The Big Yogi, beans, and cornbread

Many years ago, the Kentucky Headhunters had a song with the lyrics, "we'll get a slaw burger, fries, and a bottle of Ski," and I've often wondered if they were sitting in Hickie's when they wrote it. Granted, Hickie's may not have Ski, but odds are the Big Yogi has inspired a song or two... read more

If you like burgers off a wet grill hickies is your place! They have about an inch of grease on the grill that they fry the little burgers in. It gives them a unique taste that is to die for. Probably not very healthy however they raise really good!

It is by far the best kept secret in Ohio...We always make it here from NC on our way to WI...It is an hour out of the way but worth every minute. The place should be on Diners Drive Ins and Dives...No wait, no it shouldnt! I dont want the lines any longer than they already are!

The title is what Sugg yelled when my parents told her it was my first time here. While it was a bit embarrassing it was all in good fun. Hickie's was busting at the seams when we stopped by to get a bite to eat. The atmosphere is really "down home" and everyone knows everyone and most likely knows what... More

I have been to Hickie's several times over tje past 20 years, and each time I go I experience the same mediocre, greasy spoon diner food. At best it is just ok. What's all the fuss about?

Stopped in with my mother-in-law for a quick bite before heading to a football game. It is great little hamburger joint. We ordered a hamburger, fish sandwich and onion rings. Wonderful meal. The hamburger was the best. The soups they had look very tasty will have to go back and try them. The prices were very reasonable. Our meal came... More

OMG!! Hickie's is an amazing little place :) :) Our waitress greeted us promptly and gave us a quick run down of the menu. She disappeared to get our drinks. In her absence, the owner, Shugi, came out to our table to chat. She found out we were from GA and that we were "Hickie's virgins". She announced it to... More
