“Nick's Tavern”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Nick's Tavern has been a mainstay in Downtown Lemont for over 20 years. People come from near and far to enjoy the huge Nick Burger. The buns are specially made to accommodate the gigantic beef patty.

“Not The Same Place as Before”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2010

Used to be a given when you went to Nick's you got a Nick Burger. Now the new manager has added more selection of cheeses, and canned mushrooms to put on your burger. But the service went way down the hill. The girl that is running the place is an old employee from the past, that the new owners must have dug up the keep things the same and real. Nothing could be farther from the truth. I do not think she has a clue. The meat tastes old, the hamburger are way too thin, the cook looks barely 18. Go back to the way it was. After all, generations have been getting this burger, why change everything? Go back to the orginal burger and replace the arrogant manager with someone who cares about the history of this town and the Nick Burger.

“Ultimate Burger”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2009

The charm of yesteryear really shines thru at the newly polished Nick’s Tavern and Restaurant.

The empty antique cash register stands guard at one end of the bar and the old cooler is still keeping the brews cold on the other end!

Their huge, juicy 1lb burgers fill up the plate. You can order chips but no fries (you wouldn’t have room for them anyway). These are the best burgers – the absolute best burgers ever. Great flavor! They also offer a dynamite au jus beef sandwich – green peppers and all! This is good eating folks!

Make sure you go soon as their Christmas village is lining the north wall while all of their other Christmas decorations are either suspended from the tin ceiling or sitting nicely behind the bar.

For lunch or dinner - Nick’s Tavern for hamburgers or a beef sandwich. This is a place I’m going to go back to - and so will you!
