Great little sandwich and rib place

Very good sandwiches, and ribs. The restaurant is small, but the food more than makes up for it. Also on the menu is soup, which is VERY good.

I don't think the food here could be worse if they worked at it! I ordered beef ribs and three sides. The ribs were too hot to pick up (I wonder how they do that?) and had NO meat on them.

I was really not to enthused with the way it looks, but don't judge it by its cover. This place Is great. The service is great, friendly and helpful staff. The food was great too. The portions are huge too. Only word of advice is if you are ordering a side, you may want to share it, they are huge.... More

Ribs were over cooked and dry. Sides were almost mediocre. Even the garlic bread was bad. How this place got four stars is a mystery.

Giant snow storm went through he Chicago area this week. A whole foot of now in one day loved the fact they provided delivery to the hotel. Ribs were pretty good foe delivery. I'm sure the food is much better if you are it there.

Nick's is a fast food restaurant on Route 53 in Romeoville. Since it's about two minutes from my office, I sometimes find myself picking lunch up there about two or three times a week. In my opinion, their chili is the absolute best in the world. It has a bit of a sweet taste to it, and I also add... More
