I do love that pulled pork.

I don't get to eat here often, because it's too far from home. However I do meat a fellow retiree here once or twice a year. Parking can get confusing because several lots run together, but if you get there for an early lunch there is no problem. I usually get the pulled pork sand witch. It's... read more

This restaurant use to be our family favorite because the ribs and chicken wings use to be Great! I'm not sure if they have a different cook or they no longer care but the food isn't as good as it use to be. While the sauce is good the ribs are very tough/rubbery and the chicken wings seemed as though... More

I stop in here now and then and the food is always simple and good, the portions huge, and the prices pretty moderate. Spare ribs here are always good. "Broasted" chicken is good, too. The entrees come with a "hot" side dish and a "cold" side, several comfy choices, I chose mac & cheese tonight and opted for the cup... More

Nikola's now only has GREAT food...you get an abundance of it. Any time that I order the dinner I can never, every finish it. I take so much home that I its enough for another meal. Now, I cannot vouch that they have many "healthy alternatives" on the menu. Its not that kind of place so I could not visit... More

I had not been to Nikolas in several years and honestly forgot they were still there. But following a Friday night basketball game and knowing I would pass them on the way back I decided to relive a memory of great bbq chicken wings. Carryout service was great, but the wings were outstanding. The carryout and inside was packed at... More

My wife and I recently went to Nikola's for a fund raiser Dinner and overall it was very good - Being a fundraiser dinner tables were a little difficult to get but under the circumstances it was acceptable. We ordered the COD dinner / Ribs and Side Salads - Overall the food was pretty good. However, like any other restaurant... More

The food is wonderful. Portions are more than generous; most customers carry out a doggy bag for lunch. Service is friendly, efficient, courteous with a smile. The chefs cook to order. Free open parking is a plus. Complementary Jazz on Thursday evenings makes for the best bang for your bucks!
