The food was great, very flavorful. The service was extremely slow, waitress messed up the order twice and was there longer than we anticipated and wanted. Hopefully it was a fluke but we will not be going anytime soon.

Terrible service, overpriced sandwich, terrible taste. I don't know why anybody goes there. Never again for us. Our friends from out of town also hated the food. It was embarrassing.

Had lunch with our daughter & her family. Food was excellent. I had the full rack of ribs. Very meaty and delicious. We also had fried green tomatoes for an appetizer & it was very good.

Nicksons Eatery, a Michelin Recommended Restaurant, located in the heart of downtown La Grange created by partners Nick Baca, his wife Carson Baca, and his brother Rich Baca. With a rich sense of American pride, the team is pleased to make their mark on the La Grange food culture, delivering compelling regional American fare with big bold flavors. Nicksons Eatery is strongly influenced by the rich character of downtown LaGrange. Literally translated, "La Grange" is French for "the barn" and every aspect of the concept--the food, the inviting atmosphere, and the charming space--are meant to reflect the warmth and abundance of rural culture: tin ceilings, rustic hardwood floors, raw wood accents, and family style seating give a timeless feeling and a familiarity that aptly sets the mood for the meal.
