Best Food Deal in Surprise

We've been to Nick's Diner on Reems more than any other restaurant in Surprise, mostly for breakfast. The portions are very generous, the food is better than average and the prices extremely reasonable for what you get. The Friday fish fry is also excellent. Suggest you order the regular fish... read more

Nick's has daily specials with reduced prices for those specials. They have a 3 piece fish fry every night with all you can eat fish on Fridays. They have large portions and everything is tasty. Their burgers and open-face sandwiches are large and the fries are part of the cost, which is lower than most fast food places would be... More

I really enjoyed the Greek Chicken Wrap, was able to take half of it home for another meal. My husband likes this old timey large portion type of place. Generally it is not the type of place that I like, but I have found a few good entrees that I do like so everyone is happy. There is a special... More

The food is good and they give you a large portion, The setting is simple like a mom home kitchen feel. All the windows and frames were very dirty on the three different times that I visited this place. The floors were mopped with a dirty mop which left all the floors sticky. I went through three sets of utensils... More

This was our first time at either Nick's diners. I have been wanting to try one of them for some time. Well our first impression was not good. As soon as we walked in the door our feet stuck to the floor. You could tell it had not been washed in quite some time if ever. After we were seated... More

The headline on their ad reads "Nick's Diner Where Hunger Meets Its Match". This is what you will think when you eat here. When you are being seated, check out everyone's plate as you go by. They are all filled to the brim. It is always busy at this place! My favorite dish is the Gyros Platter. You may not... More

In a little strip mall, Nicks is open for all day except Sunday.We heard they had great breakfasts. Yes they do. Try The home fries or the potato pancake. Very good. Good size portions and a reasonable price.They don't have a lot of room, so you might try and reserve a time-even for breakfast. It is easy to tell they... More

I love the breakfasts that they offer, handmade corned beef hash is a must try! Their service though can be spotty though. Mainly depends on how busy it is of course. We've had to go orders as well and have not been disappointed. The food is always hot and tasty!
