Love this place, peanuts on the floor, reclaimed wood throughout. Gives back to the community and great pizza. Handles a crowd well too.

Started out right with an enthusiastic hostess and followed by prompt and polite server. I wont blame her for getting my order wrong (hold the tomato and lettuce) ...but that was fine because I was feeling a little warm anyway and the ice-cold tomato (ick) and ice-cold iceberg lettuce as an utter disappointment. The bun was boring and my burger... More

This a very casual and cool place where peanut shells fly while you wait for the pizza. It's a thin crust pizza place and is very good. It offers the usual Italian cuisine and the prices are reasonable. The wait staff is friendly and professional. Well worth the visit.

I'm from east coast and I have been testing all pizzas in Elgin area to find something similar to back east. I don't think I will find that type pizza in the west suburbs of Chicago. Nick's rated much higher than all the competitors in the area. The pizza is "tavern style"--crispy crust and very little sauce and a lot... More
