Booches is good but it's a little overrated for the price IMO.

$2 burgers too much for you to handle?

Personally they should have put The Diner on there. Best breakfast food in the world when you're hammered drunk.

When the burgers are pretty much bite size, yes.

Either you have a mouth the size of a bear, or you're poor...or both.

Bad mouth many other things, but stay off of Booche's. The burgers aren't tiny, the prices are fine, and the red (chilli) is really good.

Fuck that guy for suggesting a piece of fucking pie while in Seattle.

Start here. They're all over, but the one in the U-District is my favorite. This is Seattle freakin WA baby. Everyone loves Dick's!

Heh, I love that line just for that reason.

One time when I was 17, my cousin (same age) was going to the airport to pick up his girlfriend's dad whom he had never met. This girl was his first love and he asked me to go because he was nervous as shit meeting this guy. I tagged along.

We go down to the airport, grab him from the gate get his bags and it's just awkward as fuck. He flew in from FL, and was dog tired. Hella easy going guy, but didn't have much to say as he'd been flying all day.

So we're on the freeway and my cousin out of the blue blurts out "So, Brian, do you like Dick's?"

"Well, I like my own." he replied.

LMAO LMAO LMAO Poor, poor motherfucker. That whole encounter and watching him fumble over his explanation is something I will never, ever forget. He gets pissed to this day when I tell that story.
