My mother and I went for a Sunday dinner. There was a crowd, but we able to be seated right away because my mother has mobility issues. We each got a combination platter with different sides. The portions of the barbeque ribs, chicken and shrimp were large so that we had enough to take home for my father to have.... More

Have been going here for years for work lunches. They have a very large diverse menu of most classic American foods like broasted chicken, burgers big salads, barbequed everything. Most all meals come with a huge piece of garlic bread.

Most of the food seems like its straight out of a box. The ribs sure aren't grilled, maybe baked & the bbq sauce is very salty. If you're in the mood for great ribs, Nikolas isn't the place. If you're in the mood just to get full, you've found the place because the portions are huge. One plate or meal... More

I've been coming here for many years and it is never disappointing. The food portions are enormous and it is always good. In fact, one of my BFF's who moved out of state always wants to come here when she visits. I'm partial to the broasted chicken. It's never greasy or dry. The Texas toast is sooo good and I... More

We've been going to Nikola'a for many, many years, particularly using their take-out service. The ribs are the very best we've found anywhere. So, since we were back in town last week, after recently relocating to the South, we HAD to stop in for a rib dinner. Portions are large, so we take the advice of the servers on what... More

Everytime I am in town I eat here! Lots of food and it's good food for people who travel and leftovers to bring to hotel later. Chicken and ribs with broasted potatoes and coleslaw. Yum!

I have always been a fan of Nicole us and recommend the rehabs chicken and shrimp. I cook everything to order with specifics. The atmosphere inside can be a little noisy on nights they have live music. However their carry out service is just as good and the portions are just as large as they're inside dining. They also have... More

On point! Definately going back here! It took about an hour to be seated but it was Sunday mid to late afternoon so was during the time church gets out! They give you so much food and its so filling that you literally ended up with leftovers! The food was delicious, hot, seasoned well, placed on plates properly and the... More
