“Great Place to Eat a very Unique Hamburger”
Reviewed October 19, 2011

This place is a hidden gem. They have been in business since 1928. Their hamburgers are great, served with fresh baked buns. We loved their relish which is made on site. Don't miss this somewhat off the beaten path place to eat if you are staying in Brookings.

“Legendary Nick's. You haven't been to Brookings if you haven't been to Nick's.”
Reviewed July 30, 2011

Our family has been eating at Nick's since the 50's. No matter how many eating choices Brookings may offer, your trip is not complete until you have been to Nick's. It is part of local lore. Just ask anyone in a 500 mile radius.
