Food is always great including the Mojo Pork wrap which had great flavor! Service is always good and friendly. It's a pretty quick spot for lunch.

I came here with high expectations from some of these reviews. I thought the food was very bland and the inside cramped and could not even find a restroom or an employee to ask where one was located. The decor reminds me of a knock off from Firehouse Subs, not very original. I won't be back..

Several of us stopped by Nico's for breakfast and we were all extremely pleased. Two of us had biscuits and sausage gravy and agreed, they were wonderful. Very home made and just right. My wife had a Panne, a piece of buttered, toasted Cuban bread, and a side of grits. Others had French Toast or a bagel. We also had... More

Thankful that the rain forced us off our motorcycle trip and into a shopping center where we found this gem! Had the MOST delicious chicken salad sandwich. WOW. They actually were out of it and we waited for them to cook some more. Well worth the wait. If we are back in the area, I will try other items as... More

All the atmosphere of a High School Homeroom. The staff are unprofessional, overly casual, usually all gathered together around the central table gossiping. It's a loud crowded environment even when the restaurant is empty. The food is fresh, though many times over seasoned - VERY salty. The bread is to die for. There are positives but the service is just... More

Got a cuban type wrap to take home. It was very good as the girl said it would be. I went with her recommendation and was very happy with it. This restaurant is very nice inside. Very clean. Service was really good. They greeted us when we arrived and were very upbeat during the whole time. I will go back.... More

Nice clean place with very friendly staff. Wide selection of sandwiches and wraps. The potatoe salad I had with my sandwich was very good, fresh tasting. They have a good selection of beers and wine and outdoor seating as well. They have moved from Montgomery St to the Waynesville Plaza.

My wife, adult son, and I ate at Nico's this week while on a trip to the Asheville area (based on the reviews I read on Tripadvisor). We weren't disappointed. My wife and I had the Mojo - cuban style marinated, roasted pork... delicious, tender, and very filling. A great lunch.

My friend and I met for lunch there last week. They have moved to a new location from downtown to a local shopping center, but the food is good as always. I had the mufaletta this time, and it was excellent with a tasty homemade olive salad. They also have Cuban sandwiches, subs, reubens, hamburgers, etc., but I prefer the... More
