I've attempted to enjoy a meal a this restaurant on several occasions, but the atmosphere wasn't conducive for it due to the oppressive heat and noise. It doesn't take many customers to cause a lot of noise because there seem to be no acoustics, no sound deadening whatsoever. On the one occasion that I managed to consume a pizza before... More

I have frequented Nick and Jimmy's and Mykonos since the owners no longer own Yanni's which had excellent food at one time. For the last five visits, I have been disappointed in the food--overcooked, dried out, tasteless. It is sad as it has been my favorite restaurant in Albuquerque and I've taken many guests to lunch and dinner there. I... More

The food was great. The restaurant is clean. The staff was quick and courteous. Our food arrived quickly and was so good. This was my second visit here and I will be coming back!

This restaurant is right off I-25. It has plenty of parking but can get pretty crowded. I ordered a mojito and it was excellent. For dinner I ordered the Lamb Shank and it was more than perfect. It was so tender, I did not need a knife. This is one of the best lamb shanks that I ever had. This... More

Accidentally got into this restaurant after spotting it while going to another place. Decided to give it a try. Do not be intimidated by the posts talking about expensive and the fact that there are no prices on the on line menu. This is a modestly priced restaurant, not high by any means... very reasonable ( however, the drinks run... More

Nick and Jimmy's is an authentic bargain. It's not that the food prices are low; they aren't. But the food is plentiful and very good. The service is excellent, and the surroundings, if not elegant, are comfortable and quiet. The menu is extensive, from Mexican to chophouse to Greek, but the specialty is clearly Greek and it's good Greek, especially... More

We went for a couples dinner and have never been there before. They sat us promptly as well as gave us a very cozy spot by ourselves. Our waiter was awesome and they brought free spanakopita appetizers and they were great. It is a puffed pastry full of spinach and cheese. We then had a basket of very nice bread... More

We decided to try this restaurant after a local hotel front desk suggested to our business associates. The restaurant was clean and the greeters were very nice. The menu offers a good selection of lunch items. The food arrived promptly and was good. We would suggest you ask the server about the special. Prices are reasonable for the business traveler....

Having tried Mykonos (another of their restaurants), we chose to try Nick & Jimmy's. Other than the appetizer & salads recommended elsewhere, our Salmon Kabob and Souvlaki entrees were a disappointment. Quite plain and seemed to lack the typical flavors found in Greek food. Certainly not even close to the Greek food found at Mykonos! We did find the decor... More
