I have been going to Nikola's restaurant for years. They have the best ribs in all of Michigan. I will not eat ribs anywhere else. Ribs, french fries, coleslaw and garlic bread make the perfect dinner at Nikola's. Great food!!!!

Food here is great except on Mother Day. Or big Holidays, they skip on food and raise the price. But how can you blame them they get so many.
