“Average food, rude service”
Reviewed 22 March 2013 via mobile

We ate at Nina's on a Friday evening in early spring. We ordered a kids hot dog, cheeseburger, and a fish sandwich. The food was okay, nothing special. We also ordered a couple of custard cones. The custard tasted like frozen cool-whip, not one of the better custards we have had. The service was borderline rude. There were several high school/college aged guys behind the counter. They were not engaging or friendly, just going through the motions. We felt like serving us was an inconvenience to them. I doubt we will return to Nina's. The experience was no better than going to a fast food chain.

“wow, cow”
Reviewed 13 January 2013

To us, the big appeal of Nina's, a good-sized custard-and-snack stand on a well-travelled suburban highway, is the "Wow Cow," an ice-cream-like product from which most of the "bad stuff" has been filtered out with no reduction in taste... it's terrific, even if the flavors are limited to two per day (chocolate decadence, a favorite, however redundant that may be)... paninis, et al, are not really Nina's forte, and we're often surprised at the low traffic level, even in prime... do they HAVE to have a TV blaring in the main dining room? why not go to a music channel... it's not that it's Fox News, heck, we watch that ourselves, but we come to Nina's to get away from the world, not be reminded of it...

“Best Custard Around”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

After hitting all the custard stands in the area, Nina's has become our regular stop.
Just real good custard, sundaes and unique special flavors of the day.

Large clean place with eat in or take out capability. Custard is great, burgers are excellent and the food is fresh and well prepared. No negatives at Nina's
