This place is a gold mine. Its mostly a take out but has the best burritos in which are made to order and you can ask them to make what ever you like. I always get the 5 alarm burrito which is hot spicy and its a breakfast one. It has chorito and potatoes and such a great flavor. Not... More

Best after surf breakfast burritos in the OC. Both the Traditional and the Junior Burrito are tasty and filling. The vegetarian with avocado is my favorite.

I've been traveling to Orange County for 10 years but went to Nick's for the first time today with a business associate. He recommended the regular breakfast burrito (loaded with chorizo, eggs, potatoes and cheese inside) and I was hooked once I took the first bite. The tortilla was warm and had the perfect texture. All of the ingredients inside... More

In keeping with my attempt to hit as many fivethirtyeight.com burrito places while in the long beach area, I came to another mentioned Cali burrito joint. I was a little skeptical of what looks to be an Italian deli serving burritos, but I'd had luck at Seoulmate in Long Beach with a Korean-inspired burrito, so I figure I'd try this... More

Nick's is a local favorite the provides very good food and quick service. Very small dining area I would suggest picking up the order and walking 2 blocks to the beach and enjoy the view.

Great place to get an amazing breakfast burrito and a bottle of ice cold Orangina. Nice little old fashion deli located very close to the pier and beautiful downtown Seal Beach. The staff is great too. Make sure that you take CASH because they don't accept any other form of payment!

I used to visit my family every year and had to have Nicks every time. It literally fills you up all day and is soooo good. You cant get anything like it here on the East Coast. Its absolutely worth the wait and is not super expensive. I highly recommend it.
