“Good Burgers & Boardwalk Type Fries”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

If you're looking for a huge burger then the Pickle Nickle is the place to go. Their 1/2 pounder is very filling and the fresh cut fries are very good. Good pricing only helps this establishment.

“Unique little place”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

If you want a decent burger, awesome milkshake, fresh cut fries on a shoestring budget, then this is the place. The decor is fun and the game room kept the kids entertained. Quite a unique little place...quirkey and fun!

“Eat here and be happy”
Reviewed 19 July 2013 via mobile

The pickle Nickel

If you are in Dillsburg, Pennsylvania you must stop here. It's economical and entertaining. Every table has a game on it dominoes, jenga, uno, etc. Something that you can play while you wait.

There is a large room next-door, the same size as the restaurant, for video games with tickets and prizes.

The hamburgers were yummy and very creative. All ran about $4-$5. There was a great special on french fries five cents for another large serving. The serving was easily good enough for 2 people. Our family of4 had a large lunch with drinks/milkshake, burgers and fries for under $30.

My son had a milkshake and raved about it. They will make any kind.

“Fun for the kids”
Reviewed 22 June 2013 via mobile

The prices were great. Our family of 4 ate for $16! The burgers were just ok. Fries were very good. Kids loved the small arcade. Got 20 coins per dollar.

“Great Family Dinner”
Reviewed 16 May 2013

We went in on a Tueday night back in April. Both my husband and I didn't care for the burgers - both of ours just dripped huge grease puddles on our baskets. Flavor was good, grease was a turn off. However, everything else was fantastic! Kids had chicken tenders (huge portion) and grilled cheese. We split fries (huge, steak cut fries) and onion rings. Both big portions.

Best part of the restaurant was the arcade (really cheap!!!) and the board game tables to play while you wait.

I will definitely go again, however, I personally will opt for the chicken next time.
