Fresh, Juicy, Delicious and HUGE – One of the best hamburgers I have ever eaten! This is a hand made 1 pound burger. I saw other people eating other fare such as beef and dogs, but I wont' waste the experience on nothing less than that burger. The people are friendly, great service and it just has that home town feel, One of my very favorite places to go eat and chill with family and friends
VERY DRY & TASTELESS BURGER – WE HEARD THAT THERE BURGERS WERE GREAT. WE WENT THERE TODAY, TO TRY THEM. WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY. THE BURGERS WERE DRY & TASTELESS. THE BUN WAS HARD AS A ROCK. THE GRILLED ONIONS WERE OVERCOOKED. MY WIFE DIDN'T EVEN LIKE THE PICKLES. I HAD A DOUBLE 1/4 LB-ER AT Mc D'S LAST WEEK. IT WAS 5 TIMES BETTER THAN NICK'S BURGER & IT COST LESS THAN $4.00.
burgurs as big as your head – basic old clean bar with a great burger
Let's Get The Facts Straight – Lets try and set the record straight about Nick's....On 5-5-11 a negative review was posted about the owners because Karen & Bob were let go....I dont know the reason why they are gone.....On 5-6-11 we get 4 reviews praising the new owners and staff...In the following days we get more positive reviews about the new staff and negatives about Bob & Karen....Obviously someone didnt like the review from 5-5-11 and a flood of fraudulent reviews followed the neagative one....After awhile hardly any reviews are posted.....Anybody with a brain can see what happened here.......I will give my opinion on Nick's.....I have never had a bad burger there and yes there are better burgers but its more than acceptable.....I was a fan of Bob & Karen and was sorry to see them go....There is a review that said that the previous bartender[Bob] was unfriendly....Nothing could be further from the truth...The new manager wasnt very friendly the few times i went in there after that but i havent been going there that much....I went in for a drink during the car show and he never waited on us so we left....The following time i went in there was a awful sewer smell so of course i didnt stay ....The biggest downer of them all is that the prices have been raised TWICE this year in a bad economy...A bag of Cheddar Fries that were less than a $1 are now over $2...The Burger that was $6 is now $8... The Burger is pretty good but not worth the money anymore in my opinion....Im not telling anyone to avoid the place but it was a much friendlier atmosphere under the old manager....
Yozza! Thats A Great Burger! – Say this little tavern on Chicago' Best the other day, and I am a big guy that likes big cheeseburgers. So why not give this a try? My brother and I made the trip to Lemont and they were having a car show right in front of Nicks. We sat inside, and they were packed! I can see why. DELICIOUS, DELICIOUS, DELICIOUS. We are going back this weekend. Did I Mention DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!
Have to Feed the Crave! – When you crave a Nick Burger, you have to feed the crave. Went last night and geez it was so good. I admit, I was kinda doing the boycott thing because the old manager was let go. But I must admit, I was part of the problem myself. They were so nice, letting me drink and eat all night for $5.00, so I felt obligated to leave a large tip. I truly thought they were the owners, and when I found out they were not, I am embarraseed, I should have known better. When a long time business goes out, because the employees are helping themselves, it is all of our faults, Long live Nicks and all of the Lemont Business's
especially in these difficult time.
Not worth the money – Paid 8 bucks for a very overcooked burger. Didn't even come with fries, just attitude. Don't waste your time.
Took a pass – We went to the first car show of the year tonight and as we were walking by Nick's we saw they were cooking food outside by a dumpster. Gross! We chose Lemont House instead - it seemed more sanitary!
COLD BEER - GOOD FOOD – LOVE the new staff at Nick's. Friendly and ready to serve you. Can't beat the burger either. Cooked just how you want it and no attitude! The upgrades from the previous owners too were long overdue and look great. Look forward to the Wednesday car shows and a buger and cold beer.
Delicious! – Went in with a few friends on Friday Night. The place was packed. We thought we would have to wait forever to get our order taken and our food to our table. The new staff did not miss a beat. Order was taken promptly and our food was served in a timely fashion. Every order was exactly the way we ordered it, and it tasted so good! Will be back to Nicks!
