This place was hopping!! I managed a seat at the bar. otherwise, expect a wait. I had the Bacavo burger!! It was a two handed delicious mess!! That's a good thing in my book. I had to cut it in half, and once I started, I couldn't put it down until the half was done, lest I go thru a... More

We love the burgers at Nicky Rottens, freshly prepared and cooked to our specification. The sides were plentiful (actually too many fries). Sitting outside is a treat, avoiding the TV's inside.

We stopped by for Lunch, Wife had a salad she really liked... I don't remember what it was, because I had one great Pastrami & Swiss with grilled onions sandwich... just about perfect... because nothing is perfect... go for the food and stay for people watching. It's near the bay and loots of action on the street

This is a great place for burger and meeting with friends. Our second trip here, nice views if you get the right seat. Only drawback is sharing the silverware at the outdoor seating.

Had a late lunch at the bar. Tables had a 30 minute wait at 130p on a Thursday. Service was prompt and friendly. Wings and salads hit the spot.

I highly recommend the Stinky Burger. It's not on the menu anymore but they'll make it if you ask nicely. If you can sit at the bar or in Laurels section. She's the best bartender and server you could imagine!

Approximately a 25 minute wait on a Friday, but it was worth it. Huge tasty burgers and plenty of sides to choose from. Several taps and bottle selections for beer. I didn't care for the Wasabi sauce that came on the side for the fried zucchini, but hey, that was a personal choice. Service was excellent though and the drinks... More

This wasn't our first choice but it had a shorter wait. The menu is not extensive but if you are looking for a place to have burgers or fish tacos and a local San Diego brew this is a good choice. I gave this place high marks for service in part because the waiter was able to produce separate checks... More

Turned up for a late lunch - we were hungry. We were seated quickly and had very attentive service throughout our visit. Had the shrimp tacos - excellent, followed by burgers and fish and chips. Huge portions of very tasty food. Felt absolutely 'stuffed'

Lots of tvs for game day. Good beer selection of local craft beers. Burgers are hige. Only 3 stars bc while the burgers were big they were just ok on flavor. Pros: Lots of tables and tvs... We had no wait as opposed to the 75 min wait at places right down the street. Good staff. Good value for Coronado.... More
