If you like to chew ice, their ice is the best - it's small and easily chewed - tastes great with a sip of coke. I also like how they have good benefits and pay for their employee's education.
Eh..wasn't impressed – Everyone says that Dick's is so good. However, I wasn't very impressed. The hamburger was pretty average and the fries were terrible. The milkshake that I had was pretty good. Also this Dick's is in a kinda sketchy location around the U. My roommate said that their Deluxe burger is really good..maybe I should have tried that...but I wasn't impressed when I went.
Avoid weekend nights – This place makes me feel like I'm in high school again. Lots of people from the younger sect gathered around. The food is really not very good. In fact I'd rather get my cholesterol and fat from McDonalds or Burger King. Sorry, but I wasn't that impressed....
Great for those late nights, avoid when sober – If I've been knocking back some cold ones, a Dix's Deluxe is like a flacor exposion in my mouth. Unfortunately, don't expect the same effect if you're sober but do have a milk shake. Perfect consistency between runny and frozen. I guess the value is good but I still find it hard to beat the evil golden arches in that department.
if only the fries werent so greasy! – They are so yummy but the fries are so loaded with grease that I can feel myself fit more snugly in my clothes. Not for Jenny craig or weight watchers members.
Yummy for my Tummy! – What is everyone talking about..........."The fries are too greasy!" Come on, if they aren't greasy they aren't fries! I absolutely love their fries, the best thing on the menu. Get them with tarter sauce, nothing better. I always get a deluxe and chocolate shake to go with. Yummy! Everytime we are in Seattle we make our way to 45th for the yummiest, greasiest fries in town.
Not even good when drunk! – Wendy's 99 cent menu has better food and is way cheaper. The burgers were small and flavorless, the fries were soggy, the milkshake was icy. Don't let the locals convince you to eat at Dicks
Vile, Nasty Food – I have lived in Seattle for 12 years, and have heard this place raved about enough to try it - twice. It was some of the worst food I have ever had - both times. I think the reason people like it is that it is tradition to like it. The only other explanation might be that people who like it have never eaten anywhere decent, so they don't know what good food is. I am sure that compared to a burger made in England or Peru it probably does taste good. Neither of those places are known for their hamburgers, or for that matter, good food in general. The hamburgers at this place are griselly and bland. The fries are soggy and limp. There ARE much better places to eat a hamburger in and around Seattle (Burger Master Drive-In is one example). I personally wish people would quit being so loyal and "traditional" -- If that's the city's best burger, I'm embarrassed for Seattle.
