I was first introduced to Uncle Nicks after first moving to Rockford and being taken there by a native for after bar time food. The line wrapped around the block. You got to try this at least once when ion Rockford. Best gyro ever.

Pint your ordinary gyros. They pack the meat on. One of my favorites whenever I'm in RF. The place could be cleaned a little more. That's why I strictly use the drive through. Will always be back for more.
