A Friday night at Nick's

On the plus side are lots of screens to watch sports events, beers on tap,and the sandwiches. When ordering sandwiches, get the fries with gravy. The downsides are the limited parking, noise inside, and the dining area need a good cleaning.

Very casual neighborhood joint. The roast beef sandwiches wet & loaded are killer. Must get roasted hots and horseradish piled high. Top off your meal with gravy fries and or onion rings. Yes it is too much food especially because Stella is on tap! Plan a nap. It's so worth it!

Many years ago, Nick's in South Philly was a real destination and worth the drive from the western mainline. Then, it was sold and was no longer worth the trip. I was so happy to find the original Nick's quality back in Springfield. It's a limited menu but, its all you need. My favorite is the roast beef combo overboard... More

If you have never tried a nicks roast beef sandwich you have not eaten one of the best sandwiches on the planet. I could eat these sandwiches for breakfast, lunch and dinner

Nick's is a small bar/restaurant on Rte. 420 in Springfield, PA. The menu is limited to roast beef, roast pork and a few other bar dishes. You can order with gravey, broccalli rabe, red hots, etc. They feature many kinds of beer and though we usually just get beer and roast beef, they have a complete bar. Nicks used to... More

First time I had Nick's Roast Beef, I knew I would be coming back for more. It is seriously that good. If someone were to visit me from out of town, I would let them try a cheese steak and a Nick's Roast Beef. Just thinking about it now has me craving. Nick's makes tons of roast beef, pork, and...

Simple, uncomplicated and just plain good. Tender roast beef piled high with a thick gravy that just makes this good old comfort food. Wish the place was bigger and with they offered more of a selection of cheese to go on your sandwich.
