Pricy for what you get... Culvers, in my opinion, now has the best burgers in town. I understand the nostalgia involved but never really understood what the big deal is about the taste of the burgers. They're good, but not great. For 99 cents I'd probably go there much more often, but at a buck in a half, I'd rather go to culvers, or burger king for the dollar menu whopper jrs which are twice the size for less money.
Honestly I really don't know what these other people are talking about. The burgers are fried in oil, flattened until all the juice runs out of them and they shrivel up into flavorless, oil covered-but dry, chunks of beef. If that's what you think makes a good burger, I feel sorry for you and your stomach. Only in Brookings SD could this place have survived for so long. Brookings...where good food is extremely difficult to find.
I will also state that the service is lousy, and they were really rude and impolite to us when we ate there.
Mu Uncle who is in he late 70's used to tell me stories about stopping in at Nick's for burgers when he was young, now I know why. This is a place where it is hard not to over-eat. Freshly remodeled but with the same delicious hamburgers, chips and sodas. There is no wonder why this place has stayed open for decades.
Great little burgers served on fresh baked buns without a lot of fancy dressing up. These little meat patties will melt in your mouth after being cooked in Nick's secret seasoned fry oil made up each week and topped with there signature mustard relish. Better start with at least three singles because these tasty stacks go down easy.
