Dick’s Drive-In in West Seattle? Beloved burger chain taking votes again

(Photo by Christopher Boffoli)

When we saw via Twitter this morning that Dick’s Drive-In is taking votes again on where to add a new location, we thought it hadn’t been that long since their last vote. Checked our archives and … well, time flies. It’s been six and a half years! Anyway, this time they’re asking “east or south?” – with West Seattle included in the potential “south” spots. You can vote here.

(Back in 2010, north beat south, and Dick’s opened its Edmonds location a year later.)

    If I remember correctly at the time of the last opening they pretty much said the next location would be S. Seattle, as it should.  Unfortunately in the intervening years I stopped eating meat.  I’ll tell ya though…if I were to get some meat it would not be a fine steak …it would be a humble Dick’s cheesburger. 

    • SeattleSunburn March 6, 2017 (1:26 pm)

      YAY for you no longer eating meat! I’m happy to see non-meat eaters increasing in population in WS! Go us! Maybe in the same amount of time since the last Dicks’ survey we will have a new VEGAN restaurant! We DESPERATELY need that here on the peninsula.

      • Mr E March 6, 2017 (1:56 pm)

        We have Chaco Canyon Café across from Fire Station No. 32. 

        • SeattleSunburn March 6, 2017 (2:07 pm)

          Same, but MORE options would be awesome. 

      • E March 6, 2017 (4:25 pm)

        El chuppacabra has many fake meat options. 

  • North of Admiral March 6, 2017 (12:13 pm)

    Yes!!! While we have a lot of burgers around west seattle, Dick’s is the best ‘fast’ choice. I hope they pick west seattle. 

  • scottcollins March 6, 2017 (12:17 pm)

    Was literally about to pass this along in hopes of getting an article posted.  Vote soon, vote often.  Set up alternative emails to vote more often.  Tell your friends, tell your family.  Post it on Facebook.  Get people from other cities, other countries, other worlds to vote.

    Seriously people.  Dicks on the Eastside?   

    • momof3boys March 7, 2017 (9:35 am)

      Me too scottcollins  me too!!  

  • Flip Washington March 6, 2017 (12:19 pm)

    The South/West has Zippy’s and that’s all we’ll ever need.

    • Ex-Westwood Resident March 6, 2017 (12:41 pm)

      Although I LOVE Zippy’s, I can get  a Dick’s Deluxe, Cheeseburger, Fries and Milk Shake for the price of one Zippy’s burger.

      • East Coast Cynic March 6, 2017 (1:58 pm)

        Excellent point, and Dick’s gives it to you quicker.  I also like Dick’s greasy fries over what appears to taste like frozen fries at Zippys (please correct me if I am wrong cause I dig your burgers.)

  • sw March 6, 2017 (12:21 pm)

    Having a hard time envisioning where one could fit in West Seattle.  All the spots that would have worked now have apartments built on them.  White Center or Burien are probably more likely for a Westside-centric location.

    • T.A. March 6, 2017 (12:34 pm)

      How about here?

      There’s also the empty pawn shop next to the Jiffy Lube on Alaska. 

      Westwood Village? 

      There’s several options…

  • j March 6, 2017 (12:25 pm)

    Can’t wait!

    So tired of West Seattle being Dickless

    • John March 6, 2017 (12:44 pm)

      @J…..   I don’t know how to respond to ‘Dickless’.

      • JanS March 6, 2017 (2:29 pm)

        hehe

      • triple J March 6, 2017 (3:11 pm)

        Thats right this area has no Dick’s

        Channel Bill Murry in Ghost Busters when you say it:-)

    • Alki Resident March 6, 2017 (1:14 pm)

      You’re telling me😜

  • William March 6, 2017 (12:26 pm)

    Glad to see a better security on the voting this time.  Last time, a student at Shorewood High School wrote a program that voted multiple times -swinging the vote to the north.

  • T.A. March 6, 2017 (12:31 pm)

    YES! 

    Let’s have more successful, local businesses move to West Seattle which have a history and a built in base so they won’t be closing in a few months. 

  • Swede. March 6, 2017 (12:31 pm)

    Like stated by several others, we have plenty of good burger choices in WS already. And I for one don’t want to support people that try to force ‘inteligent design’ into public schools, so no Dick’s for me. 

    http://www.discovery.org/p/69

    (James Spady is the owner of Dick’s, just to be clear.)

    • West Seattle since 1979 March 6, 2017 (2:58 pm)

      Thanks — didn’t know that.        

    • John March 6, 2017 (3:29 pm)

      @Swede….  Yes that’s one of the many interesting beliefs out there.  I happen to like the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster myself.  I’m fine with it all as long as they don’t try and teach any of it at our schools.  Will his belief stop me from eating at Dick’s?….Probably not.  To each their own. 

      • Swede. March 7, 2017 (10:12 am)

        The spagetti monster I can get behind to, but not giving money to the discovery institute, which is what ultimately is happening when you buy Dick’s food. 

    • Frank March 23, 2017 (10:29 am)

      Some great responses!  For those of you, like myself, who admire Spady’s philosophy of helping support workers with a stipend for college AND his addicting, secret sauce that are tempted to vote “West Seattle” I would urge you to consider White Center or Burien instead given the overcrowding and street-channelization in WS that, despite citizen’s wishes, promises to only get worse.

  • Ex-Westwood Resident March 6, 2017 (12:34 pm)

    The old DQ location in WC would be PERFECT!!!

    A better location would had been where Wendy’s was at in WC, but alas, they built apartments there. 

  • sw March 6, 2017 (12:36 pm)

    Actually, there IS one spot that might work – where Jiffy Lube is on Alaska.  They’d need the entire lot, but you would probably be able to shoehorn a store in that space.  You definitely need room for parking and car traffic.  Would be good walking distance to all the new apartment dwellers in the Junction and Triangle.

  • Fakename70 March 6, 2017 (12:38 pm)

    When the geographical question is East v. West? West Seattle wins, hands down. Still having a hard time voting for anywhere in WEST Seattle as “south”. Especially considering Rainier Valley and Rainier Beach, specifically. 

  • Alice Anderson March 6, 2017 (12:40 pm)

    Yes! We’ll find the room for our favorite spot that we all want and is such a great quick stop.  Please!

  • ACG March 6, 2017 (12:42 pm)

    Six and a half years since the last vote?!?!  Man, it really only felt like a year or two. Some sort of wierd Dick’s time warp, I guess!!

  • Jerry Simmons March 6, 2017 (12:50 pm)

    YES!  Sounds like a good idea!

  • Dale Greenfeld March 6, 2017 (12:52 pm)

    Be overjoyed to have one closer. When you want one, you want one. I currently schlep to the U District for my fix.

  • Gina March 6, 2017 (12:58 pm)

    The closed Dairy Queen in White Center, and the one that closed in Normandy Park are two locations I can think of.  Or near Sealth, West Seattle or Kennedy.

    • WSB March 6, 2017 (1:07 pm)

      Sorry to say, the ex-DQ has a new owner & plan in place. Working on a story for our WC site.

  • West Seattle Hipster March 6, 2017 (1:10 pm)

    Do they have any gluten free options?

  • Kravitz March 6, 2017 (1:20 pm)

    This would be a dangerous thing for my waistline, but I would SO love having heavenly cheeseburgers and peppermint stick hot fudge sundaes in the hood. 

  • Roddy March 6, 2017 (1:34 pm)

    One of the two McDonalds would be perfect. Preferably the one 3 blocks from my house.

  • West Seattle Hipster March 6, 2017 (1:40 pm)

    If they come to WS, perhaps they can break the curse of the former Godfathers location in the Junction.

    .

    if they can’t, then it is time for an exorcism.

    • JanS March 6, 2017 (2:32 pm)

      no place for cars on the corner of Calif and Edmunds…Dicks is a drive up…remember that

      • West Seattle Hispter March 6, 2017 (3:14 pm)

         I do remember that the Dick’s on Queen Anne is not a drive through.  Let’s get one of those in West Seattle.

        • old timer March 6, 2017 (4:31 pm)

          There may not be a drive-thru at the Queen Anne Dick’s, but they do have a lot of parking.

  • Question Authority March 6, 2017 (2:15 pm)

    Anywhere but West Seattle please, they will have to raise the burger prices to pay the rent in what is becoming a soulless enclave. Come to Burien where people will actually enjoy the food rather than comment on it’s lack of vegan options and it’s impact on social welfare.  It’s just a burger, not another social justice warrior place to picket and cry.

    • B.W. March 7, 2017 (12:19 am)

      Haha so true

    • J242 March 7, 2017 (9:14 am)

      @Question Authority: “they will have to raise the burger prices to pay the rent in what is becoming a soulless enclave.”

      Funny, they didn’t have to raise prices for the FAR more expensive Queen Anne location. Sorry but your gripe ain’t got any traction.

      • Question Authority March 7, 2017 (10:07 am)

        They bought in at the Queen Anne location decades ago when prices were low, quite the change in WS real estate costs since then.  I see you at least agree like others with the soulless enclave description. 

        • Brian March 7, 2017 (11:16 am)

          People ask me “what part of town has SOUL?” and straight up every dang time I say “Why, it’s Burien!”

  • Raye March 6, 2017 (2:17 pm)

    Interesting article about the owner – thank you, Swede. Regardless, I tried Dick’s burger once and couldn’t get past one bite. It was gross. But my dog liked it. Oh, well, to each their own.

  • Joan March 6, 2017 (2:46 pm)

    I agree with Raye!! I tried one Dick’s burger years ago, because of the all hype. It was the most disgusting burger I’ve ever had. Truly a tasteless hockey puck. WHAT  is all the fuss about? Cheap does not equal good! Where I did have a great burger was at Luna  Park Cafe! And that was just a treat because I really don’t eat beef anymore either.

    • Sue H March 6, 2017 (7:15 pm)

      It’s not just you – I don’t get it either. Once was enough of a disappointment. That said, I voted for south since I know it’s important to my neighbors.

      • momof3boys March 7, 2017 (9:40 am)

        thank you Sue H.  Maybe it is my north-end childhood calling me – but a Dick’s burger is comfort food for so many.  We appreciate your vote  :-)

  • Space Dust March 6, 2017 (3:09 pm)

    Dick’s Cheeseburgers….

  • Pinks March 6, 2017 (3:29 pm)

    Dick’s burgers is way overrated. Redmill burgers are so much better. 

    • dawsonct March 7, 2017 (3:08 pm)

      Kinda comparing two different things here.
      True, Dick’s isn’t a top-quality burger. It is what it is, and sometimes you just want that cheap gut bomb. Those of us who grew up around here have developed the taste for them. In my travels around the country, I’ve found that just about every region has their version of Dick’s, serving a nothing special burger that evokes strong memories and loyalties that seem out of proportion to the true quality of the product. BFD.
      You aren’t required to purchase the product. Move along.

  • Craig March 6, 2017 (3:31 pm)

    I’m all for it.  I truly wish all these new people moving to West Seattle would eat…..

  • RS March 6, 2017 (4:05 pm)

    I really and truly love Dick’s, but seriously, we have no shortage of burger options in West Seattle!

    • Alki Resident March 6, 2017 (4:46 pm)

      We have no shortage of bars either but they keep coming.

    • dawsonct March 7, 2017 (3:10 pm)

      I’ve yet to reach the saturation point for options in my life.
      Too often these days we get “what are your options?”

  • waikikigirl March 6, 2017 (4:06 pm)

    @WS Hipster…you cracked me up “Exorcism”!!!! LOL!!!!!

    Dick’s  may not be the best burger in town but it’s just a good old fashion grease burger kind of like Dag’s Beefy Boys…remember those?!

  • Rick March 6, 2017 (4:24 pm)

     I hope they’ll at least be kid friendly.

  • Blake March 6, 2017 (4:34 pm)

    I vote for a dicks to go in the south side, Renton landing to be precise. They could feed move goers, shopers, and all three lunch shifts of workers across street at Boeing.

  • Guy Olson March 6, 2017 (4:48 pm)

    45 comments on this, zero on zoning fine print story.

  • WestSeattleCoug March 6, 2017 (5:15 pm)

    Dicks no.

    Kidd Valley yes.

    Enough said…

    • East Coast Cynic March 6, 2017 (9:30 pm)

      I like Kidd Valley too and when they make an offer to move South like Dick’s, I’ll support it.

      • Steve March 7, 2017 (9:04 am)

        Agreed!  I love Kidd Valley…they should go into the old Fatburger location on Alki!

        • J242 March 7, 2017 (9:17 am)

          @Steve: The Fatburger location is getting tirned into a po boy shop. I’ll take that over burgers any day of the week! We need some real po boys out here. Hunting down Jemil’s food truck on the few days I’m downtown is just not convenient and I’m not likely to special order my bread for the bi-weekly po boy cravings. lol

  • unknown March 6, 2017 (5:38 pm)

    @Rick…Dick’s serves cheeseburgers, fries, milkshakes and soda and you eat in your car or one of their outside tables, how is that not kid friendly?

    • Ric March 7, 2017 (3:34 pm)

      OK Sheldon. That WAS sarcasm.

  • West Seattle Hipster March 6, 2017 (5:50 pm)

     

  • Wimpy March 6, 2017 (7:54 pm)

    Put it in the former Fatburger location across from Alki Beach.

  • Space Dust March 6, 2017 (8:00 pm)

    West Seattle is not a good option for a Dick’s restaurant…

    They put them in a high volume location with lot’s of parking.  One place comes to mind…, Hwy167 and Grady way…Where the old Sound Ford used to be.  My guess is that over a 100k cars go by there everyday.

    Remember Dick’s is all about instant service, From the time you arrive to you leave is >15 minutes for most people. You could spend more time then that looking for a parking spot in the Junction.

    The Dick’s by the Seattle center is the only one with seating, the rest of them are eat in your car…

  • rob March 6, 2017 (8:52 pm)

    this whole vote thing is so dumb . you got to belive they have aready picked a location. This is a just a bunch of hype. I would bet  if you check the city permit office you will find out where they are building.

  • pjmanley March 6, 2017 (9:21 pm)

    Everyone just Shut Up and VOTE!  Edmonds beat us out last time.  And not even the good part of Edmonds!  And I grew up there and have to listen to my old friends boast about how THEY got a Dick’s and WS didn’t.  End this misery once and for all!  Vote WS!

    • Seaview March 8, 2017 (12:18 am)

      There’s a good part of Edmonds?

  • Jake from State Farm March 6, 2017 (10:21 pm)

    Can you believe that the first couple of comments are about a VEGAN restaurant? And then a question about gluten free?    IT”S A OLD TIME BURGER JOINT!  and yes your kids will love it… the ice cream cones…dipped in chocolate..and the real milk shakes….and the grease fries…..I’m getting hungry. 

    • SeattleSunburn March 7, 2017 (1:06 pm)

      Yaaaawwwwnnn. You’re not being judged for your lifestyle choice and no one is taking away your dead, chemically-laden flesh burgers and greasy GMO fries. There are others in WS who choose to live other lifestyles than you and have just as much right to comment and inquire. Many people of ALL ages, including kids, don’t hunger for the same things as you.

  • Morris March 6, 2017 (10:25 pm)

    I can’t explain why, but I love Dick’s and I go there quite frequently.

    Would love to see a Dick’s in the south end.

    I’d put it in the SODO area on first or fourth ave.

  • Trickycoolj March 6, 2017 (11:09 pm)

    I’d be ok with Georgetown.  McDonalds, Arby’s and Taco Time have all been shuttered in the 4th & East Marginal Triangle. Not a lot of 30 minute lunch options down there anymore. 

  • mary March 6, 2017 (11:31 pm)

    I would love to have dicks burgers in west Seattle. Would be nice to go to a burger joint get some nice greasy food without all the alcohol like all places do in west Seattle.

     be able to sit, relax and enjoy some good old time food, reasonable prices and no booze served.

     there are alot of older folks myself included that would live one in west Seattle mo. Here’s a thought. Quit building all the damn condos apartments put some good things. Fabric store. That’s an idea to Dicks burgers. Yay. No booze. I

    I will vote west Seattle gets one

    • Brian March 7, 2017 (11:17 am)

      Why do you care if a place serves alcohol? Just don’t buy it and you should be fine. 

  • JeffK March 7, 2017 (5:20 am)

    I’m not against Dick’s in WS.  However, Burger Boss is like a slightly upscale version with better food.

    • Ex-Westwood Resident March 7, 2017 (7:03 am)

      Again…

      Dub ‘C’ – $5.29

      Fries – $2.19

      Shake (sm) – $3.29

      Total = $10.77. At Burger Boss

      Dick’s Deluxe – $3.10

      Fries – $1.75

      Shake – $2.50

      Total – $7.35. At Dick’s

      Again…if I’m low on funds and/or in a hurry Dick’s is the place to go. 

  • anonyme March 7, 2017 (6:37 am)

    Dicks on lower Queen Anne has little parking, and very few customers drive there.  I don’t think parking is a make or break issue, depending on where in West Seattle it’s located.   Both Delridge and 35th & Roxbury are under served in terms of restaurants.   Somewhere on California, other than the Junction?  My personal preference would be Dick’s on 35th instead of the damn charter school…

  • Ex-Westwood Resident March 7, 2017 (7:09 am)

    South????

    How about the old Bull Pen tavern that burnt down in SeaTac on 200th and Pac Hway??? 

  • sc March 7, 2017 (8:23 am)

    I grew up in Greenwood in the 1960’s and my dad would take us to Dick’s on Holman Road. Hamburgers were 19 cents and cheese burgers were 25 cents.  

    I would love to have a Dick’s somewhere in the south end.

    And Mary I also miss not having a fabric store and having to drive to Joann’s at Southcenter! 

  • Jaylaw March 7, 2017 (8:26 am)

    Oh Lord…

    Vegan?

    Gluten Free?

    Rant…

    SMH, what is wrong with some of you?  It’s a meat place!  Bejesus, the word Hambuger has the word ‘HAM’ in its title!  You want Vegan and/or Gluten free, go start your own Tofurky take out.  Let the rest of us carnivores free to eat greasy and crappy cheap meat.  

    Kid Friendly?  I am going to guess that comment was tongue in cheek!  Nicely played!

    Complain about too many burger joints already in W Seattle?  Were you the ones also complaining when Chipotle came to the Junction despite 3 Mexican restaurants already on the block?  Hmmm, place looks packed to me now.  How about the 3 sushi bars on California?  

    Personally, I think there are already too many Dicks in W Seattle but what do I know?

  • Steve March 7, 2017 (9:02 am)

    Have any of you been to the Dick’s on Broadway later at night?  Swing by on a Saturday night after 10pm…It’s a gathering place for people looking for trouble.  Please don’t bring that to West Seattle….I vote no.

    • dawsonct March 7, 2017 (3:17 pm)

      You believe the Dick’s on Broadway to be the source of that “trouble”?

  • Todd March 7, 2017 (9:11 am)

    It’s Dicks. It cheap, easy and fast. It’s the go-to on Capital Hill when last call is near. It’s not fancy, it’s not a sit-down place and it’s not pretending to be anything else. When you need Dick’s, you need it – plain and simple.  That being said, I think they missed the opportunity in WS proper. I do think that the (now empty) Arby’s location in GT would be perfect!

    • Question Authority March 7, 2017 (10:44 am)

      Even as an Arby’s it was constantly busy as the location is prime, it closed only because the landlord refused to make needed improvements sought by the franchise.  That location although not neighborhood like would see thousands drive by and who wants to live next to the exhaust fan of a burger joint 24/7 anyway.

    • Ex-Westwood Resident March 7, 2017 (3:16 pm)

      IIRC, didn’t that location used to the same location of Dag’s?

  • Salal March 7, 2017 (10:12 am)

     No thanks

  • Jaylaw March 7, 2017 (10:23 am)

    @WS Hipster.  That was funny. 

    One last rant…

    What is it with trying to call out a business owner’s political or religious viewpoint?  

    I see many Keyboard Social Justice Warriors on here were all for kids walking out of school in the middle of the day to protest the results of a democratically elected president they didn’t agree with or teachers and students wearing tee-shirts that promote organizations whose leaders have called for the outright murder of law enforcement officers.  Or even businesses closing for a day to support Immigrants.  When this happens you merely say they are exercising their Rights;  Right to Freedom of Speech, Right to Peaceably Assemble, Right to Petition the government, etc…and you know what, I am with you!  I spent 12 years in the Corps supporting and defending these rights.  

    But a business owner has a political or religious view point that is counter to yours and all of the sudden it’s, “let’s boycott that business!”  Or, “hey, look at this moron!”  Where is your support of THEIR 1st Amendment Rights?  You don’t want to eat there, fine.  But please stop with all this SJW nonsense.   Some people just live differently than you and as long as the way they live their lives and express their opinions/beliefs is not illegal they shouldn’t be ostracized from making a living.  Do you go about searching for every business owner’s background before you decide to buy or patronize?  If so, your life must be exhausting.  Please come outside and enjoy the view away from your mommy’s basement.

    We’ve all become too damn sensitive and have this faux-moral outrage anytime someone has a thought or opinion counter to ours.  This is America.  Don’t like the business due to food, product, customer service, don’t go there.  Just stop with all this lazy shaming already.  The market will dictate whether they survive or not.  

    Some of you remind me of that line from Animal Farm.  “All Animals are equal…but some are more equal than others!”

    Now get out of my way, I’m off to a meeting with Ed Murray and Kshama Sawant to see about how many homeless we can move from Myers Way and fit in their back yards on Capital Hill and Leschi.  What, no homeless camps there?  Hmm, you don’t say…

    • West Seattle Hipster March 7, 2017 (11:39 am)

      Hear, hear!

      I also hope people that criticize Dicks do some research on how well they treat their employees.  They have historically paid their employees much higher than the industry standard, and from what I have heard treat them better as well.

    • JanS March 7, 2017 (1:09 pm)

      jaylaw…it is the owner’s “right” to  lean whichever way they want politically…and it is the consumer’s right to not support that(part of letting the market “dictate”). I refuse, for instance , to give Gerry Kingen (Salty’s, etc) any of my money…after he drove his truck around Seattle, or parked it at his Alki location, equating Obama with Hitler when Obama first ran. We all can believe what we want, support what we want, but we also have to live with the consequences of those beliefs.  And aren’t we glad that we (sort of) still live in a country that espouses that. There is nothing wrong with that…and none of it is “Faux”…in my opinion. Your opinion may vary. Oh, and…I do NOT live in my “mommy’s basement”. What a stupid statement.  I AM the mommy…and the grandmommy…but you go ahead and do exactly what you just ranted about, denigrating those who may disagree with you. Ain’t America great? 

      Oh..yeah..I’m a vet, too….so what !  And I will eat at Dick’s, too, whether they are in West Seattle or not. Just not often…health concerns and all…  :-\

  • Jason March 7, 2017 (12:08 pm)

    Voted twice for South with all of my email addresses!  How about across from McLendon’s in White Center to replace the pawn shop building?  Easy access from WS and from Burien with good neighbors in the hardware store and the original Taco Time.  Cheaper neighborhood with a large parking lot and good street access.

    • Ex-Westwood Resident March 7, 2017 (3:22 pm)

      That’s a GREAT location!!!

    oh, hey…someone doesn’t want alcohol at their favorite  eating establishment? I was just imagining a good beer with my greasy burger from Dicks…and I’m a senior citizen, now into my 8th decade. Just order iced tea if you don’t want alcohol.. :D

    Should this fail, I think we should put a full-court press on the folks at Burgermaster.
    WTF!? When was the last time THEY expanded? 1950?
    C’mon Burgermaster! We want a drive-in with car-hop service! You can do it on Aurora, you can certainly do it somewhere in W./S. Seattle.

    Georgetown would be good on 4th Ave S.  I too miss Dag’s.

    I don’t want Dick’s to end up in Kent/Federal Way.  Anyplace north of Southcenter, west of Lake Washington and south of I-90 would be my hope.

    @Jaylaw….your final comment CRACKED ME UP!!!! LOL!!!!

    And yes everyone its a hamburger restaurant if you don’t like meat don’t go there.

  • walnut March 7, 2017 (4:09 pm)

    @Jaylaw… I commented to quickly I see you had two comments, and I say hear, hear to your 2nd one!!!

  • walnut March 7, 2017 (4:18 pm)

    @JanS… I too will not give Gerry Kingen any of my money for the same reasons as you and also because he already has too much money and how about the 18.3 million he got for being cheated out of land by the airport!!!! The rich always want to be richer! 

  • waikikigirl March 7, 2017 (4:50 pm)

    @ExWWResident…why yes it was where Dag’s used to be, my Dad always stopped there after my orthodontist appointment getting my braces tightened and thought I could eat a burger. Thanks Dad!

      My parents used to take us there after soccer games when we played at Georgetown Field…when it was a dust/mud bowl and then “centrix” field, WAY before the pro-player turf it is now!!!

  • Trevor March 7, 2017 (8:22 pm)

    I think of the Burger Boss as our own Dick’s.  It’s a little more expensive, but the menu is broader plus, corn dog bites

    • sam-c March 8, 2017 (11:27 am)

      yes, we love Burger Boss. And they have more vegetarian options.   Their onion rings are fantastic.

      (still voted for Dick’s to come to the south end- I like the suggestion for the spot near McLendons.)

  • Jaylaw March 7, 2017 (8:24 pm)

    @Jans

    Thank you for your service and your opinion!  :-)

    Have a great night. 

  • Neighbor March 7, 2017 (9:05 pm)

    Dicks!! Yes! Then I wouldn’t have to drive to wallingford for a deluxe fix! I also love that they treat their employees well, and donate to local charities. Yes for voting South!M

  • Junction Lady March 7, 2017 (9:49 pm)

    Dicks on Alki!  Subway & Fatburgers vacated and those buildings are available

  • Jake from State Farm March 8, 2017 (1:14 am)

    I hate to say it but I think the White center area would be a better location. I don’t like the Queen Ann Dick’s location, too modern. All of the other Dick’s location have the drive up style which is why it’s so appealing of the old nostalgia burger joints. 

    Oh “Seattlesunburn” did you read any of “JAYLAWS” comments? Or did your finger get stuck on the keyboard again?

    • SeattleSunburn March 11, 2017 (9:00 am)

      Feeling a bit defensive are you, Jake? Your opinion isn’t being squashed by me. My view is only different than yours and has just as much value to be noted and heard. Nothing I typed on my keyboard diminishes others or the proposed business venture. It is merely that my point of view and lifestyle choice differs from many here. 

  • Ex-Westwood Resident March 8, 2017 (8:57 am)

    Perfect place in WC….

    SW corner of SW 102nd and 16th Ave S.

    Across the street from Taco Time, McLendon’s and “Kitty Corner” from KFC/A&W.

    Used to be a Circle K and ended as a Pawn Shop. Adequate parking, busy stree, close to Burien and WS.

    PERFECT!!!!

  • Jackie March 8, 2017 (11:15 am)

     Loss of a loved one in the Arbor Heights area this morning….now how ridiculous is this about if you eat meat or you don’t!~?

  • Burger Kid March 8, 2017 (8:04 pm)

    HOW ABOUT WEST VANCOUVER, WA DICK? Hands down, D’sD beats I-N-O every time…

  • richard March 16, 2017 (8:03 am)

    There is a vacant spot where once there was a Griff’s (trash)burgers which would be perfect for a walk-up Dick’s burgers. It’s at the corner of 58th and Ralston Rd., in Olde Towne Arvada, Colorado – an up and coming area.

Sorry, comment time is over.
