Nicks pizza is awesome! Great ambiance, great service, great food, affordable prices. Excellent beer choices. We go there every 6 weeks or so with family from 3 different Illinois counties; Kane, Kendall, and Lake. This place is very accommodating for larger parties. We are usually in the range of 8-14 people. Spectacular every time we go.

We have always loved the pizza, atmosphere and friendly service at the two Nick's locations and the two related Village Pizza locations. This year Village Pizza has opted out of serving peanuts, and we have opted out of frequenting the Village Pizza on Randall Road. Although Nick's Pizza is a few miles further to drive, they now have all of... More

The atmosphere is outstanding with giant fireplace and barn surroundings. Peanut shells are OK on the floor with lots to eat before the meal. Kids love it. Adults love it.

Just okay. Struggled to give it 2 stars. Service was below average. Food was fair. Way over priced. Very ordinary.

We met for our granddaughter's 8th birthday here. The service was outstanding--both the hostess and our waitress went out of their way to make sure we all had a great time and that the birthday girl had special attention. Our food was average this night, however our sons eat here often and do love the pizza.

Nick's is a fun place to go eat. I like the peanuts they have on the table. The food is good. They have good appetizers and pizza.

Getting to go to Nick's is a real treat for my family; the kids love the arcade games, we are fans of the fine drink selection, and everyone enjoys throwing their peanut shells on the floor. The staff is always nice and in spite of the shells the restaurant is clean and well-maintained. The real star is the pizza; the... More

Great pizza and a nice atmosphere. Pricing is average for pizza, but quality was excellent. We enjoyed our experience.
