“Outstanding hot dog from a place that is Holyoke”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

My favorite hot dog, a little pricey but I would pay 5 bucks a hot dog if I had to. Homemade beans are good, pop corn is good, but the hot dogs are the star of the show. They also have soft serve ice cream good kids place to eat.

“Why the hype?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Recently tried Nick's Nest. The hotdogs were a little bland although the flavor was ok. The rolls weren't grilled or toasted which would've helped with the dog. The baked beans, advertised as "must try home baked beans" were incredibly salty, almost inedible. The clam chowder was good but not great. I will not likely return.

“Nostalgic atmosphere; great food!”

This has been a favorite since I was little and we still look forward to going here. The hot dogs are amazing, still made the same as they were way back when! Never disappointed here!

“Still very good..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Haven't been In a year but the dogs are still tasty tho its that steamed bun that makes it special. Mac salad is quite boring but the sign outside doesn't read "Nicks macaroni salad". Worth a visit if you love steamed dogs in a cool building. Great service. Fast and friendly.
