“Dinner with friend”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We had a late night dinner at this restaurant and it was great. We had the hamburgers and French fries. The price for hamburgers runs around $11.95 per plate. The hamburgers are huge. They have a good variety of sandwiches plus a nice menu of regular meals. They are still getting the restaurant set up for entertainment. The patio area is good with televisions well placed for sports programs. But the biggest plus is just how nice every employee was to the patrons. They are just very nice. I will definitely be a regular customer.

“Good food in East County”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Nice atmosphere and good food in this new eatery in the East County. Salads are fresh and large, fish tacos are great and their burgers are quite good. This is in the old Savanna Grill and Nicky's has redone the seating and added televisions and much better service, albeit, still a tad slow. Good, reliable place to eat and have a few drinks.

“fun, busy, tasty eats!”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

This is a welcome addition to our very limited East County restaurant selections. While it has a sports bar vibe, I saw all ages enjoying themselves. Be prepared: it is very noisy. I've made a meal twice now just from appetizers. Their fried zucchini is good but I substituted ranch dressing for the wasabi sauce. The onion rings are great but again, I substituted ranch for the BBQ sauce. While their chips are thin and delicious, the guacamole was off. 'Better left to a Mexican restaurant. I like the extensive burger selection, especially since I can substitute a veggie patty. The servers we had both times were exceptionally friendly and fun. We're looking forward to trying some of their great-sounding entrees. The parking lot is oddly configured so you may have just a bit of a walk. This would be a fun place for a party.
