“A Unique Experience”
Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

We stopped by Nick's per Trip Advisor's recommendation. We were definitely not disappointed. Basically you sit at the counter and order sliders until you can't eat any more. The form the burgers right in front of you and cook them to order. You'll have a burger in front of you within a couple minutes of ordering.

Their menu is very simple and their process is unique but streamlined and efficient. A first class operation.

Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

Ate here over fourth of July weekend. The family all loved it and the burgers are very classic but Incredible. The owner is awesome, very helpful and hands-on to make sure you get a great bag of burgers. It is a unique burger to Nicks hamburger shop.

“The best hamburger”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

If you grew up in South Dakota & visited Nicks as a child, these hamburgers were the best then & are still wonderful today. Going here is an experience & on a busy day, you will need to wait to be seated at the counter. This is not a fancy place so if you are looking for that just go elsewhere. But these hamburgers have a taste that you won't forget & you will no doubt want to return here. I wish I could have one right now!

“3 burgers and a Strawberry Shake”
Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

Most of the reviews are spot on, the burgers are small in size but made fresh and I simply love the fresh shakes.

Makes me think of the 1950's every time I go!
