Dick's on Broadway: Closed for "Extensive Plumbing Repairs"

Fans of late-night Dick's Drive-In location on Broadway take note: The burger joint will be closed for three days until Sept. 11th for "extensive plumbing repairs". The other locations of the popular local eatery remain open -- and contrary to speculation, there's no reason to be concerned the location made famous by Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Posse on Broadway" song is closing.

(Other storefronts along Broadway, including Jack-In-The-Box, have -- as you may have noticed -- closed for Sound Transit light rail station construction.)

A message left for callers on the Dick's Broadway answering machine explains:

"The Broadway Dick's Drive-In will be closed for three days starting Monday September 8th for extensive plumbing repairs we will reopen Thursday Sept. 11th we apologize for any inconvenience. If you'd like to leave a message please wait at the beep."


From now until Thursday, Queen Anne Dick's (500 Queen Anne Ave. N., 1.7 miles away) is your closest alternative (see map, below). I also recommend In-N-Out -- the nearest is in Redding, California (1275 Dana Drive, 595 miles away) -- as a temporary substitute (not mapped below).
