Place was good. I had fried chicken and it was amazing. Nice and crisp while staying juicy. Wine list was good. Didn't order wine, was just in the area for work. Service was pretty good, maybe a little slow but they were very busy so it's understandable. All in all, a good place. If I'm in the area again, if go again.

The last time I was here I ordered Monica's Chicken Pozole. It was so good. I've had their fried chicken which is certainly some of the best I've eaten, it that Pozole reminded me how delicious simple food can be. Their menu has something for everyone and treat yourself to some of their sweets.

Not your ordinary diner! From the homemade salsa and strawberry jam on the table, to the linguica sausage or bacon donut, this is an awesome breakfast place. We've been for lunch, but breakfast is my thing here. I'm a fan of the egg dishes and the maple donut with bacon lardons might sound unusual, but don't judge it until you've tried it!

Nickel Diner is just a really good diner. It's a bit more fancy than your average diner. But if your parents are the kind of people who feel out of place at a nice restaurant, this is a place where they will feel comfortable, and you will still like the food. It's best feature is probably its desserts. I had the Nutella donut, which was great. It's a cake donut with Nutella and some crunch, probably a mashed up cereal. I didn't ask. All of the desserts looked wonderful and justify a return trip. The service was prompt and courteous.

Great biscuits and gravy. Their huevos rancheros is good too. Homemade jam is a touch above the rest. Good value.

This place is alright. The service was good and overall seemed pretty clean. However, I expected more from the $10 breakfast burrito that I ordered, and the coffee had a bit of a charred flavor.
