When deprived of flavourful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of classic diner fare at Dick's Drive-In & Dairy Dip.
Dick's Drive-In cheerily doles out made-to-order burgers, shakes, fries, and onion rings. The classic deluxe cheeseburger comprises an Angus Pride charcoal-grilled beef patty adorned with cheddar cheese and fried onions ($7.29). Like a solar-powered dreidel, specialty burgers put a new spin on a classic design, boasting fillings such as fresh ground lamb peppered with herbs and spices ($8.85). Round out meals with homemade fresh-cut fries ($3.39–$7.19) or hand-breaded onion rings ($5.69). Thick, creamy milkshakes dressed in real whipped cream ($5.69) can smother any residual hunger pangs. Reminiscent of 1950s diners, Dick's Drive-In & Dairy Dip proudly flaunts vinyl booths and pastel hues, making for a dining experience more nostalgic than eating candy out of bronzed baby shoes.
Dick's Drive-In & Dairy-Dip
Frustrated by what they perceived as chain restaurants' emphasis on efficiency over quality, the proprietors of Dick's Drive-In & Dairy-Dip set out to recreate a casual burger and malt shop that served fare crafted with time-honoured techniques. Each patty of Angus Pride beef simmers over charcoal before burger crafters crown them with classic garnishes such as ketchup-filled rubies. Alongside more than half a dozen beef burgers, Dick's culinary team concocts a number of specialty burgers from meats such as kangaroo, ostrich, and Italian veal and accents all burgers with gourmet toppings including cream cheese and sautéed mushrooms. Void of preservatives and nitrate, juicy hot dogs supplied by Sausage Kitchen can pair with a selection of hand-cut fries, hand-breaded onion rings, and house-made gravy or aioli dipping sauces. To satiate sweet teeth, Dick's serves milkshakes, floats, and ice-cream treats to diners nestled in a cozy booth or gathered around the counter.
