You aren't going to get complex cuisine here but this place is great for what it is. It's good for breakfast or a lunch. The service always seems to be prompt and the food is good.

This place is OK but very much average. I ordered the Senior fish meal - it does come with everything - but the fish was obviously microwaved (tasteless and rubbery) and only 2 VERY small pieces. I had to ask for a dinner roll (also microwaved) and for dessert I got jello. Although I specifically asked for no whipped cream,... More

We eat here regularly. My mother and I consider this our place. The staff is great and service is excellent. On Thursday, they have German Tomato soup which is fabulous. They have daily specials. The chef is funny and receptive to compliments!!! My friends have become frequent visitors. It is good food at good price!

I ordered the fish and chips. The fish had no taste and was frozen fish. The fries we not the greatest either. The best thing I ate was the salad.

Just north of the Detroit Zoo, Nello's is a nice mom & pop restaurant. Good soups and salads, wonderful breakfasts, nice staff and a clean restaurant - who could ask for more. Their Maurice salad is very tasty as is their Greek salad. Portions are good sized and I usually have enough left over for a second meal. I eat... More

Nello's is a Royal Oak staple. The breakfast is good and hearty and the prices are fair. Nello's is always on my short list for a good place to meet along the Woodward corridor.

Went to Nello's for a quick dinner before attending a church function. It was quiet, clean and the service was way above average. I had the gyro and it was very, very good, my aunt had a senior dinner and it was just the right size and variety for her. Great place for a family dinner or just to get... More

I was staying with friends in the area who come here a LOT for breakfast and I can see why: I was NOT disappointed. Friendly wait staff, great prices and very tasty food (plentiful portions, too). I had the spinach omelet and the surprise to me was that it had feta cheese, which I adore. It was well cooked and... More

Lots of food choices. Service is great, food is nothing exceptional but good clean food. Good for a group get together and not too loud so you can have an enjoyable conversation with your dinner companions.
