“Oompah!!!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

One of my favorite places to eat. Whether you are looking for a great breakfast, lunch or dinner...Nick's truly has it all. The staff are all friendly and fun. The owner remembers all of his regular customers and spends time with each as he makes his rounds, insuring everyone is happy with their meal!

A combination of Greek, Italian and American fare...there is something for everyone.

“No frills diner with great food”
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”
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!”
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!
