This is a must eat destination if you like chese burgers and gravy fries!!!!

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

I've been going to Hickie's since I was a kid. Now that I've moved away, I make sure to stop in any time I'm in town. I love the small hamburgers and fries. I've never had a huge appetite, but I always order two burgers. The prices are reasonable.

We visit often for a great meal. Hickies is a nice little restaurant in the village of New Boston, Ohio. They have a small but varied menu and that is enough for most people. There burgers and bean soup are my favorites. If you go and they find out you are a first time visitor, be prepared to be loudly... More

Hickie's has been feeding burgers and similar small burger joint food for over a quarter of a century. Many small towns have one of these places where the burgers are small, served casually, and won't cost you a bunch. You can get singles or doubles, and you can order with pickle and/or onion - but don't be asking for all... More
