If you order from here, you are in desperate need of anything edible. Just google the Cook County restaurants. It's self explanatory. They have been cited multiple times. I ordered a chicken dish. There was no chicken. Hello...duh. Chicken should be visible and evident. They provide plenty of MSG and salt and rice. Hmm, that (!), I could make on... More

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. If you're in the area, delivery is always fast.

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.

Neighbourhood Profile
Hyde Park
If you want to get a feel for quintessential South Side Chicago, you have to make a stop in Hyde Park, one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods. This historic area is home to two of the city’s most prominent cultural institutions, the Museum of Science and Industry and the University of Chicago. A stroll here will bring you past vintage and grand hotels converted into luxury apartment buildings; peaceful gardens, parks and green spaces; and ivy-adorned museums and other cultural institutions that speak to the city’s diversity and architectural beauty.
