Nic always knows what you've ordered even if he never turns around. His partner asks you what you want and Nic gets right at it. What A Team! You have to get the Cheeseburger and Fries. You'll agree it is the best burger this side of the Atlantic Ocean!

Nic's is amazing. Everyone I have taken to eat there wants to go back when they visit. Be prepared for a long line at the door but it moves pretty quickly. If you want the best chicken fried steak Nic serves that too.

I can't even describe how disappointed I was with my visit. I had waited a long time to try this place because the grill on Penn was always packed so I would never go there. I always heard how wonderful the food was. When the new place opened I had to go! Very few people there at the time we... More

After hearing about Nic's Grill on Diners, Drive-In and Dives several years ago, my husband and I have been trying to get to Oklahoma City when Nic's was open. We finally were able to do it on a recent Friday. We arrived at 10:30 and there was already a short wait, but we were seated at the back counter in... More

Great tasting food, but the restaurant is VERY small - seats maybe 15 to 20 people. Be prepared to wait in line unless you get there before they open.

Best. Hamburger. Ever! The line above pretty much says it all, but I have to submit 100 characters. This is a really cool, small place that has the greatest hamburgers, and other food ever. If you're in the neighborhood, please go. But, be prepared for a line, it only seats like 20 people or so, so is usually a long... More

get in line before 11 am or you are in for a wait for one of the best burgers in town. Just a very small space, no more than 13 for seating, but worth the wait.

This is a huge burger and made to order fresh on the spot. No doubt the tastiest hamburger I've eaten. Expect to stand in line as they only have seating for a dozen or so, but so well worth the wait.

Consistently outstanding food. Small place so get there by 11 if you can, otherwise you'll be in a line outside. If you like onion burgers then you can stop looking, Nic's is the bomb.

Thank Joe R
