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

This was my first time stopping in for a sandwich and I have lived in the area for 3 years. I went with my husband and we sat at the bar. We each ordered a beer, sandwich and fries. He had the roast pork, which was very good. I had the roast beef, which was outstanding. We also had the... More

Hand carved Roast beef or Pork not hand carved using a slicer. Extremely fresh rolls, and the gravy is to die for. You wont find a Better roast beef sandwich for miles. ( many miles ) . I found a place 400 miles away that was better, only because they served the hand carved beef on a home made caramelized... 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.

It's a one-of-a-kind treat for sure - like having a philly cheesesteak or a Primani Brothers sandwich. Stop in, order a Yuengling, relax, and then order one of the outstanding sandwiches. The menu is extremely limited and that's part of the charm. Take the menu's advice on ordering - you only live once!

I love these roast beef sandwiches. Come back all the time. It's usually my husband and my stop for dinner and then the movies.
