Should Dick’s Drive-In Build A Burger Joint In/Near Burien? Vote Now…
On Monday afternoon (Aug. 30), Jim Spady of Dick’s Drive-In announced that they’ll be expanding their line of fast food restaurants by one, with the final location to be determined by votes from the public on the restaurant’s website.
There are three areas under consideration:
- South End, which includes Burien, South Seattle, Renton, Tukwila, SeaTac and West Seattle.
- North includes Shoreline, Mountlake Terrace, Lynnwood, Edmonds and South Everett.
- East includes Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Bothell, Mercer Island, Issaquah and Sammamish.
As of 11pm Monday night, the vote tallies are showing us South Enders trailing in third place, with just 29% (1,748 votes) – could this be a sign that we already have a sufficient supply of red meat and tater-based food product?
Leading the pack is the obviously burger-starved East Side, at 37% (2,260 votes).
Second place goes to the North End with 33% (1,982 votes).
So Burien – do YOU want a Dick’s Drive-In ’round these parts? Or are you already happy with B-Town Burgers and other local joints?
Click here to vote, but be very patient – on Monday night, their website was moving about as fast as Heinz ketchup on a cool crisp late-summer rainy day.
