Bacon,eggs,toast,potatoes is our favorite, Have had the pastrami which is good. Small but worth the wait to eat in or out. Or take it to go and sit at the beach or in the nearby park/greenbelt. Great service every time.

We have traveled vastly, and done burrito tasting along the coast and beyond, nothing truly compares. Perhaps it is a taste associated with the fondness of my Dad who introduced my family and kids, but we almost always stop here or the Los Alamitos location on our trips to the area.My kids love these burritos, so do I. They are... More

I recently came here with a group of 5 friends for breakfast. The service was friendly and the breakfast burrito was great! It is a casual, low key restaurant right next to a great nursery. The seating area leaves a little to be desired, but overall a great experience.

Breakfast burritos are on the small side but very tasty. Deli sandwiches are also a little skimpy. I do not think I would go back despite the fact that the food was of good quality.

The sandwiches are SO fresh & tasty (and huge!) the burritos are just as good! Super busy during lunch hour so call ahead if you know what you want....my only (minor) issue is that the place needs sprucing up & furniture is a bit shabby...enjoy!

Husband took me here as back in his college days (10+ years ago) it was the best place for a breakfast burrito on the planet (in his words). Being super hungover I couldn't have been happier with his choice as a breakfast burrito cures all. Now it was a decent breakfast burrito and did the trick for that day but... More

AWESOME Breakfast Burrito!!! Great sandwiches and friendly service. Monday - Friday they even have a 1/2 sand and soup special. If you're in Seal Beach stop by Nick's and order up breakfast or lunch and say Hi to Nick's Boys!

Hi, I have been eating Nicks food for 38 years. His first Place was called El Macho Burrito. Which was also the name of the best item on the menu aka enchilada style and served up by Nick himself, Don't see Nick anymore but they do have one of the best Breakfast Burritos I have ever had and his sandwiches...

There was one time I had to place a business call to Australia from the US. The guy on the line started chatting with me while we were waiting for someone else, and when he heard I live in Seal Beach, he immediately said, "NIIICKS!" He loves (as almost everybody does) their breakfast burrito. Yeah, Nick's is world famous like... More

best breakfast burritos around, I am a vegetarian and they have plenty to choose from. Usually can add or subtract items to suit your need. Totally reasonably priced too.
