Colin Farrell waited in line for a cheeseburger in Oklahoma City (video)

9:30 AM EDT on July 30, 2012

Last week, Colin Farrell appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno to promote his upcoming film Total Recall. During the interview, Colin told Jay about a recent cross-country road trip he took with some friends visiting various restaurants featured on the TV show Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. One of the stops they made was to Nic's Grill in Oklahoma City. Here's what Colin had to say about the place:

Yeah, I guess that's cool. It's always nice to see a local business get some publicity from an international celebrity. It's just too bad that the international celebrity was Colin Farrell. He hasn't been relevant for years. In fact, I don't even know why he's famous. When you think of your favorite Colin Farrell movie, what exactly comes to mind? Minority Report? Miami Vice?? Phone Booth??? Those movies are average (or terrible) at best. The only decent film I can place him in without visiting IMDB is The New World, but it was a smart and artistic Terrance Malik film so nobody in the general public watched it.

Anyway, Nic's really is supposed to make one of the greatest cheeseburgers on the planet. The thing is, I wouldn't know this because I've never tried one. Just as the place is famous for its burger — some claim it is the best ever — it's equally famous for long lines and a dining room that barely has enough seating for a small party of dwarves. And why wait in a long line for a burger in this town when there are so many other good places to visit like Johnnie's, S & B or even Republic? Seriously, what am I missing? Is it really worth it, or is Nic's over-hyped and overrated like the original Ted's on N. May? Please let us know in the comments.
