CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP! GOOD GOOD GOOD! The burgers taste like they're homemade! They're firm and griddled well, not like the pasty commercial patties you get at drive thru's. Fries are soft, but tasty, and don't think about sharing - you'll regret it! Seating is always available - in your car! Otherwise, it's standing room only in the great concrete outdoors.

A great place to grab food on go if your looking for burger fries and a drink. Do bring your handi wipes though, greasy burger and fries are the norm in a brown dripping bag. If your looking for choices in the menu though dont bother stopping. There is no dine in but there are tables outside during decent weather. Like I said, for Fast Cheap Burger Joint its a great place to grab and go.

I have always enjoyed going to this establishment...One of my largest regrets about moving away from Seattle is that I miss their food. Those of you who think that the food is bad, I respect your opinion, but I really disagree. As far as fast food goes, Richard's (can't use the real name..won't let me) knocks McDonalds, Wendy's, BK, etc. out of the water.
What I appreciate most about this restaurant, however, is how well they treat their employees. I tried to work there when I was in college and couldn't get hired...they are very selective. Some of their employee benefits include:
Paid community service
Paid health care
$8.75 to start per hour
Try that at McDonalds. They put their employees over profit...an admirable trait.

Okay, I used to live in Seattle and for nearly 30 years i went to this fave burger shop whenever I could. The burgers are like the burgers I had as a kid...REAL. Greasy. Stick to your ribs stuff, not these designer burgers that the annoying health conscious people think they need. The prices have always been low here, the I have never been disappointed. Cheeseburger, fires, chcolate shake and I am in heaven. Nostalgia? Of course! Who needs a $7.00 designer burger (or anything else from California)??? This is a Seattle place. With all the changes, it is still there, orange and low-tech, completely non-trendy. This is the real stuff! Too bad the censoring thingie won't let me type the name of it!!!

If you don't like it, PLEASE go back to California, eat at In and Out, Fatburgers, whatever. And take your pollution, and developers, with you. I'm not in the least bit nostalgic for Dicks - have lived here all my life and have no reason to be nostalgic. I've tried the places in California, and frankly you can keep them there.

I just went to Dicks after 2 yrs and the burger was nasty!! nothing like i remembered it...the burger I got was cold and hard dispite the 10 min wait in line....the least they could do is make it fresh. Went to California in the winter and I have to say...the burgers from In-N-Out are no comparison!! If I am ever in the area again, I would rather go to the Jack in the Box across the street...at least they will guarantee my food to be warm.

I understand every gets nostalgic for the burger place they grew up with, but come on! Hasn't anyone travelled outside of Seattle and had a decent burger? Everyone who thinks Dick's is the best should take a road trip down to California and try In 'N Out. I promise you you won't think so highly of your beloved Dick's after that.

Having grown up in LA, having eaten Tommy's and In-N-Out burgers all my life... I couldn't wait until the next time I was in Seattle to try a Dicks cheeseburger and fries. I should have read the reviews and figured out that everyone here who left a positive posts was due to nostalgia, not because it actually tasted good. In all honesty, their cheeseburger was the nastiest I had ever eaten, no better than the 7-11 burgers. Who the hell puts tartar sauce on a burger, tartar sauce goes with fish nicely, but not on a super thin pattied burger with lousy tasting cheese and a greasy bun. The fries were over rated as well, limp and oversalted so much that I was thirsty for the rest of the night. Too bad Seattle doesn't have In-N-Out so they could taste what good tasting burgers are suppose to taste like

....Maybe the worst burger I've ever eaten........EVER!!! I don't understand the high ratings.
If it's late at night, and you've had too much too drink, and no safe mode of transportation to get to anywhere else, and Dick's is in walking distance, and you don't mind eating sub-par food....then go to Dick's.
If you are from California, and a frequent diner at In and Out........AVOID DICK'S LIKE THE PLAGUE.
Everything about the burger tasted too sweet--as if too much sugar was added to every recipe from the buns to the condiments; it was way too chewy, it's was just slopped together with what seemed like an entire jar of mayo. I don't remeber my burger having onions.
You can get a better burger with fresher ingredients, AND onions for a few nickles more by ordering a Jumbo Jack from JITB across the street.

If you aren't afraid of a little (or a lot of) grease, their fries are some of the best in Seattle. Also, their Dick's Special Hamburger is cheap and tasty - their special sauce is so good! It's hard to stop their, though, when they have really good shakes in a variety of flavors for only $1.30 more. For fast American food they are much tastier than McDonald's, cheaper and you're supporting a local business that has demonstrated exceptional ethics throughout their history in the Seattle area.
Even during the thirteen years that I was allegedly vegetarian, Dick's was one of those late night guilty pleasures that would break my dietary commitments. One hamburger never killed anything, right? Right? Ok, fine, besides a cow. Yum!

There is nothing like Dick's for a hometown burger, Coca-Cola, and fries. This steadfast burger joint has the same great burgers, charming appearance and great service that it had the day they opened up decades ago. A visit at any Seattle area Dick's location is a genuine treat, but there's an intangible special something that gives the Broadway location the edge, even as the neighborhood slowly socially deteriorates. I no longer live in the Seattle area, but Dick's on Broadway is a ""must-stop"" in my frequent visits to Seattle. Now married, with children, Dick's can now add three avid fans to their list.

The best locally owned fast food place in the city of Seattle. Celebrating 50 years in business it has outlasted others with there fresh cut french fries (the skin is on them), thick old fashioned milkshakes, and tasty burgers at low prices. A simple menu thats easy to order from and not like the rocket science the giant fast food places have. The owners are great to thier employees and great to the community. To bad the Queen Anne loacation is the only sit down place.
