Very friendly. Hamburger and fries were excellent. Pita bread with lamb was very dry. Drooling over husband yummy burger. A lot of locals go here especially for breakfast.

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

I dined her for the first time with my daughter who goes here regularly. I had the grouper with mashed potatoes and black-eyed peas. It was tastier than I expected. My daughter had a very generous portion of chicken cordon bleu. The total cost for two of us was $20. That's cheap. The place has some cheesy Elvis memorabilia and... More

This place is home to the best breakfast in Tampa It is also very affordable and Elvis ate there, make sure you ask your server which booth Elvis sat in. Unfortunately parking is somewhat limited so make sure you get there early.

Great little diner in the north of Tampa, handily placed between downtown and Busch Gardens if you fancy popping in for breakfast before hitting the parks (which is what we did). If you're a tourist (like us) it's also a must-visit for a slice of Americana. A proper US diner, with really good breakfast. Our waitress was really friendly, and... More

Great neighborhood place, been around a long time, still putting out good food at good prices. Many Greek options on the menu along with all the standard diner fair. Small building with booth seating as well as counter. Cash only, ATM on the premises. Friendly service, local feel.

Nicko's offers great food at very reasonable prices. It's claim to fame is that Elvis ate there, and there is a booth named in in his honor. Just good food, home cooked and yummy. Breakfast is great, nothing fancy, just good and the dinner specials offer salad, soup, main course and desert. Great waffles, Gyros and sandwiches. I have to... More

Nicko's is an interesting place because it is a real dinner. It is good for a quick cheap breakfast but I have not had dinner there.
