Free Dick’s! Cheeseburgers For Grads! But Sundaes Bacon Me Hungry! Latest Burger News and Bacon Madness!


Dick’s Drive-In in Seattle is an iconic burger institution.

They make hamburgers and cheeseburgers, wrapped tightly and economically like so:

They are simple, sure, but they TASTE GREAT! Bite down hard on one and see for yourself!

They are also a great local business, and have a really great special going on right now:

Here is the headline: “Seattle-area chain Dick’s Drive-In is celebrating the graduation season with a free cheeseburger or hamburger to any high school or college graduate who shows up at any Dick’s Drive-In in their cap and gown, until June 21.”

Free is a great price, but you can also buy yourself a delicious Dick’s Special:

You forego the cheese, ketchup and mustard and go for mayo and lettuce…tasty!

While you line up to order, imagine what you might enjoy…the menu is simple: hamburgers, cheeseburgers, specials and the deluxe, which puts on double the meat…


And don’t forget the fresh-cut fries, skins on for extra flavor…

I always opt for the small cup of tartar sauce for a nickel to drag these baby’s through….

There you have it, a nice gesture to grads from a great local burger joint – they have at least a half dozen scattered throughout the Seattle area, and I drop in whenever I am up north…now onto some disturbing bacon news:


After a successful test, Burger King has announced that they will be offering a bacon sundae – vanilla soft serve with fudge, caramel, bacon crumbles and a piece of bacon nationwide.

The salty-sweet dessert clocks in at 510 calories, 18 grams of fat and 61 grams of sugar.

And in other international burger news: DOUBLE BEEF KICKS!

McDonald’s in customizing a burger to each country…In Poland the burger is a double-patty “Euroburger”; in the Czech Republic it also has two patties and is the “Double Beef Kick”. In Germany the soccer-bun burger is the “Team Burger” with cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, cucumber slices and mustard sauce. In Hungary it’s the “Fanburger.”

And if you are down to your last euro, McDonald’s France has the “Le Charolais mini burger” from the “Petit Plaisir” menu. Their version of the dollar menu…

So much breaking burger and bacon news, I need a nice refreshing “Bacon Bloody Mary” to calm down!
