I like that the pattys aren't overly large here. SOmetimes in America, you order a burger and you are like what... how am I going to eat this? You can choose how big or small you want based on the sizes they have. The burgers are excellent. Made and prepared fresh. They accept cash only which can be a problem... More

I have eaten here several times with coworkers and find the burgers just OK. The use a really small beef patty making the bun seem huge. Fries are good and the shakes decent. Just don't expect a full stomach when your done.

In my opinion PQ is one of the BEST burger stands in the nation. And man oh man did I visit a lot of famous ones when my company had me traveling all over the US. If you like hamburgers, french fries and shakes from the old days. This place is the gourmet of "Happy Days" burger stands! I count... More

Tried the double cheeseburger, fries and a marshmallow shake. The fries and shake were delicious. The burger was nothing special. Nice staff and really quick service especially at lunch hour. They were busy but it goes fast.

I've finally found a decent burger place in the greater Tacoma area! Pick Quick requires you to stand in a line outside to order (you can call ahead). They take cash only. They have a large outside seating area with many picnic tables. I ordered a double cheese burger (1/4 pound total) and a lime shake. I was surprised at... More

The milkshake was fantastic. The burgers were just average. You get a lot of fries per order - we probably should have just ordered one for the two of us.

We have stopped here a couple of times for ice cream and have been by pleased both times. The place is real not retro and is a must do in the Tacoma/Fife area. Treat yourself after you lose at the nearby casino.
