Big Nick's Burger & Pizza Jnt
Great pizzas and big burgers are the stars at this terrific but crowded neighborhood spot, Big Nick's Burger Joint & Pizza Joint. The decor is fresh from the 1950s, with linoleum floors and lots of vinyl. Try a Madrid Burger (feta cheese, black olives and pimento) or a Pizza Burger. The pizzas are delicious as well, with Canadian bacon, pineapple, chicken and salad being amongst the favorite toppings. Portions are enormous, but save room for at least a spoonful of the bulging banana split dessert. Service is efficient and speedy.
One of my best friends used to live above this place. I used to visit for weeks at a time and every time I went to Big Nick's daily. That place is awesome. Everything is always the best and I would tell anyone in the NYC area to hit it up!
I always stop in at Big Nick's when I am in town. My daughter used to live across the street and it was an at least twice a week that we would stop in and have a burger. Always fresh and reasonably priced.
this is one of my favorite places love them i been going to big nicks for about three years now i remember when i live an aanother state i use to be so mad cause this is the only place you can get a good bruger at 2am
The best burgers in the city... period. And I'd argue probably the best burgers ANYWHERE.
100% Black Angus steakburgers served to whatever temperature you prefer. In (only, hah) about 3 or 4 dozen different topping combinations. Name a way to eat a burger and chances are it's on the menu. If not... they'll make it for you anyway.
Speaking of the menu...
It's a misnomer to call it a menu. It's actually a Food Novella (Seriously).
How they make the breadth of things they do in that small kitchen is truly amazing. Equally so by the care and quality they put into all of their products.
Gyros, chicken, pizza, pasta, steak, ostrich (yup).... oh, and BREAKFAST: Served all day long and delicious.
That's not even a fraction of the menu... seriously.
I couldnt possibly remember everything that's on there.
If you live in NYC or are just visting, this place is truly the iconic dive. From the plastic, plushy booths... to the old pictures on the wall... to the 3 stooges running in a loop on a small b&w TV. It's quite the quintessential experience.
One of the best the city offers!
(And dont eat the Sumo burger.. your gut will explode... seriously)
