I love a good burger, and am actually pretty picky when it comes to burgers. I also like shady, hole-in-the-wall-type places.  Nic’s combines the best of both worlds with a fantastic burger prepared in a little building, a shack actually, just off NW 10th on Penn.

I like my burgers thicker than onion burgers, greasy, and full of meaty flavor. The problem with griddle-fried burgers is that often times they are very bland when they are not squashed down to typical onion burger thickness. In fact, I hate watching Oklahoma City’s onion fry chefs (I hear they are better in El Reno, but I don’t know from personal experience) get their big spatulas and then squish every last morsel of juice out of every patty they fry. I also hate watching friends do this when they are grilling burgers at home. My favorite part of a burger is all the flavorful beef juice that explodes into a cholesterol and fat-laden flavor bomb with every bite. Nic has figured out how to serve a big, beefy (dare I say manly?) burger without murdering it while it cooks.

I have actually been meaning to experience a Nic’s burger for myself for a long time now. The problem is that every time I drive by there are people lined out the door and there is no place to park. There are only 15 seats in the entire place — nine at the bar, where you get a front row seat to all the cooking action, and 3 two-seater tables along the back wall. I went at 11:20am and had no trouble claiming 2 bar stools, although Nic did say it was one of his slower days in quite some time.  By the time we left, it was standing room only. My advice is get there early, before the big lunch rush.  Apparently there is major to-go and call-in business here as well, so you have options.

Before I dive into the burger and fries I experienced, let me go over the menu.  Breakfast, burgers, and chicken fried steak.  No frilly salads, no fruit cups, no yogurt and raisin parfait, just different slabs and hunks of meat and eggs thrown on a griddle. That’s my kind of place. He does have a daily special of pork chops, meatloaf, or fried chicken, depending on the day. I can’t wait to say that I have tried them all. I love a griddle or pan fried chicken fried steak, so I can’t wait to try Nic’s. He seasons, lightly flours, then throws it on the griddle. Once it’s done it is plated, and then he goes around to a back room where he finds mashed potatoes and white gravy to cover everything in.  I have to admit, my eyes started to well with tears of joy when I first saw him do this.

The burgers are thrown on the grill in what appears to be 1/3 to 1/2 pound of meat.  I didn’t ask the exact weight as I was feeling a little verklempt after watching the chicken fry and the precision with which Nic fielded orders from patrons in seats, over the phone, and from standing, waiting to-go orders. The burger was covered with cheese, grilled onions, dressed to my specifications, and then piled onto a toasted bun. It was huge, sloppy, and extremely hot.

He also has hand-cut curly fries that are fried to each order. Sure, lots of places serve hand-cut fries, but Nic’s look better. They aren’t mushy and brown like you so often see.  They are crispy, golden, and fresh.  He doesn’t care about letting them sit and drain. He believes that hotter is better and throws them straight from the grease directly onto your plate.  The portion of fries is the size of a small child, and when paired with a burger it is a daunting task just to finish everything.

Nic, always looking to help curb coronary disease, does not serve a double burger.

A few comments I and my lunch companion made really help to sum up the experience.  My companion thanked me for making him experience a place like this. He had no idea the treasures you can find if you just take a risk and jump into some of these little dives to experience true Oklahoma City culture.  He is obviously not a regular shady companion, but after this experience, he may well be. My reaction to Nic’s was equally sincere. I believe I muttered something about this burger changing my life as I wiped tears from my eyes.

I would call Nic’s shady, but not so shady as to deserve the prestigious designation of “Shady Restaurant of the Month.”  To me, it has shady characteristics, but falls more into hole-in-the-wall status. We don’t want to cheapen the title given monthly to those truly shady places, so let’s just call Nic’s a great hole-in-the-wall with fantastic food.  Prepare yourself properly before going so you can maximize your experience. Arrive early, skip breakfast, and be prepared to either sneak a nap at work afterwards or to at least have access to a highly caffeinated beverage. I have a feeling you, like me, will agree this is the best burger in town.  Let us know what you think in the comments.

    Have you considered making your reviews less great? Because I totally brought my lunch to work today, but now I want to throw it in the trash, pick a fight with a hobo and then eat at Nic’s. So thanks a lot, jerk.

    I work just down the street from this place and have never gone there because it does look a little seedy, but there are always people jammed in there so after reading your article I am going to try it out today for lunch. I will let you know what I think later.

    I love Nics! The burgers are second to none and yes, you must get there early. I have tried all of the specials and the chicken is killer. However if you can believe it, the breakfast is worth the million calories! Almost better than the burgers if you can imagine it! Great review!

  • Kevin says:
    September 10th, 2008 at 11:37 am   

    AUGH….well I just finished the bacon cheese burger with about 5lbs of fries and I really need a place to hibernate for a couple of days. It was AWESOME! The grilled onions were the best I ever had and there were loads of them on the burger. I will have to go back next week and try something else now!

  • Courtney says:

    I didn’t realize this place was still open! I don’t live in the city, so whenever I drive by, it’s an evening or weekend. Nic’s is, of course, closed at those times. The very tiny-ness of the building has always fascinated me. Now that I know that there is also good food inside, I will hope to make a visit if I’m ever there during the week.

    I must have been on the seat next to Kevin because I just finished eating there as well. It was my first time and I was really impressed. Big, juicy burgers with tons of grilled onions. Not a traditional thin patty that some expect with an onion burger – a big, beefy burger. It was way better than I expected. I had curly fries that were solid as well. One of the guys that I ate with is a regular and he said he almost never gets a burger because the rest of the menu is so good (and cheap). I will definitely go back.

    Does anyone know how this place compares to Bunny’s over at 50th and Meridian? I LOVE Bunny’s. I’m not a fan of Ron’s though. I think it’s very overrated.

  • Lew says:
    September 10th, 2008 at 4:57 pm   

    I too had heard about Nic’s, but never been. Went for lunch today and it may just be the best fried onion joint in OKC and I have tried just about all of them. The burger was big and juicy. The fries were awesome and the service great. I was with there with a regular and I can’t wait to go back and try the rest of the menu items.

    Are they open on Saturdays? If so, I am so there this Saturday.

  • Andrew says:
    September 10th, 2008 at 7:03 pm   

    Let me start answering some of these questions:
    1) Unfortunately Nic is only open M-F for breakfast and lunch.
    2) Bunny’s doesn’t compare to Nic’s, and yes, I too think Ron’s is overrated.
    3) I’m not sold on calling this an onion fry. Doesn’t it have to be cooked in or on, or mixed up with, onions? Nic cooks his onions separately.
    4) Glad so many of you experienced Nic’s for yourself today. It’s my new favorite spot in town.

    I was with Andrew when he first partook of one of Nic’s burgers. I think the exact quote was “this burger has changed my life”. It’s not really a burger….it’s an experience.

  • Scott says:

    A good friend of mine introduced me to Nic’s probably about a year ago. Ever sinced that first bite, I have been touting it as the best burger in OKC to all my friends and the reaction is always the same “Where’s Nic’s?”. While I completely agree with this article, I hate it that know I’m going to have to get there at 11 to get my fix. I better leave now!!!

  • Michael says:
    September 11th, 2008 at 11:06 am   

    I’ve driven by this place numerous times. Much like Courtney (above) I thought it was closed, mostly because I drive by it in the evenings. Perhaps a lunch spot for today???? :)

  • Sharon says:
    September 11th, 2008 at 11:48 am   

    arghhh, I have driven by here probably a thousand times – really. Never considered even stopping until know. Thanks so much for unearthing all these treasures!

  • Andrew says:
    September 11th, 2008 at 8:21 pm   

    Here is another word of advice. If you want the daily special of Fried Chicken (pretty sure that is Wednesday) you better call in for it. We went at 11:15 and Nic was already sold out.

    And don’t think about splitting a meal with someone. No sharing meals inside. With there being only 15 seats it would probably cause riots if Nic didn’t have a policy in place anyhow.

  • Rena says:
    September 12th, 2008 at 3:17 pm   

    I have driven by that place a ton of times and have never stopped. I definately will the next time! Thanks for a great review.

  • George says:
    September 13th, 2008 at 3:52 pm   

    Absolutely the best burger I have had in my life! I’m kinda sad for all the publicity. The line will only get bigger! Nic has something going that is amazing!

  • Robert Prince says:

    I am so glad to finally see a review come in for Nic’s. I have been eating there for around 7 years. My father-in-law discovered the place through his normal course of business as a heat & air company.

    I actually took pictures of Nic’s about two months ago and was planning on writing a review to submit to you, or to at least have you review it, but never got around to it. Boy, am I glad, because I would not have done it justice compared to your article.

    I agree with everything you said, and just wanted to add that breakfast’s are just as delicious but probably larger. In fact, if you ever order the pancakes (they are also the best in town), be sure and order only a meat with it, no hashbrowns or anything, because it will be TOO much. You need the meat though to give you a flavor break. The omelet’s are equally as satisfying and huge.

    My favorite meal there is probably the Friday special. Meatloaf with green beans and mashed potatoes and white gravy, Ohhh, so delicious, you will not be disappointed.

    Thanks for the work you do putting places like Nic’s on the radar for us fine folks.

    every time im in town i have to go get a burger there no doubt one of my favorite burger places ever

  • Chris J. says:

    I just had Nic’s-To-Go and It was so good. It was made to order especially for me and it was absolutely amazing. The bread got a bit soggy from the drive home, but it was still very good.

    Everytime I have went to Nic’s, there is always someone asking if they accept credit cards. I’m a cash person, so never knew. Anyone here know?

    Finally made it to lunch here yesterday. Tried to go a couple weeks ago but Nic was closed due to illness. Anyway, went by myself, which is a great option since it allowed me to snag the only available counter seat. Met some nice people since we were all sitting very close to each other. Also met Nic and told him about the fantastic reception his place has received here on the site.

    About the food — man, that burger is huge, and tasty. The onions he puts on top are unbelievable. I agree with Andrew, this is not an “onion-burger” in the El Reno tradition, since the onions aren’t smashed in. But it is a burger topped with some amazing grilled onions. I loved the choice of other toppings as well, including jalepenos.

    The fries were great as well, fresh cut, very thin, and fresh cooked.

    Cheeseburger combo with fries and drink for $7 is a good value.

    Though the burger and fries is not a healthy choice, you can find some more healthy options here. The guy next to me had the grilled pork chop Tuesday daily special with green beans instead of mashed potatoes. It looked great and offered a pretty healthy option for a good value.

    I also appreciated how much attention they were able to give every customer with just the two man show that runs everything. There was never a time my iced tea was wanting for a refill. Great work!

    Only problem with this place is that it’s not something my wife would enjoy, I think. She’s only be able to eat about 1/4 of that burger and since there’s no splitting plates, I doubt it’d be a good option for us to enjoy together.

    Looking forward to trying breakfast there sometime. My fellow diners told me it was terrific.

    Kudos, Nic.

    I go to lunch at Nic’s probably twice a month. The drve from Edmond is certainly worth it. Now that Abraham’s is officially gone Nic’s is probably the best fried burger in OKC. The portions are more than enough as I usually need to get the circulation back in my arms after all of the heavy lifting ! The two workers here make sure that you always have something to drink even if you are standing and waiting for a seat. Try the fried jalapenos and swiss cheese on your burger but just leave me some fried chicken, that’s what I’m gonna try next time in. Let’s keep this great restaurant in business !

    Also, there was mention here about calling ahead. When I tried to call ahead the day my friend and I wanted to try it for the first time, I got a busy signal – only to discover when I got there that they leave the phone off the hook – so no calling in to come pick it up. You have to wait. I asked someone else there that was waiting for a to-go order and she said that she has only picked up too because they don’t answer the phone during the lunch rush. Just FYI so you can plan ahead.

  • mattjank says:

    Been wanting to try it, but can’t ever get there when there is not line out the door. As a rule when does the line begin? Also, how long would the wait be with only 3-4 people waiting outside?

    Just the uninitiated wanting to try the goodness.

  • isaac says:

    been here numerous times now since this review was posted. the burgers are great and so is the breakfast. make sure you have en easy afternoon though, the burgers will fill you up.

  • Andrew says:
    November 12th, 2008 at 10:34 pm   

    To answer mattjank’s question: If you are there before 11:15 there is often a free seat. The line moves relatively quickly however. Nic will make sure you have something to drink while standing and waiting anyhow, and you can watch ESPN highlights on the big flat panel. It’s worth the wait. Go.

    Went to Nic’s a few months ago and thought I submitted an article. Oh well… Listen, there are few burger joints in OKC that match Nic’s. It was amazing. The burger was juicy, cooked correctly. I love the fresh veggies and I like jalepenos and they chop them right there fresh. The fries were great, my only complaint would be there is too much. The fries ended up getting cold. Oh and I think the bun could be a bit smaller. But I’m just pickly like that.

  • Neill Harmer says:
    December 18th, 2008 at 5:48 pm   

    Had Nics for the first time today. Hella good.

    Only two complaints… 1. Place is really small. 2. Don’t wear nice just out of the dry cleaners clothes, you will walk out smelling of grease and feel kinda gross because of it.

  • Joe says:
    December 25th, 2008 at 11:37 pm   

    I was driving through OKC and wanted a truly great burger. This place delivers exactly that. Everything in Tor review was dead on, the food, the place, and Nic is just that cool. It sounds trite, nut when someone loves what they do it shows. And when that something is food you can taste it.

    This place is only a couple minutes off the highway and excellent–and your review led me there, thank you for that.

    I was likely one of Nic’s original regular customers and have been waiting for a review just like this one to inform the people of OKC what a burger is supposed to taste like. I moved to TX 2 yrs ago and have since dreamed about bacon cheeseburgers with fresh cut curly fries on multiple occasions. Best burger I’ve ever tasted hands down. Tom-PLEEEEEEASE!! Go get your nails done or something! ;)

    Nic’s Grill is the real deal. Nic serves-up the absolute best burger that I have ever had in my life.
    How Nic and his assistant can keep up with the demand and still provide the quality food is beyond me.
    Get the burger combo on the menu. Add all the sides you want. Walk out of Nic’s with a tear in your eye having had a life changing experience that many can only dream of.

    Nic’s Rules!!!!!!!

    March 7th, 2009 at 10:18 pm   

    I’ve been twice now. Once for THE burger and now for breakfast. I made it a little early for lunch and caught a western omelette this week. The meat was cut chunky and the onions and peppers were devine. The older lady next to me proclaimed to Nic that it was the best omelette she’s ever had. It’s hard to disagree. I’m now thinking it’s worth getting there at 10:30 for breakfast/lunch and missing the big rush for the burgers.

    I’ve eaten hamburgers all over the U.S. I’ve had them from New York to Florida to Washington. I’ve had fried onion burgers at J&W Grill in Chickasha. I’ve had Bunnies.

    I have NEVER eaten a better hamburger served by a nicer guy.

    I went to Nic’s after the dangerous statement that It was the best in town. Well now I agree. I have sampled quite a few around Oklahoma. An So far this is the best in the state. The only thing wrong with this is place is it is so small that is is hard to get in and get a seat. But what I hate most is it is not open nights or weekends. I live and work out of Oklahoma City so I have to make a special trip to get my fix. My counter neighbor was having the Meatloaf special. It looked really good and he said it was but the burger is so good and my trips are so limited I may never get to try it.

  • Cara says:
    May 6th, 2009 at 4:30 pm   

    So today was the day I had my first Nic’s experience and I must say I was not the least bit disappointed! By some act of fate my friend and I, who had also heard of this beacon of burger hope from this website, were able to snag a table just as a couple of patrons were leaving. Timing is definately crucial here. My motto was “Go Big or Go Home” and go big I did. I loaded it up, and which burger juice dripping practically down to my elbows I finished every delicious, mouthwatering bite! Can’t wait to spread the news about this jewel!

  • Jerry says:

    Stopped at Nic’s to get a burger and Guy Fieri from the Food Networks® Diners, Drive-ins and Dives was there doing a show. Be on the look out for that episode. I think they were stopping by Mama E’s and Eischen’s too!

  • mike says:
    May 20th, 2009 at 8:20 pm   

    Nic’s just kills it! That was the thickest burger I have ever attempted to eat. I think a lot of burger joints go the opposite route (ron for example) Great, the meats hanging over the bun – but I want a large chuck of beef in my mouth with every bite.

    Nic’s is awkward for first timers but you learn quick to wait your turn, and let the staff ask the questions.

    I love this place, always crowded for lunch, but there is often room at breakfast. Best pancakes ever. the Western omelette is fantastic and more than anyone should eat for breakfast. Also, Nic is a great, friendly guy. Cash only BTW.

  • Craig says:
    June 3rd, 2009 at 3:45 pm   

    Ok! Not to beat a dead cow, but as my lunch partner said “this is best burger i have ever eaten in a restaurant”. So not to change my already coined phrase, you can’t beat this dead cow! The service was great! We were fortunate to get one of the 4 2-seat tables in the joint and even coming around the bar was no problem for Nic and his grill hand and they always were checking on us and determining how we wanted our burger dressed. Great Place! We will try their breakfast next!

  • Andrew says:
    June 3rd, 2009 at 10:22 pm   

    I think Craig put it best when he said, “you can’t beat this dead cow.” I agree Kevin, the burger in 4U Cafe at the gun range is pretty good. I’m not sure it’s a close second, but it’s a good burger.

    Went to Nic’s for Breakfast this morning with my two sons. We are all veterans (very satisfied and teary-eyed) of Nic’s lunch. Breakfast was awesome!!! My youngest (15) and I had the bacon and egg (over easy) plate. My oldest (16) had the french toast with a side of bacon. The bacon and egg plate comes with bacon, 3 thick slices, 2 eggs, about a pound of hash browns and texas toast, one big slice cut in half. The french toast is three thick slices of texas toast cut in half and doused with powdered sugar and syrup on the side. None of left hungry or disappointed. Th e bill with a 1 coke, 1 OJ and 1 coffee was just $18.
    Nic’s rocks for Bfest and Lunch!

    Food Network’s Guy of “Guy’s Big Bite” taped at Nic’s about 2 weeks ago. Nic said the show will air in September. Way to go Nic! Your 15 minutes of fame is here!

    I just hope a bunch “foodies” don’t watch it and adopt Nic’s. He’s too busy already.

    Grill on Nic!

    I’ve been awakened. We arrived at 10:45 am and snagged the last table and one bar stool. Within ten minutes people were lined up outside. I felt like I was in fish bowl! But never mind all that; it was FABULOUS. I had the cheeseburger combo. A guy at the bar had porkchops and he almost lost one to me because they looked so good. His special today was fried chicken, but everyone that I saw was ordering burgers. Does anyone know his hours? I didn’t see them posted. I was thinking it might be less crowded for a late lunch as opposed to an early lunch at 10:45.

    No word to say I much I miss going to Nic’s Grill…

  • Randy OKC says:
    July 6th, 2009 at 4:48 pm   

    July 3rd, Federal holiday, so the whole family got to go to Nic’s for breakfast. This was a treat because we have never been to Nic’s as a group. Mom had never been to Nic’s before.

    I had the mushroom/sausage omlette. 1 whole portabella mushroom chopped, 3 sausage patties chopped, 3 eggs and cheese. It came with toast and the best hashbrowns ever cooked. It was enough food for 3 people. I was feeling a bit patriotic and killed it all myself. It was not an omlet for a nervous person. Very tasty and very satisfying in a gluttonus kind-of-way.

    My son had the ham/cheese omlette. It had huge chunks of grilled ham and lots of cheese. He loved it.

    Youngest and Mom and the eggs and bacon. They left very satisified and impressed. Mom was the weak link though, she didn’t eat all of her eggs. Wimp!

    The next time we go, we are going for lunch and I am trying the special of the day. Be it pork chops, meatloaf or fried chicken. This is the only food at Nic’s I haven’t tried. The pork chops look huge and tasty.

  • Donald says:
    July 16th, 2009 at 11:41 pm   

    Doesn’t get better than this breakfast or lunch, just go early if you want daily special it sells out quickly and for good reason,delish!!

    July 19th, 2009 at 9:12 pm   

    I have to agree with Kevin … Nic’s has great burgers… I also have to agree with Kevin.. I’ve been to the 4U Cafe locagted inside of H&H Gun Range several times and in my opinion, their Onion Burgers (there’s something different about their onions) made with fresh hamburger meat and fresh cut fries put them right up there with Nic’s.

    I’ve tried them all and I believe the great onion burger war comes down to Irma’s and Nic’s if I had to choose I would go with Nic’s although it’s very close between those two. As far as the rest of the menu goes it’s no contest Nic’s wins big time!!!!

    Lots of comments on Nic’s but this has to be said, try the fried chicken (thursdays) I swear its like mom made how they could have room for a cast iron skillet big enough I don’t know ( I’d love to see the back room in action) but it sure tastes like skillet fried chicken to me. Huge pieces and they still get cooked through but not over cooked. Wonderfully seasoned very tasty!!!

    I watched the 3D show on TV last nite Nic and his asst. did a great job very pro. I couldn’t wait to get back to see if I could even get in and got there at 1030 was able to squeeze in and get a table. Ordered the pork chops, wonderful, wife had a burger and fries it was great as always. By the time we had finished there was quite a line of people and many were talking about the show,it should improve business for them for sure they certainly deserve it they are hard working guys and very nice also my wife and I wish them all the best and look forward to seeing them again soon!!

    I finally got around to eating breakfast at Nic’c I wasn’t disappointed. I ordered the Western Omelet it was great. You had better be hungry if you order an omelet they are huge, the pancakes looked good too,maybe next time I’ll try one, or wait maybe I’ll go for lunch instead and get a burger, no the cfs,no maybe the special, decisions… decisions !!

    Went with my sister (a burger lover) because she had seen it on the food network. We were in Oklahoma for the day. I can live a year with-out eatting a burger, but after Nic’s I cannot stop thinking about that cheeseburger. I have to go back
    I am obsessed with it. Worth a trip from Fort Worth. Would like to know the hours though. Kincaids in Fort Worth is our most famous burger but I could care less about it. Nic’s is the best I have ever eatten!

    Well, finally made it to Nic’s, wow, it lived up to the hype. We only had to wait about 30 mins, as soon as we stepped in the door, Nic took our order, a few mins later we got a table. It was perfect, maybe the best burger I have had in OKC, ESPN on the flat screen, very nice. I was really impressed and will definitely plan and going back. Something not mentioned too much are the fries, they were outstanding. A couple behind us in line said they have had the chicken fried steak and it is killer they said. mmmmm mmmmmmm

    Took a long lunch and tried a Nic’s burger today.

    Have to say it is among the top burgers I have ever had…. Was better than the Hodad’s burger I had in San Diego earlier this year and that was a pretty tasty burger.

    Nic and his lunch helper, sorry don’t know his name, do a fantastic job taking care of their customers though. My drink was never empty more than a few seconds and they took our order just about as soon as we walked in the door.

    I enjoyed watching the way they worked the place as much as I enjoyed the meal.

    Went to try Nic,s today and boy am I sure glad I went!! I had the chicken fried Steak with mashed potatoes and gravy with green beans. They served it with a steak knife to cut your steak but you dont need it. It was so tender and the best ive ever had! The service was excellent and i would recommend this place to anybody! GO TRY IT OUT!

    Two of us girls went today at 1 p.m. and there was still a line. As we left around 2 p.m., there were still people waiting in line. I tried the chicken fry and didn’t think it was that great. First of all, it was not the kind of chicken fried steak that I expected – one coated w/ batter and deep fried. Then I asked that my fries be crispy but they were greasy and soft. However, my colleague had the cheeseburger and she said it was good. Nic didn’t put just one slice of cheese but several. I guess if I go back the next time, it will be a plain hamburger w/ no fries!

  • KC says:
    October 2nd, 2009 at 3:37 pm   

    Overall, this was a terrific burger: fresh ingredients, a thick and juicy patty, plenty of crisp, cool fixings, and, most importantly, good tasting. When it comes to flavor, however, there’s nothing distinctive about Nic’s burger, and my curly fries weren’t cooked-through enough, which gave them a starchy, somewhat chalky, texture. That said, I encourage everyone to try this burger out at least once (especially with the thick-cut bacon and jalapenos…yummy).

  • Sean Briselden says:
    October 14th, 2009 at 8:30 am   

    I saw Nic’s on Guy’s Big Bite and just had to try it out. Being from Arkansas its a bit of a trip to try this burger out. But the timing was just right and some friends and I were headed out to Waynoka to go duning and don’t you know it, we would be passing through OKC at lunch time. So we pulled the trailer and all down to Nic’s. Parked across the street due to the big truck and trailer and really wondered about the place since it was so small. Since we got there kinda late and there was a small line but it moved quickly and we managed to sit down.

    Watching the huge burgers just simmering on the grill for what seemed forever was exciting. I got the bacon and my buddy got jalepenoes. All I can say is wow. I have never had that large of a cut of bacon before, it was absolutely huge. Tons of onions, 3 slabs of bacon, and the fries. 2 of the guys with me said they were only goign to eat half as they weren’t very hungry. They downed the hole burger!! Gotta admit, so did I. With 3 hours more driving left this burger hit the spot perfect.

    Nic, you are the man!!

    Well, I finally made it back and had the burger. OMG! It was so good and so big. I’m a big guy and I couldn’t eat all of it. We waited in line for a good 20 mins then took seats at the counter. Nic is so organized. He has 10 to 15 burgers going on the grill all the time and knows exactly which burger belongs to which customer. Jovan (sorry if I spelled it wrong) was on top of everything from refilling drinks to making sure I had my fork (the burger is too fat to fit in your mouth so you need a fork to eat it). I can’t wait now to go back and try the fried chicken. Hey Nic, you need some shirts. I would buy one if you had them.

    I made the 80 mile trip to try Nic’s yesterday, and it would have been worth a 200 mile drive. We got there early for lunch and didn’t have to wait. The burger was possibly the best I’ve ever had. I know it was the largest. Fries were great and the whole experience was wonderful. Friendliest people you’ll ever meet in that type of business. Next we’ll go for breakfast, can’t wait.

    Nic’s suks. I would’nt drive a mile to get the kind of food the Nic’s has. Nic is a green, three eyed monster that hates customers. He makes the Soup Nazi look like a choir boy. Really, he’s a mean,nasty guy. Stay away. Nic’s is in a really bad part of town too. Many people waiting in line at Nic’s end up being crime statistics. Hide your women and children if you dare to go to Nic’s. I have heard of a really great burger place though. There may even be one near you. It’s a scottish place that makes the best burgers. Mac something or other. Really good burgers. Go there. They are fast and have lots of places to sit. Just don’t go to Nic’s. Guy Fiero is a media hack and liar. Do not trust him. He has blonde spikey hair. Need I say more? No need to drive 80 miles or 2 hours to go to Nic’s. Nothing to see here folks, just move along.

    To Randy from OKC…You must own Nic’s competition. Nic and Guy are two of the nicest people on earth and his burger is the best I have ever eatten. I have been with my family many times and his customers are mostly food network junkies and in the light of day the area is just fine! His place is clean and perfectly decorated. He lives in a very nice house right behind the diner with beautiful antiques etc.

I’ll Start the year off right with Nic’s tomorrow, looking forward to seeing those guys and having some great food !

I went a few weeks ago and got a burger & fries which was also delicious! You just couldn’t put it down!

    Took several friends to Nic’s to day for a burger and none were dissapointed. This is the single best burger in an area full of great burger joints. In my humble oponion the breakfast is better. This is my son’s pregame breakfast during football season.

    My wife and I arrived around 12:30 pm on Friday and waited outside in line nearly 40 minutes.

    Good food brings out the best in most people and this was the experience I want to share.

    Several regulars where waiting in line in front of us and behind us and they where all polite, engaging, and positive about the experience we where about to have.

    Not only was the food great, but talking with the regulars, Nic, and his assitant added to the enjoyment. This is a great overall experience for anyone from out of town.

    So, if you can get there before 2:00 pm, stop by, it is worth it.

    Absolutely the best burgers in not only Oklahoma City, but all of Oklahoma. I look forward to the times I have a day off during the week so that I can manage to have a Nic’s burger. I have friends driving from the Tulsa area just to have a burger at Nic’s. My only desire is that he was open longer hours or on weekends. I know a man needs his rest and no one can do it like him, so, I understand the schedule even if I don’t like it.

    So, I have gone to Nic’s several times now and believe, 100% best burger I have ever had. I think of other burger places and just get sad I have to eat there. Great service and the burger is just as good if you have to get it to go and eat back at the office. By the way, the office will want to clock you for torturing them with the BEST BURGER EVER!!!!!!

  • Todd says:
    August 21st, 2010 at 10:35 am   

    It’s what all other burgers wish to be. Big, Juicy, Tastey. If it’s not the best burger in the city then what is? I’ve had burgers in lots of places and It’s the best I’ve had. My only complaint, the hours. It’s near impossible to go there when I work in Stillwater. I wish he was open nights or weekends, at least occasionally.

    They could call the place Squeeze in, because every time I’ve been that’s exactly what I had to do. Find a hole next to the wall and stand there waiting on a spot to open up. They took my order and by the time a spot opened my burger and those great fresh cut curly fries were ready. It’s fun to watch the ballet in front of the grill as they prepare food for a crowd. Everything I’ve seen come out of the kitchen has looked wonderful but I get there so in frequently I always order the Burger and Curly Fries.

  • Paula says:
    September 29th, 2010 at 12:46 pm   

    Just tried Nic’s for the first time today, as I had some cash on me and a craving for a burger. I tried to take other’s advice and call in my order first, but only got the fax machine each time I called (*around 10:40-10:45am). I remembered that if you wanted to get a seat you needed to be there before 11am, so I dashed over & got the last barstool at 10:58am. (*It worked!)
    I ordered my meal “to go” as I needed to get back to the office, but, didn’t leave until 11:30, so as mentioned many times, do not come here without expecting to take a long lunch. While I waited, I saw many of the in-diners eating their burger with forks, and leaving quite a bit of bun left in their basket – that’s because the burger is so juicy (& fries put in the basket straight out of the fryer basket) that things get soggy. Unfortunately, this fact makes getting a burger basket “to go” not a very good idea. By the time I made it back to the office the bottom of the bun was inedible & couldn’t even be picked up, along with the lettuce, tomatoes & pickles that were on it, too. The top part of the bun was better, but the half that had had fries resting on it was heading down the soggy path, too.
    As for the taste of the burger, it was really good. Big, juicy & the cheese melted on it just right. The curly fries were good, but, def would have been better eaten in-house, as they were not crispy at all when I was back at the office to eat. Note: the fries were not seasoned when they came out of the fryer, so no worries about them being oversalted before you taste them.
    Overall, I’m glad I took the time to try Nic’s out, but I will def make a point to plan to sit and eat my order there when I decide to eat there again.

    The only problem (and it’s a minor one) is that I pretty much smell like Nic’s for the rest of the day.

    I always get there at 10:45 or so, but I hope to get there for breakfast one day.

I am afraid he didn’t agree with all the rave reviews – his burger was too greasy for his tastes & he has no desire to go back & try again.

    @Debbie – On the DDD episode Nic said that he uses 80/20 ground beef. Maybe your husband missed that part.

    I visited Nic’s today and the wait to get in was about 45 min. We got there at 11 am. The burger really wasn’t that great. You have to eat it with a fork because the bun falls apart on you and the fries are extremely greasy. The only thing I liked about the place was the atmosphere. I think Bunny’s has a MUCH better burger for about the same price.

    Good burger, inexpensive, and great svc, I loved Nic’s. Echoing some of the previous made comments, Nic and his staff are amazing! Rarely do I have the chance in speaking casually with the owner but take a seat at the counter and you will.

    The hours are perfect. If Nic’s going to be open longer, it will lose its allure and mystique.

  • Rich says:
    December 4th, 2010 at 9:20 am   

    Loved the Burger and the price! I would like to try the other food on the lunch menu and breakfast in the near future also! My only complaint is when during lunch time, Nic’s helper is handles the raw meat with no gloves on his hands then goes and grabs a cup with one hand and the ice scoop with the other then fills it with a drink of your choice, hands you your drink and the ice scoop goes back in the ice chest. Needless to say I will do without anything to drink on my next visit.

    Can’t say enough great things about their burgers & fries. The onions are perfect, melty cheese and those curly fries. I head there early to avoid the rush, and can never finish my whole meal, and am too full to eat dinner, but it’s worth it!

  • Vinh says:
    March 29th, 2011 at 11:41 am   

    Adding to what others have said, it is the best burger in town. It is a little on the greasy side, so your bottom bun is gonna act as a sponge for grease.

    The only other dish I’ve had is the chicken fried steak, which taste homemade, but not exceptional. The fries are also a little disappointing in that they’re not that seasoned and do not have the crispy texture. The burger is filling enough so that you don’t need fries anyways.

    Since I had the time today, which I don’t usually have, I finally decided to “brave the elements” and eat at Nic’s during the height of Lunch Hour. I was parked and in line by 12:05PM, and within 25 minutes had my hands wrapped around one of their sublimely sloppy, wonderfully delicious hamburgers, with bacon, Swiss, grilled onions, mushrooms and everything else they slap on to make the experience heavenly!

    Nic’s serves the type of food the proverbial Condemned Man would order for a Last Meal before being sent into the Great Beyond. Thankfully, I’m a Law-Abiding Citizen, so I get the chance to repeat this experience, hopefully often and soon! I’ve found Nic to be one of the nicest guys to captain a grill-top, and his able assistant kept my drink full. The place was crammed full of friendly folks, although I believe the place would erupt if someone cut into the line. That’s understandable, since Nic’s serves the kind of burgers that are worth fighting for!

    Nic offers knives to those who want them, but you still need to prepare to get your hands dirty–these burgers are formidable in size. Unfortunately, the place doesn’t have a bathroom, so don’t overtax your bladder! Finger bowls are a throwback to a gentler time, so I used ice from my cup to get my hands clean before heading out after getting my belly full. I’d recommend removing your jewelry, wearing short sleeves, and any other advance preparation necessary before diving into this Burger Nirvana! In closing, I want to express thanks for this opportunity to write a Nic’s Review, since it’s probably the only way I can keep awake at the office this afternoon–talk about food that causes Nappy-Time!!

    My wife and I had a “staycation” last week and we made it “EatAroundOKC week”. Thank you for your reviews of Nic’s Grill. We got burgers to go and they were wonderful. I love that a hardworking independent is doing so well!

    Tried to eat there after traveling from Dayton OH. Disappointment ! Arrived at 8 am to find the doors locked. With a CLOSED sign in the window. We left there and moved up the street a block to The Hungry Frog. They had an excellent breakfast at a resonable price. Later in the day while shopping we were told that Nick’s opens on a random basis.

Please tell us what you think.
