“Good Sandwich”

Old Original Nick's Roast Beef
Reviewed 21 February 2016

Went to Nicks for a late lunch. Ordered the roast beef, very tasty fresh roll and spicy horseradish. My wife had the roast pork, not as happy...lots of sage...gravy fries are good, wish they had better sides...everything is fried.

I had the roast beef sandwich with broccoli rabe. It came on a large kaiser-type roll on a styrofoam plate barely bigger than the sandwich. So presentation was a little lacking, but the flavor more than made up for it. It was juicy, tender, and absolutely delicious. Good fries, too. The atmosphere was casual and fun, and service was very good.

My family grew up in the "original" neighborhood in South Philly near Nick's first location at 20th & Jackson Street. As much as it pains me to say (a loyalty thing), the Springfield location of Old Original Nick's Roast Beef is just at spectacular and untouchably delicious as Nick's South Philly! We had one sandwich with "the Ends" (all the outside meat) and one "overboard combo" (Lots of gravy with Provolone). If you want to get more gravy, order the Gravy Fries. They have Ham, Turkey and Pork sandwiches too, but I'll never try them......the Roast Beef is just too good! I'm a big fan of their Italian Hots too! Parking stinks here, so be careful not to park in the adjacent businesses spaces; you'll get towed. Park in the neighborhood. It's worth the inconvenience.

This is one of them. Two locations, one here in Springfield, the original in South Philly on 20th Street

Beef and Cheese is the way to go

Do not worry about the Ambiance, Service or limited menu

You go for one of the three best sandwiches in Philly

Don't dress up. Come hungry. Order the Beef and Cheese combo

I like mine overboard with Outs.

There is no comparison with other Beef Ale Houses in the Burbs.

Anytime you're in the mood for a good meal, go to Nick's! They have one of the best roast beef sandwiches. The waiters/waitresses are excellent at keeping your cup refilled. Go to Nick's!
