The waitresses were all very nice, and the food was good as well. The atmosphere was great. Had a great time with friends and the waitress treated us like friends.

Went here to watch the end of the Cowboys game and the Cubs NLDS game with wife and daughter and a friend. Service seemed slow with refills of drinks but did offer more water. The chopped salad was pretty good. Had 2 calzones and a Buffalo ranch chicken sandwich. They all seemed satisfied, just nothing that wanted us to come... More

To start out I want to write that the fries with bacon and cheese were good, as well as the cheese sticks. The all meat calzone was so-so. First problem was the place is super noisy. We had to sit in the corner so we could hear each other. It was a Friday night though. Menus were "being updated", three... More

I have been to this place 3 times in past 2 years while visiting my son at Texas Tech. Great atmosphere with many TV's for sports watching. Great food and very friendly service! We will return again.

We ordered food to go and it was really good. After traveling for a whole day and driving in bad weather we were wanting to eat somewhat healthy and chill out. This place hit the spot.

I dropped in with my son, a student at Texas Tech University, for a cool drink. We ended up getting a snack, which wasn't memorable, but also wasn't bad. The service was typical for this sort of place - likely college students working part time - but I had no complaints. It was noisy, which I believe was by design.... More

This is a sports bar. Lots of TV and sports going all the time. It stays packed. There are 2 Nicks in town. The one by the University is full of college kids. This one stays full of adults. It's a fun atmosphere. We went up there the other night to watch March Madness and the service was good in... More

This non smoking sports bar is on a nicer scale than many. The food is tasty and drinks are delicious. My favorite is the pizza, but all the dishes I've tried are great. This is a great spot for friends to have dinner and drinks.

We went to Nick's on 82nd after a TTU football game. We luckily got a table. Yes it was busy, but it wasn't any different than any other place we've been to after a game. Our waitress was almost non-existent. We couldn't get drinks in a timely manner and it took over an hour for food.

Enjoyed my meal here. Sat at the bar, watched a game and had a nice meal. Nothing fancy, but a good burger and very good home cut onion rings. Wait staff was friendly, as were the other patrons around me at the bar.

Thank danjaxson
