Very yummy gyros!

While the price was a little high for what we got, I would definitely go back. The outside of the restaurant is misleading since it looks sketchy. Once you're inside, you fully appreciate what they have to offer. I would like to know if they have other items on their menu other than the ones listed... read more

Nick's is a local staple that is always packed. We had lunch at the new location on 24th Street. They have an increased menu and a very interesting building. They have also added a bar and night/weekend entertainment offerings. The food is delicious and the staff was friendly. Parking and access is still limited but the facility is much larger.

If you haven't had a sandwich at Nick's you haven't had a sandwich at all. These are the best homemade gyros (bread made fresh for every sandwich when ordered) other items on the menu all make Nick's a great place to eat.

This was not a gyro. It was a step above a soft shell taco from taco bell. We ordered the "traditional". What we got was a chewy pita, dry meat, cheddar cheese, sour cream, white onions, and lettuce. I don't know where you learned to make a traditional gyro but try again.

I love it here, great food and great service. Chicken pita is my favorite. My kids love their grilled cheese. Their prices are good and they have great weekly specials.

It is definitely different than a gyro anywhere else in the country. They traditionally have the Greek cucumber sauce and feta cheese, but this place substitutes these ingredients for shredded cheddar and sour cream. Nothing wrong with changing things to cater to local tastes, but if you are expecting traditional food, you might be disappointing. We were warned beforehand so... More

I didn't want to try this, but my boyfriend insisted, and it was so good. Have been back several times since. Also a very clean place.

Love the gyros. Can modify with goat cheese. Went in large group however and all side were messed up and started eating the wrong sandwich. What a bummer.

Nick's will serve you a predictably delicious gyro! Go with the original and ask for extra sauce on the side. The meat is always tasty and the Gyro Salad is an excellent choice for a lighter option!

Like many of these restaraunts of this kind that I've visited this is a greasy spoon. Typical smallish menu with fried sides and griddle made sammiches. Atmo is non existant which is usually ok because the food is the star. My gyro meat was fried crispy and pretty dry. Pita was fresh and had a nice texture in the mouth.... More
