Always great service and good food, priced right. I love the tacos! Yummy. The margaritas will knock you on your behind so watch out if you are driving. I do recommend if you want authentic Mexican food.

Recently had lunch at Nico's and the food was OK but it seriously needs a good remodel and cleaning. Heard the long-time owners were retiring so perhaps new managment will invest in the restaurant.
