Eat at ick’s?


A couple weeks ago I was amused to see that the light for the D was out in this sign, making one of the famous Seattle burger stands sound slightly less appetizing.

    • Heh, yeah. The drive-ins were named for Dick Spady, one of the three founders, in 1954. There’s also a completely unafilliated Dick’s Drive-in in Spokane from the same era with a very similar style building, but named for a different Dick. Since the name was fairly common in the past I don’t think it held nearly the strong association it does now. 😀
