“Great burger & wings. Nice sports bar.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

Nice sports bar in busy section of town, but food and service were good. I had the Teriyaki wings which were delicious and the Maui Wowi burger was good too. I had ordered it medium but it came closer to well done. Almost all the burgers ordered in our party came to the table cooked more than how they were ordered, but were still tasty. Busy day in the bar with the Brazil-Mexico World Cup game going on, but tolerable.

“Good burgers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

We had lunch at Nicky Rotten's recently and it wasn't a bad experience, however it wasn't super memorable, either. The burgers WERE good - I had a peppercorn burger with grilled onions, and it was well prepared and tasty. My wife ordered a burger that came with bacon, and her bacon wasn't really done well. She did say that that burger was juicy and tasty though.

I got talked into the garlic tater tots, and while they were good, I didn't think that they were anything special, and probably not worth the extra $3 to get them. I didn't finish them in any case.

The beer was good and cold, and not overpriced, considering the premium location of the restaurant on Coronado. I also appreciated the fact that many of the burgers were priced exactly the same - I like this because you are more likely to choose what you want, as opposed to what is the better perceived value. It doesn't cost the restaurant a ton of money to add an onion ring, or grilled onions or mushrooms, and I always feel like I'm overpaying for stuff like that, so good on them for the pricing strategy.

Would I go back? Yeah, I would - no complaints. However, I could be easily convinced to go somewhere too, so while it was good, it just wasn't memorable. I'm sure at some point I'll give them another go when I get back to Coronado!

“Cool atmosphere and good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

It is a casual bar and its menu offers salads, burgers, nachos, sliders, etc. Although it is frequented by tourists since it is in Coronado, it is a favorite of locals.
We liked it so much that we went there twice for lunch in one week!
