Nicko's is a neighborhood diner with old fashioned appeal. To say that the locals eat here is an understatement. During peak hours you can expect to wait on a table for 15 minutes or more, but it's worth it. The sandwiches are delicious, especially if you order them on Cuban bread, and come with... read more

In our quest to find local restaurants in the Tampa Bay Area, we were told about Nicko's. Ys was everything mentioned and then some for this diner. Martha, our waitress, has been working here for years and a very welcoming hostess. If you are looking for that hometown cooking, you must visit. You might have to wait for a table... More

Nikos is a small diner in Seminole Heights. Great cheap breakfast with huge portions. Don't order too much, they serve the food on big platters. Service is attentive and friendly. The atmosphere is authentic 1950s diner. Check out the "Elvis Booth" where Elvis ate after a Tampa gig. Overall it's an A+. I've been here dozens of times and they... More

A really lovely diner. The atmosphere was great, and the staff was helpful and friendly. The sides were a bit lack-luster but the mains were delicious. If I lived down the street it would be my local breakfast stop.

If you are ever in Tampa Nickos is a must. Everything is perfect Americana Diner. Nickos own care for this gold mine has made it remain a "really cool" place to go to eat or just a cherry coke or an excellent cup of coffee. Do yourself a favor. Try this little diamond in the rough. It's a blast from... More
