Eric was an attentive server and kept us with fresh chips and dips! (for a price!) Tacos were amazing for our table of 4. Beef were the favorite! Very good margaritas! Excellent food in a small venue!

Nico's restaurant in the Uptown area was trendy and eclectic. The artwork with the Dia de los Muertos theme was fun, and other patrons seemed to be enjoying themselves. The waitress was friendly and gave suggestions of favorites. The margaritas were well made and made...More

We used to LOVE this spot, but service and quality has definitely taken a downward turn in our visits over the past year or so. We enjoy sitting at the bar to eat and have drinks...we used to have the most engaging bartenders passionate about...More
