You aren't going to get complex cuisine here but this place is great for what it is. It's good for breakfast or a lunch. The service always seems to be prompt and the food is good.

Nello's is a Royal Oak staple. The breakfast is good and hearty and the prices are fair. Nello's is always on my short list for a good place to meet along the Woodward corridor.

Went to Nello's for a quick dinner before attending a church function. It was quiet, clean and the service was way above average. I had the gyro and it was very, very good, my aunt had a senior dinner and it was just the right...More
