Dick's Drive-In, or simply Dick's, is a fast-food restaurant chain in the Seattle
area. Founded in 1954, Dick's is Seattle’s oldest, continuously operating fast-food restaurant and is a Seattle icon, according to the Puget Sound Business Journal.Founders Dick Spady, H. Warren Ghormley, and Dr. B. O. A. Thomas opened the first Dick's in 1954 in Seattle's Wallingford neighborhood, on N.E. 45th Street. In 1955, a second Dick's was opened in Seattle's Capitol Hill district. The simple menu has changed little over time. It features fast-food staples such as hamburgers, hand-cut french fries, and individually made milkshakes.
