“flint dog”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2010

This was bad. A cheap dog on a cheap bun. The chili was dry beef not chili! A Flint dog not motor city dog ,the best! Any one who likes this has never had a real Coney island!
Man, how are they getting away with this! I don't care if it's Nicks, which is, I guess some thing in Portland, the dog is bad!!

“Worst "dogs" in the world...AVOID at all costs!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2010

My sweetie loves coney island style hotdogs - Nick's are the absolute worst we've found in many years of searching and sampling around the U.S. We should have done an about-face when we walked in at lunch hour and found the place empty, but no, we stayed and regretted it. According to the waitress, "the fries are terrific!" No, they are actually undercooked, limp and greasy. Back to the dogs....tiny soggy buns covered with a spicy heap of greasy chopped hamburger - the dogs themselves just tasted bad - and undercooked. Want cheese with that? Well yes, it is a coney island dog. Look, I found some - unfortunately it was the plastic-wrap garbage that belongs in the waste....

Anyway, it's hard to figure out why our food was undercooked, unless, maybe they want to get our food out before we left!! AVOID at all costs.

Also, how did the restrooms get so filthy if no one is there?

“Nicks Coney Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2009

Loved this place. Last original haunt in Portland. The Coneys are to die for ..and they serve a beer in ice cold glasses. If there is a wait..WAIT...Its worth it.
