This is a huge burger and made to order fresh on the spot. No doubt the tastiest hamburger I've eaten. Expect to stand in line as they only have seating for a dozen or so, but so well worth the wait.

Consistently outstanding food. Small place so get there by 11 if you can, otherwise you'll be in a line outside. If you like onion burgers then you can stop looking, Nic's is the bomb.

Went for a late lunch with my two grown kids. The burgers are cooked to order on the well seasoned grill when you walk in the door. The fries are fresh, not frozen and served hot. We went at 1 pm on a Thursday afternoon and got right in which is unusual. There is usually a line out the door... More

I heard that this was the best burger in OKC. Finally found an afternoon that I was available to go... Waited in line for about 90 minutes. The burger was great. It really was. But worth the 90 minute wait? I don't think so. Best burger in OKC? I don't think so either. Check it out if you have 2-3... More

Nic's is a quirky, iconic greasy-burger place that still makes the old-fashioned real-meat-patties-formed-by-hand deliciousness. I confess to not even really being a burger lover, but when I ate there some time ago, I enjoyed the tasty well-seasoned and well-cooked beef. I prefer a GOOD sear on beef, as I think that adds much flavor, and Nic does this, getting an... More

Great burgers There is very little space for seating so it is not unusual to stand outside and wait. Burgers are awesome, worth a short wait.

My husband and I love traveling to try Diner, Drive-Ins and Dives spots. This place definitely lived up to the hype. Yes, the line was long, but as so many have already said, it was worth the wait! My husband I both got a burger and fries. They were delicious, big, and reasonably priced. We think the burgers were among... More

My friend told me about this place and told me we had to go. I wasn't excited about waiting in line for 20 minutes for a burger. But it was worth every single sweaty minute. The seating is very limited but Nic cooks right in front of you. Everything is made fresh and you can tell. It is hands down... More

If you are looking for a good old fashioned hamburger, this is your place. No frills limited seating and get there early as the line forms quickly starting around 11.
