Finally stopped here for lunch after passing this place many times. Parking lot & adjoining street parking was packed,which is a good indicator. Went on a Wednesday, the specials in the buffet where fried chicken & country fried steak. Yum!! Lightly breaded & flavorful, and the buffet was replenished often. Typical southern sides, but everything was great. Will definitely come... More

Wednesday is country fried steak which is fantastic. The best fried chicken - every day. After a 4 month road trip around the US my wife had to go to Nick's for her vegetable fix.

I ate lunch here recently and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of food in simple surroundings. The lunch buffet featured several meats and vegetables, cornbread and rolls, salad, and desserts. I got a nice piece of fried chicken, fried okra, rice with stewed tomatoes, and green beans. The chicken was moist on the inside with a nice crunchy outside.... More

Or at lunch on week-days. If you like Southern Fried Chicken or Pork Chops, this is the place for you. Veggies galore Cabbage, Turnip Greens, Rutabagas, Creamed Corn, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, Gravy, & more. Absolutely Good & cooked to perfection. Sweet Tea, of course......................ENJOY !!

We've quit frying at home and every so often my husband just needs a fried pork chop. So Tuesday lunch is great at Nick's. The always wonderful fried chicken makes me happy and he gets fried pork chop with some fried chicken for dessert. The country veggies are always awesome. You won't find a salad bar here and this is... More

This is the best kept secret in Glynn County. The meats are out of this world especially the fried chicken just like your Mama and Grandmama cut up and cooked. No strange pieces of the chicken like you find so often these days. The vegetables could not be any better tasting. I had several pieces of fried chicken along with... More

Due to the short hours for dining, I have always missed lunch here before. Today I got lucky and made it in time to eat. The fried chicken was really great and reminded me of my Mom's. I also had the liver and onions with several vegetables. Really happy to see butter beans, collards, corn, fried okra, green beans, potatoes... More

Nothing fancy here but the food is wonderful. Home cooked and fresh. The best fried chicken, chicken and dumplings too. Customer service is the best, friendly family oriented. Do not miss out of this little gem.
