Nick's was Great. Everyone just called him Nick the Greek because no one could pronounce his last name. If you were close by at lunchtime you couldnt resist the smell of onions and burgers grilling in the open air.

I used to always get the "Blackjack" cheeseburger which was jalapenos grilled pressed right into the meat.

I made a special trip there with a friend one super-hot afternoon in 85-56, actually went in and sat on those old stools and took a good look at the inside of the place.

It had the old old pressed pattern tin sheets on the ceiling and I had to fight the flys that day but that Bud was colder than a you know what in a brass bra.

Famous Hamburgers should have re-opened in another location too bad it didnt happen.

Oh and you gotta mention Angelo's BBQ & Joe T. Garcias in this thread. The old Mexican Inn too.
