Looked up restaurants in OKC on TripAdvisor while between Amarillo and OKC. Out of 755 restaurants listed in TripAdvisor, Nic's Grill was listed as #2. It was on our way, so we went there. NOT AT ALL disappointed we did!
It was a small out-of-the-way diner that had about 14 bar stools and a corner wee table for two. It is open for bfst and lunch, 7a-2p, M-F only. May have to stand in line 25 minutes, but well worth the wait!
I had a huge cheeseburger with a side of grilled onions and order of fresh potato curly fries (ate half). Spouse had the chicken fried steak meal with gr bns, real smashed taters, gravy and Texas toast. Steak was a tenderized cutlet with light crust. Others we saw had pork chops that looked wonderful. Fried chicken on certain day is supposed to be unbeatable.
The high quality of the meat and fresh sides really sets this place apart. Nic and his helper were behind a counter where two of them hardly had enough room to pass by each other... Regardless, their service was efficient and pleasant.
REALLY GOOD food with lots of local character. We would definitely go back. The Morgans
