How to get rid of dandelions???

I have about 100 dandelions in the front yard , and I recall last year going out and picking the weeds out of the grass, leaving holes where ever they were, and most of the time the root broke and so I knew it was coming back someday. What is everyones recommendation for getting rid of them. Is there a particular spray that will kill the weed and not the grass?
Thanks.

You mean those cute little flowers aren't supposed to be there? :)

IT is not organic, but 2-4-d should kill your broad leaf weeds and not harm *most* grasses. I would do a test spot first and I would not recommend it if you live very close to water. Many feed stores carry the 2-4-d - we live in a rural area, so it is readily available, but depending on where you live, you may want to call ahead to see if they have it.

Burning them also works.
