Burgers and hot dogs are great! We love the onion rings, too! My only complaint is that they aren't open on Sunday's, the day the Lord said to rest!

This is a little family run business, the serve a variety of food. Everything from hot dog and hamburgs to fried clams, shrimp, soft shell crab and more. One thing bring cash, they don't take credit or debit.

Checked online and the fish platter was $14.50. Got there and was billed $16.00. Not right! Just always seems to be a negative attitude on the part of staff.

Nick's Char Pit is a fantastic find. The Char-broiled hotdog's and hamburgers are the best in the area, and they only use Hummel's hotdogs. It is mostly a family run restaurant and there are a lot of locals there. It sits right on the New...More

Been going to Nick's ever since it opened up in front of D&D Construction many, many years ago. Food always has the same, great quality and it's not Dino's overly-greasy consistency. One step above Glenwoood in my book too and almost as good as Turks....More
