Ordered myself the "ultimate burger combo, double" and wow that was amazing! I've never been a fan of mushrooms, but this burger may have changed my mind!

Just my opinion but this was just a burger after work and it was nothing special, not bad just not memorable. Price wasn't bad and fries were good. I went here because it was within walking distance of where I was staying.

I have driven by Vick's burgers for over 10 years now and finally I decided to stop in. This place has been around since 1975 and it looks like it. Nothing fancy at all, but it's like an old fashioned drive in. For $8.65 I got a bacon cheeseburger, small fries, and a bottled Dr Pepper. The food was fast... More

On my never ending quest to find a delicious hamburger, I tried Vick's Famous Hamburger's. I had a burger with bacon and veggies and it was delicious. Is it the best, no but very very good. It was fresh, hot and worth the wait. The fries were a little undercooked for my taste, but nicely prepared. The vanilla shake was... More

Just like the title says, Vicks is pretty good food and I believe it's a Corpus staple. If you are in a pinch or you don't feel like waiting in line at What-a-burger, then scurry on down to Vicks.

We've been eating here for years and truly enjoy the food. The burgers, chicken, and tacos are all excellent. The only issue I have is that the club sandwich literally has one extremely thin piece of ham on it. Don't get me wrong, the sandwich is still good, but they have really started skimping on the ham. Disappointed me because... More

I don't know why this joint is not everywhere. It's the best burger in corpus, I wish they had this closer to where I live. I eat here at least twice a month only because it's far.

Everything was made fresh. I had the chili burger and fries. Fries tasted fresh cut. Best chili burger I've ever eaten.

Great tasting fresh made hamburger with fresh toppings. Similar taste of 5 guys but 1/2 the price. Good fries and sweet tea also. Not good in bad weather as the seating is a canopy type building. For 6 bucks i really enjoyed the place, Sign says open since 1976!

Thank ty b
