“No frills diner with great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Nick's has 2 locations in Surprise and they are both good. Greek food is definitely their specialty, but the menu is very diverse. It's a great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Portions are generous, service good and prices reasonable. Nick's is a popular place with locals.

“meh. village inn in disguise”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

Cute little place that tries to be a small-town diner in a big cuty strip mall. Seating is limited. The kids portions are huge and my kids loved their food. Mine was blah (I had the veggie omelet). My older daughter ordered the eggs benedict and I tried a bite - terrible. The eggs were overcooked and the center solid. The big slab of ham was gross. The sauce tasted like it was made from powder mix. My husband had the waffle and he left half of it on the place - said it tasted bland. On the upside, the waitress was very friendly and tried hard to make up for the shortcomings of the food. Overall, not a terrible place but if it's this kind of bland processed food you want, try Village Inn, same stuff for cheaper

“Third time-not the charm!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Originally taken here by a friend who raved about Nick's. Ate-felt sick.
Went back for another meal to give it a second chance- Ate-felt sick.
Friends wanted to stop for a meal. I was uneasy about going. Ate-felt sick.
Won't be going back ever!

“Pleasant surprise in Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

I was taken to Nick's by a friend to have breakfast. How good can breakfast be? It was better than good, it was great. I had hash, eggs and hash brown potatoes. It was perfect, the waitperson was polite and friendly, the place is clean and good parking. And most important, it didn't cost an arm and leg.
I took my wife to Nick's the following week and we had Gyros which are better than the ones we had in Athens. They now have a loyal regular customer.
