It hurts so good!

I know as someone who is looking to eat healthier that I shouldn't even drive down the same street that Nic's is on, because when I get near it, I can just smell the taste of the big juicy hamburger made just the way you like it from fresh ground meat and grilled onions with hot melted cheese and... read more

Are you a burger fan? Don't miss Nic's Grill in OKC. They have some other items but the Burgers are the answer. Nic's is very busy with few seats in the small location. Character is the work here with Oklahoma being the theme. Great to sit at the counter for lunch and watch your burger being built. They are build... More

Hands down the best burger you will eat. Have lived in many cities and have traveled to even more and this is the best that I have had. Expect to wait unless you get there early but it is worth the wait. Bring cash and don't eat breakfast the morning you go. Everything a burger should be...greasy and delicious!!

When we drive to Oklahoma one of my first places to visit, if it is open, is Nic's. The place is always busy and if you're not early you will have a hard time getting a seat. The place is busy for a reason. The food is delish! While I try to eat healthy, I dive off the deep at... More

I cannot stop thinking about this burger place. I tell everyone I know that it is the best burger I have ever had, anywhere, in the entire world. Anytime anyone even goes near OK, I tell them they have to stop here. You know it is good when there are people who are willing to stand, in line, without complaint,... More

Forget about any other Burger joint you may have heard of in the area, this is the only one you need to go to. Terribly small, inconveniently located and cash only, these are the only negatives to an almost perfect burger experience, and the burger is so good, you don't even care about the negatives. This is old school Onion... More

Bring cash! This place is one of the best small diners I have ever been to. The atmosphere was incredible but I did not have any cash on me. Fortunately, two amazing people picked up my tab. I think this just goes to show you what type of place this is. Highly recommended!!

Nic's is open for Breakfast and Lunch, M-F, they close at 2pm., take cash. Also very small place, when I say small it's only a couple of steps to counter once in the front door. If you are planning on lunch go hungry and early as a line form around 11am. Just a thought if in a wheelchair, I would... More

This was our second time to eat at Nic's. Very, Very, Very small place. Plan to stand in line for your burger. Only about 15 seats but well worth the wait. Don't plan on eating the rest of the day after this burger. Nic has that grill going with burgers, onions, peppers. Make sure you have everything on your burger... More
