Big Nick’s has been a neighborhood mainstay for hungry Upper West Siders since 1962. Owner Jimmy Galanopoulos certainly knows how to keep his customers full and happy. Even though the restaurant has always been known for its large portions and reasonable prices, it’s the food itself that truly stands out. By using only freshest ingredients and no preservatives, Big Nick’s serves some of the best pizzas, burgers and Greek specialties in New York. With thirty-three toppings, and four styles of crust (including a healthy whole wheat with low-fat cheese and a thick Sicilian pie), there is certainly something for everyone; or try their famous avocado burger, made with one hundred percent pure steer beef either in the comfort of your home or in a cozy booth at the restaurant.
Big Nick’s has even been lauded by the likes of David Letterman, the New York Daily News and Good Housekeeping for their pizza-making expertise, but that should be no surprise at all to Big Nick’s loyal customers. With a motto like “Quantity and Quality and a reasonable price,” how can you go wrong?
