I have been going here since I was a kid. This place has character and atmosphere. It looks like the kind of place you would drive right by...but you shouldn't. The food here is greasy spoon style. This is not a place for the health food conscious person because they don't really have anything for you. The hamburgers are the... More

This little place has the tastiest hamburgers! They serve you food right on the table on paper placements. The servers are friendly and attentive. We highly recommend Hickies!

We visited here while in area for a family reunion. This place has always been special to my parents and they were able to visit here after a number of years. The owner Shugg's was there to greet us. It was still as good as ever and we had a wonderful experience.

If you are within 100 miles of Portsmouth,Ohio you have to visit Hickie's. It is an iconic restaurant in Ohio. Burgers cone in a piece of wax paper. Specialities are burgers, gravy and fries and bean soup.

Wonderful homemade coleslaw, fries covered in brown gravy and the BIG YOGI burger certainly made for a memorable meal. I will return to enjoy more of this excellent fare.The service was supreme and the owner personable. She is proud of her establishment and has every reason to be. The prices are very reasonable and if you should have to wait... More

Come here all the time for great burger sliders. Very cheap and I could eat it every day. If you are looking for a small hole in the wall while passing through town, or live close by... Then come on by.

The Big Yogi was delicious, but the best reason to eat here is the owner, Lenore, and her staff. Nicest people you would ever hope to meet.

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. Hickie's is synonymous with New... More
