These guys will feed you Big Time.

This place has been recognized on a few of the food road shows. Get here early because it's small and can get packed. There is no skimping on entry sizes here. Bring your appetite and be prepared to be satisfied.

Best burger joint I know of. Great quality, good service, very crowded and can only hold a few at a time. It is worth the wait and the weight! Only open at breakfast and lunch.

Such a little place with such big taste! This neighborhood find is just as delicious as it is fun. The fabulous burgers are cooked to order right in front of you, as the seating is extremely limited, and the fries are perfection. Nic is there himself working hard to make this a reason to return time and time again. Plus... More

I love the breakfast. He doesn't write anything down. He does it all by memory. Of course the place is very small, so go early. He is only open until 2, I think. And he only accepts cash. Very friendly place, you can either talk to the person next to you or watch the huge television above the bar area.... More

One of Oklahoma's Iconic Meal experiences. If you arrive after 10:45 there will be a wait, but it will be well worth it. Nic is a hands on guy and takes your order by the spoken word. The food, the smell and the ambience grabs you by your taste buds and once again you will understand the expression "Comfort Food".

Many consider Oklahoma as the onion burger capitol of the world. Many of the top burger joints are in Oklahoma, and I've tried most all of them...from Sid's and Robert's in El Reno; J&W in Chickasha, Meers Burgers, Hamburger Inn in Ardmore; Irma's, Tucker's; The Garage, S&J, and every other one in between...but I will say with full confidence, that...

After eating at Nic's we see why they are #1. We had to have just eaten one of the best burgers in our life. We had to wait over 40 minutes but well worth it. Nic was behind the counter cooking and was a great conversationalist. The whole visit was fantastic. This is a must see stop.

Enjoyed the delicious burger and fries. Nick is very hospitable to all of the guests. Worth waiting in line. Fortunately for those who don't have the time, he will be opening up a new place soon!

We ate here just last week.... I love it. None better than nice and devon. They are such a goon team together. They are awesome. Everything in that tiny little place is wonderful. Only thing that is bad is that there is not enough seating. But that is also what makes it soo cool . We were first loin line... More
