The staff was horrible and the food was disgusting!! We found our own seat at a dirty table the food came out at different times.The waitresses were short with us and rude.The sauce and meat in the food were awful my aunt only ate two bites of her food. The water and drinks were nasty! Save yourself and eat somewhere... More

Went to Nico's this weekend, and were surprised and saddened to see that it was under new management. Yes, they are undergoing renovation which we understood, but missed the comfy private booths and sat at austere cheap cafeteria-style tables. The new waitstaff didn't have a clue. Our salads arrived so far after the main entre that we called salad desert.... More

Recently had lunch at Nico's and the food was OK but it seriously needs a good remodel and cleaning. Heard the long-time owners were retiring so perhaps new managment will invest in the restaurant.

We had a group of about 25 folks on a Thursday night (we did have a reservation, I think). Our tables were ready when we arrived and the service was excellent. They keep the chips and salsa flowing all evening. The food was served quickly and was hot, looked very appetizing and tasted great. I heard almost everyone within earshot... More

Nico's is one of those places that has been around a long time. I drove by it for years until I heard someone at work talking about it. My wife and I tried it and were impressed by the quantity of food you get for the money. I've eaten a lot of Mexican food and this is certainly not the... More
