“Cheap. Fast. Good.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

I order from here all the time since its open 24/7. They even deliver during blizzards and hurricanes. I've had better pizza, but the other food is always good. Its definitely my go-to for take out.

“over rated. will not be missed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Went there for a hamburger because I had heard this UWS icon was about to close. The place is dirty. The hamburger meat had some weird seasoning. Served on a dry roll.

“Delicious greasy food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Great for a stop after a night on the town; Big Nicks is convenient to the 1 stop at 79th street. You have to stop at least once for a delicious juicy burger, especially if you happen to be staying on the UWS.

“A little bit of everything.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

While this place is not going to get high marks for ambience, they have a large and varied menu, featuring what I would describe as comfort/pub food. They seem to do an extensive carryout business, and also have pizza slices available to go (very good pizza). As this establishment's name would suggest, one of their specialties is burgers. We tried a couple, and they were excellent. Located right at Broadway and 77th, stop by if you're in the neighborhood and you won't be disappointed.

“YUCKY!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

OMG the set up of the "restaurant" was completely confusing. We ordered pepperoni pizzas (2) and they were not good. I have eaten pizza all over the city and this was by far one of the worst slices I have ever had. Two slices were $12 which is soooo overpriced. They do not use gloves, the place is really small and the food was not good.
