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

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

Nick's gyros are the best! Definitely not a fancy place, but if you want great tasting food at a great price, I recommend Nicks. I would recommend asking for the taco sauce to kick the meat and cheese pita up to the next level. I am sure the food is loaded with calories, but it is delicious and worth a... More

I was hugely disappointed by my experience at Nick's Gyros. It was fairly slow when I stopped in, but stood at the counter for five minutes before any of the staff took my order. The staff member at the register looked at me three times while she put away food stuffs but never recognized I was waiting to order. Finally,... More

It is good but can be a little greasy....guess that's the way it is supposed to be. I usually get the chicken.

When I crave the meat and cheese I just have to get one. The homemade pita is wonderful and the corn nuggets yummy. I just have to tell myself to ignor the lack of a clean environment. I don't see how they can pass health inspections.
