This place has awesome burgers! The Nick is no joke so come hungry. I go here once a week for lunch and love the atmosphere. It is a small bar and can be hit or miss. It is either dead or no where to room. That being said I normally go here for lunch.

Nice cozy, old fashioned tavern with a great ( very large ) burger and full service, old styled bar and atmosphere.

Outstanding hot beef sandwiches. Lots of meat, hot and juicy with a small cup of au jus and pickles.

Was on the motorcycle. Made a pit stop here. A very nice place. Food is great. I had the 1 pound burger cause I was hungry. Good stuff. Beer was good and cold. The waitresses were great and good looking too. Great place to stop during the summer when Lamont has their weekly auto shows.

Nick's is a townie bar with good beer and awesome food. No fries, just burgers, beefs, and potato chips. They also have great homemade soups. Best Patty Melt I've ever had!

Awesome burgers- enough for two- restaurant not very big but we usually get it to go. Recommend that you order ahead- takes a little time to cook

Where can you get a cheeseburger with a PBR for under 10 bucks this place. Cheeseburgers a plenty. Might have to make this place a regular hangout during happy hour when the prices are even sweeter.

First off, a disclaimer: My name is Nick, so I might have some sort of prejudice favoring a place that has my name. That being said, here is my call on Nick's Tavern. It's a quaint little old bar (it's been there since 1945, IIRC), with a tiny kitchen. It is a cozy and welcoming place to hang out after... More

This small neighborhood bar is best known for its great burgers. No fancy presentation or glitzy ambiance....just friendly service and juicy cooked to order burgers. There are other items on the menu like Italian beef sandwiches, but the burgers are king. It's worth the drive but come early as it fills up most days. I've lived near Lemont for 16... More
