Here is a nice little story about the man behind Seattle burger chain Dick’s Drive-In. It is a small chain, but there are those who love it, including me. Fries are real, fried in veggie oil, and good but kind of greasy ; burgers are awesome; shakes are good if you like that kind of thing. Classic retro ambience, has never changed and hopefully never will. I would do all kinds of things to get a Dick’s franchise in Wheaton; immoral things, probably; much more than I would do for a Klondike Bar, or even a really good empanada. Alas, it will never happen, but I can dream. Belated Veterans Day thanks to Dick Spady and all the other vets for their service.
