FEDERAL WAY, Wash. — The Seattle-area's most famous burger joint is expanding once again.
Dick's Drive-Ins announced Thursday it will open its ninth location at The Commons At Federal Way shopping center "sometime in 2023."
In a news release, Dick's said the timing depends on the permitting and construction processes. The Federal Way location will look nearly identical to its Kent location.
“The nostalgia I experience each time I get to enjoy a Dick’s Drive-In burger brings me back to Husky Football and the UW,” Federal Way Mayor Jim Ferrell said in Dick's news release. “Dick’s is not just an iconic restaurant in our region, they are a great community partner, and we are excited to welcome this wonderful business to Federal Way.”
