So we finally had a chance to try Dick’s Drive-In, one of Seattle’s iconic burger places that serves Mcdonald’s style burgers (but better) in terms of size. We found that a typical cheeseburger is usually not quite filling enough – they don’t do the 5 guys type burgers with everything on it- caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms, etc. Dick’s does burgers more simply, with just their special relish sauce/ketchup, pickles, and mustard.
We usually get their deluxe cheeseburger. Sometimes if Z is buying it back home I’ll fry two sunny side ups at home to put in the burger. The burgers are really small by any standard, which explains why we get the “fanciest” burger on their menu.
Their fries also come in a pretty minuscule packet, by my (asian) standards, I have no idea what americans do when they want to fill up. They are pretty good though, think they are made there with the skin on. At any other fast food outlet z and I usually only order one serving of fries to share because that’s more than enough, but we’ve started ordering 2 servings of fries here. Their “one-size-fits-all” fries are about the same size or smaller than the small fries at McDs.
I like this place. I like how everyone sits in the parking lots and eats. It’s such a weird tradition but so iconic.
