Cute burgers and very busy. Kind of reminds me of a Krystals, but feels family owned. Burgers were simple, but tasty, but very small. No lettuce, tomato or mayo. No fries. Not sure if I would go back, but worth the stop at least once if you're traveling along I-29. Loved the downtown feel and the small town charm.

This neat little place serves yummy little hand-made burgers and several varieties of prepackaged potato chips. There is also some ice cream on the menu which is good. But the most outstanding thing about Nick's is the home-made pie. Every pie is made completely from scratch and is AMAZING.

We stopped for dinner on our way through Brookings, what a neat place. Service was fast, and food was good. Burgers, malts and homemade pie.

A local landmark in this beautiful clean community for many many years. Known for its grilled slider hamburgers, but also serves up chips, refreshments, and desserts.

They don't serve fries, but the tiny hamburgers are fabulous with potato chips. It's really fast, you literally can be in and out in 15 minutes. The have carry out also. Cash only. No tipping.

I was passing through and people on the street said it was great. It was OK but nothing special and over priced.

Great burgers in a small size. Small but cozy restaurant with full viewing access of the grill. All around sitting on stools. No fries served, chips in a bag. A little pricey for the hamburgers though. I like them!

It might be a small restaurant but the burgers are delicious. We've been eating them since they were only 15 cents each. The aroma attracts you to the place. Buy them by the bag or eat at the counter. Great burgers and a fun place to take visitors.
