Sure....
The servers are snarky
The space is at a bare minimum
The bathroom is laughable (and in the dishwashing room, I've used it ONCE, I think it's smaller than an airplane bathroom)

BUT you know what....the food is greasy & amazing! I don't go often anymore (because I'm no longer in dance class dancing it off) but their food is like comfort food. As a vegetarian they have plenty of options! (Their tofu dogs with sauerkraut,creole mustard & waffle fries is out of this world!!) Their menu has a friggin table of contents it's so big! Their pizza is amazing, my sister ordered a slice with pepperoni & the pepperonis were about the size of my palm!

Just go to enjoy a decadent meal, and don't expect much out of service and use the bathroom somewhere else.

Ohhh, might I mention if you can save room for dessert try the mochi ice cream from Beard Pappas a few stores down! Great stuff! But only if you save room of course!

Lived on the UWS my entire life and have frequented Big Nicks, but my most recent experience there has turned me to never support or eat at any of Nick's eateries EVER again.

Save yourself from Big Nicks, trust me on this one! Unfortunately it took me 27 years to learn about this horrible business. . . if you are looking for late night eats, there is always Chirping Chicken, Europan and other clean, respectable establishment who treat customers appropriately.

I've never met a burger here that I didn't like, and it has all the ingredients a junk food junkie could ask for.

My only wish is that there was more space to move - the quarters are tight and it gets crowded. If you're picking up, there isn't much room to wait inside - you always feel like you're getting in someone's way.

That being said, I'd deal with the lack of space anytime for pretty much anything on the menu.

We ordered delivery one day to our hotel. It took twice as much time as they said it would, the man only brought 2 of the 3 items we asked for. We called to ask for any compensation and the manager was very rude and spoke with an unacceptable tone. He never returned a refund for our food. The food wasn't even that great. Don't go there, the food is disgusting and the service is unacceptable.

I've been here a few times and I must say: DELICIOUS. The food is always fresh tasting [no matter what time] and it always leaves you wanting more...maybe because there is sO much to choose from!! It's a quiet spot which is great for meeting with friends and grabbing a [good] bite. They have EVERYTHING on this menu. 24 hr breakfast...all types of pizza and sandwiches...salads...seriously, everything lol. Best part is that its all Mm-mM GOOD!

it is what it is... greasy greek diner taken to an american level. burgers are juicy, reasonable prices. pizza by the slice, big, foldable, hot. this is better than Nikos, which is the sister restaurant. love that it is open 23 hours a day. great place when everything else is closed.

Big Nick's has my all-time favorite cheeseburgers! I get the cheddarburger, which comes loaded with cheddar cheese, and waffle fries, which are perfectly seasoned and crunchy! The burgers are thick, juicy and seasoned to perfection!! I can't go more than a couple of weeks without this meal. Plus, Big Nick's menu is so thick that it has a table of contents!! It has everything one could possibly desire, and everything I have eaten there has been delicious!

We have been to Big Nicks many times, and I think the pizza is very good, and so are the burgers. Its pretty cheap there and you get a lot for the price, not only is it a large quantity its good food. The waiters are nice to you but wont be hovering all over you. Its a good place to go to on late nights there are open 24 hours with 24 hour delivery. Thats good service. I will keep on going there : )

My husband raves about the sumo burger from Big Nick's so I decided to give this place a try. After yesterday's experience, I've decided that I will never go back there again. The place was dirty and crowded. We sat outside in order to get fresh air and our server was very rude. She plopped the check on our table half-way through our meal and attempted to remove my plate while I was EATING my fries. I ordered the cheeseburger and found that it was average, at best. The bathroom is disgusting, tiny, and difficult to get to because it's located by where they wash the dishes. It was a gross place. Next time I want a burger, I would go to Jackson Hole where the food is much better and the place is cleaner.

This was a let down. The cheeseburger here was a real let down. The patty tasted like it was premade and prepackage. The kind you can buy by bulk at wallmart. The fries were few and soggy. For the price this place is not worth it. There are numerous places where you can spend less and have a better meal that won't leave you hungry.

If you can read the menu within the 5-10 minutes you're sitting there you may be one heck of a speed reader. The menu contents are extensive and full of some of the best variety a diner can offer. Except this place is mad small and way too crowded at times. The food is good and the portions are awesome.

Pros: Burgers, Menu Variety, Prices

Cons: Service (rushed), Small

.

The food is good, especially the pizza and there is a wide selection of everything. HOWEVER, anyone and everyone who is handling food should be wearing gloves - not, for example, scratching their scalp or wiping their mounth with their bare hand and then using that same hand to my handle food. That actually happened and it's gross and until they start wearing gloves or using tongs, I'm not going back.

The burgers here are awesome and they are all made to order. Try the Texas burger with an egg on the burger, it is like steak and eggs on a bun. The service is fast, burgers are juicy and fresh. They have a huge menu, so if you don't want a burger, they have a bunch of other specials on the menu.

My advice for Big Nick's is don't eat inside. It's cramped, greasy, and noisy, and you're right up against the stressed-out staff. The menu is ridiculous. I love variety, but it could be better organized. My friends were happy enough with their burgers, but I'm not sure Big Nick really knows what ""vegan"" means when he labels some menu items as such.

OK, you can find better food and service at any one of the thousands of restaurants in the city, BUT what will keep you coming back is the quirky nature and damn cheap meals. Breakfast is just fine at Nick's and all the unkown ""celebrities"" and meal additions that line the walls will keep you entertained between outbursts from the waitresses. Let's face it - people aren't coming back because its 5 star dining - it's the quirky style and a unique NY local style that makes it a favourite..... It's Nick's Dodgy Diner and I love it! :-)

i have been going here since i was a kid. it's so new york to me, what with the burger and pizza and greek food, it's like neighborhoods thrown together. big nick himself is a really good guy (he also owns nico's a block or two down) and the staff is really friendly and will remember you. it's not fancy (and frankly it's not the cleanest place in the world) but it's perfect. sweet decor - laminated quotes from restaurant reviews and photos of body builders and aspiring actors who frequent the place line the walls. the food is really good stuff, also they string twinkly lights everywhere. my favorite thing there is the spinach pie. the huge burgers are classic. the fries are thick and potato-ey. for dessert, the baklava is a sticky sweet piece of greek. when i was a kid they gave out lollipops and balloons that said, big nick is my friend.

Big Nicks serves drek (for you out of towners, that means crap). I went only once, and will never go back. The burger meat tased weird, they probably too much bread in it. Hey Nick, how 'biut using some real meat next time? Also, it took forever to get a cold bowl of soup, which was terrible by the way. There's too many good places in NYC to waste a meal at this drek palace.

I just returned from a trip to New York and our hotel was around the corner from big nicks. we ate there and loved it so much we kept going back everything is absolutely fantastic from burgers, hotdogs, to pizza and the gyros were awesome. Anything you eat is good and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. The greatest part is big nick is always there and will ask you how your doing and whether your meal was good. the staff cut up with each other and watching them is like watching a comedy sometimes. wonderful atmosphere, busy, and small but the food is spectacular. try the port wine burger or even a big nicks hot dog with chili awesome and the cheese pizza can't be beat. yummy!!!!!!!

This place was highly rated so we checked it out. The outside tables were packed and after being seated inside I know why. The front room was basically the kitchen of a big diner. The atmosphere was one of a busy kitchen. The menu was HUGE, almost too big. Luckily we were going in for the pizza and didn't have to go through the whole menu. The pizza was good. The small size was actually quite large and fed two of us with some left over. Prices were OK.

My husband and I live in Denver, but try to get to NYC a couple of times a year and on our last visit we discovered Big Nick's. It is a little dive, but the burgers were awesome!!! I had the Pizza Burger and my husband had the Grecian Burger. Both were excellent. The only downside is the menu is huge, and the waitress was kind of hurrying us along to get our order, I didn't even get to read half of what was offered, so I felt pressured to MOVE IT ALONG, but otherwise a great experience.

I thought I'd died and gone to heaven when they served me my first sumo burger! My son is in NY attending college so he wanted to take me to his favorite dining place-Nick's. For those visiting NYC for the first time, this is a must do place. Dining out front was very nice. I have shared my menu with all my co-workers in Ohio and they are amazed at the selection and prices. Too good to pass over, we'll definitely be back. I can't describe how good the 1lb burger was. I was so impressed how well the cook prepared our meals-perfect!

Can you at least have someone who speaks and understands English taking delivery and take out orders?! It's a constant struggle repeating myself 10 times and yelling at the top of my lungs.

Big Nick's was sooooooo delicious. I had a guacamole burger, and it was perfect. My boyfriend had a burger smothered in a wine cheese sauce; once again, PERFECT.

The best greasy spoon in town. Big Nick's has a good variety of cheap (for the upper west side) diner-like food. The atmosphere of the little booths with all the signed pictures on the wall is classic as well as the limited outdoor seating. The best part: open 24 hours so it's a great place to stop on your way home from the bar strip just a few blocks away.

BIG NICK can place any ANY toppings your heart desires on your burger, it also has the infamous SUMO burger, which is one pound of beef. I had a SUMO Burger once with carmarlized onions and mushrooms, muster cheese and all the trimmings, it was great, it also comes with a huge order of fries and a large drink. I could not finish it all, but my brother polished 2 OF THEM!!!!!

Big Nick's is simply heaven. They have an amazing menu which never ends, charismatic and sweet waitstaff, and lots of charisma about it in general. It's the kind of place you'll never forget. Their burgers are *EXCELLENT*, perhaps even *DIVINE*. But not to be overlooked is their 100% vegetable soup, their garlic soup, their fantastic ceasar salad.. for all of it's ""dive"" atmosphere, Big NIck's is really quite clean and friendly. You'll love it - I can almost guarrantee. -Ljova

Big Nick's is simply heaven. They have an amazing menu which never ends, charismatic and sweet waitstaff, and lots of charisma about it in general. It's the kind of place you'll never forget. Their burgers are *EXCELLENT*, perhaps even *DIVINE*. But not to be overlooked is their 100% vegetable soup, their garlic soup, their fantastic ceasar salad.. for all of it's ""dive"" atmosphere, Big NIck's is really quite clean and friendly. You'll love it - I can almost guarrantee. -Ljova

Pros: inexpensive, cool vibe, great food

Cons: not too hip, too cheap, too much variety

.

Without a doubt one of the best burger's Ive ever had. This is my kind of place. You wont be sorry you went.

This place is straight ahead. What you see is what you get and what you get is a pizza that is better than most and some of the best burgers around. Don't go there to impress your date with ambience. But if your best girl thinks thrift is sexy, Score! Also try Pizza Joint Too (another restaurant by Big Nick) on Columbus and 71st.

Get past the appearance of the place, dig into their HUGE menu, and enjoy! All the dishes are good, maybe not mind-blowing, but always good. Comfort food is the specialty, burgers and pizza are very very good. Try blueberry pancakes on a weekend. Where else can you get Jimmy Dean southern sausage and grits in NYC?
