Started out right with an enthusiastic hostess and followed by prompt and polite server. I wont blame her for getting my order wrong (hold the tomato and lettuce) ...but that was fine because I was feeling a little warm anyway and the ice-cold tomato (ick) and ice-cold iceberg lettuce as an utter disappointment. The bun was boring and my burger... More

We enjoyed the décor & peanuts on the table. We had great service from Amanda. We did not enjoy the pizza. Their large pizza is only 14 inches for the average price of a 16 inch plus. There wasn't much cheese on it and the sauce was very bland. It tasted like plain tomato sauce out of a can. The... More

This a very casual and cool place where peanut shells fly while you wait for the pizza. It's a thin crust pizza place and is very good. It offers the usual Italian cuisine and the prices are reasonable. The wait staff is friendly and professional. Well worth the visit.

I'm from east coast and I have been testing all pizzas in Elgin area to find something similar to back east. I don't think I will find that type pizza in the west suburbs of Chicago. Nick's rated much higher than all the competitors in the area. The pizza is "tavern style"--crispy crust and very little sauce and a lot... More

Lots of families here. And Nick's is definitely for families. The peanuts are everywhere. The pizza is tasty. The beer is cold. And the service is excellent. The staff at Nick's does everything in their power to make your visit comfortable and enjoyable. Even though it is large and busy place, we never felt like we waited long for food... More

Love the beer nuggets! Best appetizer. Pizza is always very good. Whether it's the taco pizza or margarita or anything in between. Very good...crisp crust...love the sauce.

We had all 6 of our grandchildren one Sunday afternoon, and my hubby and I decided to try Nicks pizza since the kids wanted pizza. Pizzas were fresh and hot and good when they got to our table. Waitstaff was very friendly considering we had 6 young ones with us that could not decide what they wanted to drink and... More
