Pick Quick Drive-In

4306 Pacific Highway East, Fife, WA - (253) 922-5599
Posted By Jim Scheppke on 6/28/2003 6:05:00 PM
If you are traveling on I-5 between Tacoma and Seattle, this place makes a great stop right off the freeway just north of Tacoma in Fife. It's on old Highway 99 and is a relic of the past when this was the main highway between Seattle and Tacoma. All the food is great and inexpensive, and there is a very pleasant outdoor eating area with picnic tables. The milkshakes are a standout, made with fresh fruit in season and fresh frozen fruit off season. Strawberries were in season when I was there last, but the frozen blackberries made a wonderful shake too.

This mountain blackberry shake tasted of real fruit and was so thick, the straw was useless.

You can't tell from the photo, but these were overly greasy fries.

There is a pleasant picnic table area out back and on a clear day, you can see Mount Rainier.
