Dick's Drive-In

Dick's Drive-In
Dick's on 45th near the University of Washington is a Seattle institution for the classic burgers, fries, and shakes. But you'll rarely see it like this: closed, without the throng of cars and people normally filling the parking lot.

My favorite Dick's story: Several years ago when I was a limo driver, I had a group of prom kids that came here for their prom dinner. What a sight, boys in their tuxes and girls in their fancy dresses, all huddled around the back of the limo, eating burgers and fries off the trunk. It doesn't get any classier (or classicier) than that.
