Potato problems for Dick’s Drive-In with end of harvest ‘not producing fries up to standards’

SEATTLE — If you’re stopping by Dick’s Drive-In this week, your fries might taste a bit different than usual.

The restaurant chain says they’re at the end of their season on Washington potatoes, which are now producing fries that they say are not up to their normal standards.

Some locations are reportedly even using different potatoes than usual until they receive a new harvest from eastern Washington.

“Thank you for your patience as we make it through this week,” a statement on their website reads in part. “New potatoes are coming out of the ground as you read this!”

Any customers who receive an order of fries that they are not completely satisfied with are asked to bring it back to the window for a replacement.
