I always have a few Nick's when I am in town visiting family. Its casual with an ambiance that allows for conversation and touching base with the locals. Menu is basic and informal, but tasty and served quickly and with love and dedication.

If you have been or never have tried, a stop at Nick's is a must!! The burgers a simple, but fresh! Handmade milk shakes and malts, an array of pies, and always served with a smile!

Husband took me here 40-some years ago and this is the first time I've been back. We stopped for supper and had a few burgers and a chocolate and a strawberry shake. Very good. The only real choice you have is what goes on the burger. Nice and simple. The ice cream is awesome so the shakes were yummy. Glad... More

Nice burgers and good chocolate shakes. Burgers are a bit small for the price a double is about the size of a normal burger. tasty and good though.

Nick's is one of the places we always take our visitors when they come to town. Hamburgers only: two pads or one. Simple toppings with pop, chips and milk shakes. While on your turning stool, watch the locals interact with one another at the counter, or take your meal outside and watch the street activity at a table. Simply relaxing!

Don't get me wrong.... Burger was very tastey. Fun to watch it made in front of me and laid down on my paper at my counter stool. Full beefy taste of hamburger on bun was nice. But can one really say it is the best place in town??? Pleasent bright diner atmosphere seated at a counter around the cooking station.... More
