Great roast beef. The menu is short because their meets are that good. No better roast beef out there. I will be going back to have the roast turkey. Good drinks and beer selection to compliment the meal. Staff very nice and helpful.

Nick's Roast Beef NEVER disappoints!! Beef combo, operation, roasted hots, broccoli raab. Roast beef with provolone, bread pulled out. Family run, excellent customer service, Patty and Johnny. Seriously, I never visit home without stopping at Nick's. Best of luck in your new location!!!

Nicks has the best roast beef in town. The horse radish and peppers that come with is just the right compliment. The roast pork is also awesome. Quick service and call ahead for takeout works great for us.

What can I say Nick's roast beef sandwich is so tasty. They have this location and one in South Philly 19th and Jackson I believe. I always get a roast beef wet and I order gravy fries. The gravy fries are superb they come with slivers of roast beef mixed in with the gravy. I've eaten here so many times... More

Went to Nicks for a late lunch. Ordered the roast beef, very tasty fresh roll and spicy horseradish. My wife had the roast pork, not as happy...lots of sage...gravy fries are good, wish they had better sides...everything is fried.

I had the roast beef sandwich with broccoli rabe. It came on a large kaiser-type roll on a styrofoam plate barely bigger than the sandwich. So presentation was a little lacking, but the flavor more than made up for it. It was juicy, tender, and absolutely delicious. Good fries, too. The atmosphere was casual and fun, and service was very... More

My family grew up in the "original" neighborhood in South Philly near Nick's first location at 20th & Jackson Street. As much as it pains me to say (a loyalty thing), the Springfield location of Old Original Nick's Roast Beef is just at spectacular and untouchably delicious as Nick's South Philly! We had one sandwich with "the Ends" (all the... More

Anytime you're in the mood for a good meal, go to Nick's! They have one of the best roast beef sandwiches. The waiters/waitresses are excellent at keeping your cup refilled. Go to Nick's!

Let's be frank, this is not fine dining. Nick's is a down and dirty local joint with a limited, but excellent, food selection. They usually only have a few beer choices, but you should drink Yuengling here anyway! :) The roast beef, turkey and pork 'combo' sandwiches are the main attraction, especially when coupled with their gravy fries and the...
