Since its founding in 1976, Vick’s Famous Hamburgers has slung sizzling burgers between toasted buns alongside golden fries and fizzy soft drinks. Each of its Corpus Christi locations harken back to drive-thru days of yore with hand-painted lettering or portraits of hamburgers and fried chicken illuminated by buzzing neon signs. In the bustling kitchens, chefs hand-bread fish and fry white and dark meat chicken, tucking them into baskets with fries or between hearty sandwich buns. Staffers hand burgers piled with chili, mushrooms, cheese, and other toppings and bubbly root-beer floats though walk-up and drive-thru windows, ready to sate appetites on Vick’s outdoor patios or the nearest Autobahn.
