Fun day; we now have 5 Burger guys (not to be confused with 5 Guys Burgers).
Today Norm had the picking duty and he chose a new place in Tualatin called DickieJo’s. The website and T-Shirts have a logo: “Lucky 52”. I took that as a good omen since I was born in 1952.
Now that we have 5 of us, we need to take 2 cars. Norm and Ray drove over and we met at my house

We navigated the tricky twists and turns on Martinazzi Ave. and found that both cars made it.
The staff was very friendly and took our picture. We had been talking with the family behind us and the guy definitely wanted to be part of our crew.

The family behind us have been there before and gave us some good tips. You walk in and get in line to place your order
|Our happy server. Wish I would have got her name.|
|Behind the scenes; more or less. Nice view of the going’s on from our table|
I ordered a root beer milkshake. It wasn’t on the menu but our server told me she could make one. Sweet!
|Nice thick shake with whipped cream on top|
The burger arrived with the fries. Very tasty looking. They have a nice dipping sauce for the fries; probably mayo and ketchup with a dash of mustard.
|Nice looking burger but it could have used some seasning (i.e. salt|
|Obviously it was good enough!|
I’ve been having a dickens of a time getting my Google Docs spreadsheet incorporated in the blog. When I pick a new pivot table to insert the old one goes away. So, I’ll continue with screen shots of the ratings; not ideal. But if I wait to figure it out I’ll never get anything published.

Selected comments on the Fries
Ray had a beer; the rest of us had shakes which we liked. We are all still waiting to find that milk shake made with hard ice cream spun up in a metal canister on a green Hamilton Beach shake mixer. That will be the 5-star milk shake. These shakes had whipped cream which kicked them up a notch.
Selected comments on the service and ambience
It was high noon on Saturday and the place was jumping with a line approaching the door. But Dickie Jo’s was adequately staffed and everyone seemed to be getting their order in reasonable time. Wait staff was personable and friendly. Customers also seemed to be happy and although the place had only been open for a couple of weeks I would guess the customers were a good mix of first timers and returning folks.
Note that at press time we hadn’t heard from John.
So overall a pretty solid entry. I think most of us have it somewhere in the middle. Dea’s and Killer Burger are still the two top contenders.
Some of the guys may have comments or pictures they’ll want to add as comments.
