Not eat-in, only take-out. Very good Gyro's and Baklava. I can't comment on other things because I can't NOT get the gyros.

Uncle Nick's was one of my late brothers favorite places, so I tried it for the first time a few days ago. Ordered the namesake Gyro. Food arrived quickly, there's no seating inside, take out only & cash only. So I took my sandwich back...More

Uncle Nicks has the best gyros I think I ever had, They are always larger than a normal size gyros and always served hot and fresh. They have 2 locations in Rockford and both are equally as good. Both of these locations are take out...More
