We love to go here when in town. There is nothing fancy about this place but the food is really good and the drinks are strong! If you are looking for fancy, keep driving. All the food is delicious and you can not beat the...More

Normally I’d rate them a 4-5, even though the food is good but not great. It’s the nostalgia you mainly go there for. But who appears to be the main waiter is a bit in the rude side, until toward the end of the meal...More

I've heard about Nick's for years and always intended to try it- If you're like me- Stop. Don't do it. It's a really small place and I'm okay with that because sometimes good things come in small packages. We walked past the group standing outside...More

Menu is very simple and inexpensive, but everything is relative. Long time favorite (40 years). My last trip was the same as all. The service has slipped but still a must when in Ttown.

Just like the University of Alabama is known for its football, Tuscaloosa is also known for Nicks in the Sticks. It has been around since the beginning of time and has certainly withstood it. The restaurant is a whole in the wall and a diamond...More
