The "steer meat" burgers here preceded the great burger boom, and they're not in a secret hotel location or anything, but they are fabulous: big and brown and served on huge toasted buns of pillowy softness.
So Happy To Have Wander Into Nick's Burgers! – After looking over 3-4 other menus on our stroll my kids settled on this "joint". On first look I thought "oh great" but they did have wine and beer so I figured that would take the edge off. Upon looking at the menu cover I noticed all these accolades for best-burger, so shame on me for making a snap judgment. The burgers came out perfectly cook, one medium rare and the other medium. They were juicy and flavorful and awesome! We also had a piece of pizza and a "small" salad that looked like costco's version of small! Our waitress was fantastic. We'll definitely keep this address on hand for our next trip to NYC.
best Pizza – I have been eating here for many years and I love them
Greasy Comfort Food! – Sure....
The servers are snarky
The space is at a bare minimum
The bathroom is laughable (and in the dishwashing room, I've used it ONCE, I think it's smaller than an airplane bathroom)
BUT you know what....the food is greasy & amazing! I don't go often anymore (because I'm no longer in dance class dancing it off) but their food is like comfort food. As a vegetarian they have plenty of options! (Their tofu dogs with sauerkraut,creole mustard & waffle fries is out of this world!!) Their menu has a friggin table of contents it's so big! Their pizza is amazing, my sister ordered a slice with pepperoni & the pepperonis were about the size of my palm!
Just go to enjoy a decadent meal, and don't expect much out of service and use the bathroom somewhere else.
Ohhh, might I mention if you can save room for dessert try the mochi ice cream from Beard Pappas a few stores down! Great stuff! But only if you save room of course!
DO NOT GO TO BIG NICKS – Lived on the UWS my entire life and have frequented Big Nicks, but my most recent experience there has turned me to never support or eat at any of Nick's eateries EVER again.
Save yourself from Big Nicks, trust me on this one! Unfortunately it took me 27 years to learn about this horrible business. . . if you are looking for late night eats, there is always Chirping Chicken, Europan and other clean, respectable establishment who treat customers appropriately.
Cures your hangover before you have it – I've never met a burger here that I didn't like, and it has all the ingredients a junk food junkie could ask for.
My only wish is that there was more space to move - the quarters are tight and it gets crowded. If you're picking up, there isn't much room to wait inside - you always feel like you're getting in someone's way.
That being said, I'd deal with the lack of space anytime for pretty much anything on the menu.
Very bad service and even worse Management – We ordered delivery one day to our hotel. It took twice as much time as they said it would, the man only brought 2 of the 3 items we asked for. We called to ask for any compensation and the manager was very rude and spoke with an unacceptable tone. He never returned a refund for our food. The food wasn't even that great. Don't go there, the food is disgusting and the service is unacceptable.
Biggest menu I've ever seen! – I've been here a few times and I must say: DELICIOUS. The food is always fresh tasting [no matter what time] and it always leaves you wanting more...maybe because there is sO much to choose from!! It's a quiet spot which is great for meeting with friends and grabbing a [good] bite. They have EVERYTHING on this menu. 24 hr breakfast...all types of pizza and sandwiches...salads...seriously, everything lol. Best part is that its all Mm-mM GOOD!
good burgers-pizza not too bad either – it is what it is... greasy greek diner taken to an american level. burgers are juicy, reasonable prices. pizza by the slice, big, foldable, hot. this is better than Nikos, which is the sister restaurant. love that it is open 23 hours a day. great place when everything else is closed.
the best cheeseburgers in nyc – Big Nick's has my all-time favorite cheeseburgers! I get the cheddarburger, which comes loaded with cheddar cheese, and waffle fries, which are perfectly seasoned and crunchy! The burgers are thick, juicy and seasoned to perfection!! I can't go more than a couple of weeks without this meal. Plus, Big Nick's menu is so thick that it has a table of contents!! It has everything one could possibly desire, and everything I have eaten there has been delicious!
