Don't expect five-star dining if you order here, but if you're hungry and in need of quick, greasy goodness- Nicky's cannot be beat. Order the Mongolian Beef or Chicken with Broccoli- excellent dishes. Their fried rice is also amazing, along with their filling egg rolls....More

When I worked in Hyde park I always stopped in Nickys. I love their fried rice dishes, especially the beef and broccoli fried rice, hunan beef, fried shrimp and any dish with gravy. The beef is always tender not rubbery like other restaurants.

It is a great neighborhood favorite. Food is always hot, fresh and fast. They deliver. Sometimes within 30 minutes of ordering. I live in the neighborhood and I eat Nicky's often. It is definitely worth trying.
