“Tons of great food at cheap prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2010

Uncle Nick's on 9th Avenue is a pre-theatre gem. We had huge, delicious Greek salads and a huge mixed appetizer plate loaded with Feta cheese, pita bread, tzatziki, taramosalata, grape leaves, olives, grilled octopus, kaftedes and more. (The whole purpose was not to fill up too much before hitting the theatre scene that night, but I don't know if we truly succeeded!) With drinks, the two of us got out of there for something like $30. Service was great, food was great, and we made our curtain. I don't think you can ask for much more.

“Great Greek Food, excellent choice before the theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2009

We ate here before going to a show. It was excellent. Very good food and service. Portions are large and prepared hot and fresh. Would definately recommend this. Great value. We had an assortment of dips served with hot pita bread, traditional lemon soup, lamp kebob dinner, and gyro plate. All were delicious. Don't forget desert if you want to top it all off wih a perfect treat!

“Tasty Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2009

Just recently ate at Uncle Nick's (May 14, 2009) -- A tour guide recommended we check the restaurants on 9th Ave -- cheaper than Time Square -- locals eat there -- lots of choice restaurants -- Uncle Nick's was on my list of places to try -- The food was very good -- but, my gosh, we had table for 2 and were seated so close to the people beside us it was like we were all at the same table -- This is not a place to have private conversation -- it is loud --

“Good Food, Fun Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2009

Went there again last night and had another good meal. Sampler plate was fun to share. Flaming cheese was okay. Grilled lamb kabob was great.

Fun for a group of friends. Loud, but not in a bad way.

“Great for Delivery!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2009

I need to preface my review by letting you know that we didn't actually venture in to Uncle Nick's, we ordered delivery.

We ordered avgolemono soup, a side order of roasted potatoes, horiatiki salad, Kotopoulo kebob platter, Gyros platter and Yiaourti. The order arrived quickly and the hot items were still nice and hot. The soup was good but not as lemony as I prefer. The roasted potatoes were one of the highlights of our meal - wonderfully flavorful and lemony. The salad and platters were great and offered huge portions. The Yiaourti was the other highlight of the meal...the yogurt impossibly thick and creamy, topped with walnuts and honey. Delectable!
