A good diner, but there are so many good diners around that I can't really say it stands out. Good food and friendly service, though portions were smaller than expected.

We stopped here for lunch after visiting Muhlenberg College. The place looks old, but is clean and bright inside, and the people are friendly. We both ordered the Beef Barley soup; the broth was light and loaded with veggies, beef and barley. It was homemade and very tasty. I ordered the pulled pork with cheddar and Jack Daniels sauce sandwich.... More

Breakfast is so good and the price is unbelievable. Friendly people with a small town feel. It doesn't get any better than this.

Our first time at Nick's. When our entrees came out, I made the comment "they did not look like diner food." They looked very inviting and tasted great. Not a complaint from any of the four of us. The waitress was excellent. The chef asked if the meals were okay. The owner stopped by to check on us. I suggest... More

Some friends of ours invited us to this little diner in Allentown called Nicks. They told us the food, soups and desserts were homemade. They were right, it was excellent!!! Great place to eat.

I love to eat at diners. Nick's is a step back in time. Even the music playing is from the 70s. The place is clean and the staff is excellent. The menu had all my favorites. Food came quick, and hot. My coffee cup was never empty.

This is a nice diner with a great selection. We ate there with my parents on several different occasions. My parents used to eat there alot for breakfast and were always satisfied. My husband and I had the seafood combination twice and it was excellent both times. They have a good selection and wide variety of foods. The portions are... More
