“Made me feel welcome-NOT”
Reviewed 29 April 2013 via mobile

When we walked in door no one was there to seat us. Waited a few minutes. Lady came up without speaking, gathered menus and walked away from us. We were confused and assumed she meant for us to follow. Right. Then a man came to table who could not speak English very well. Said "drinks". Assuming we were to order we did. Right. Then he came back and stood at table. Said "ready". Assuming we were to order we did. Right. Never a smile. Another person brought chips, drinks and meals. He came back and put bill on table and walked away. Assuming he wanted our credit card we put it on the tray. Right. Someone else brought card back. Assuming he wanted tip, nope Wrong.

“This IS a great place!”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

The staff at the NIcky's location on Pine's Rd is terrific! The group I travel with each year lucked onto this restaurant a few years ago and we will always come back. Good food, great deals on Monday and Tuesday nights, and great margaritas during "happy hour". Going through Shreveport?....You have to try this place out!

“Great service and good food”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

Ate here while my family was attending a soccer tournament. We had never heard of the place but stopped buy for lunch on a Sunday. From the looks of the packed parking lot we figured it was worth a try. It appeared to be popular among the locals. Hostess quickly found a table that had recently become available, even though they were really busy staff did their best to seat everyone coming in as soon as possible. Server was very attentive and provided very friendly and prompt service. Food was good. I have had better but between the great / speedy service and adequate food we enjoyed our visit. One thing that I thought was odd was that when you order fajitas you have to pay extra for the add-ons (sour cream, guacamole, pico, cheese, etc.) when most places give that for free. I also found the prices were about $1 or two more than other places with similar menu items. One interesting thing in a good way is that they serve their salsa cold and warm. My first time getting warm salsa in a restaurant.

“Better than average Tex-Mex”
Reviewed 25 December 2012

Food was about what you normally get at a Mexican restaurant. Chips and salsa pretty good and the top shelf margaritas were excellent. Service very good!
