Success! Thanks for posting your review of Nick's Roast Beef. You’ve done the world some good today.


Unless you want to get really sick, don't eat here.\r \r I ordered a chicken cutlet sandwich, at about 12:30 PM on 01-29-2008.\r \r I returned to work and ate half the sandwich when I noticed that the chicken was completely raw.\r \r I returned to the establishment with the un cooked portion.

Nick's for Quizzo

Every Wednesday I'm a regular at Nick's Roast Beef. I used to go just for the great roast beef sandwiches and big beers but now I'm hooked on quizzo. If you don't know, quizzo is a trivia game where you can win great prizes like your bar tab.

A must try!

My first time to Philly, I was walking around and found this place. Bill Clinton was eating next door at Cuba Libre so there were Secret Service people everywhere. So I went into Nick's (which I heard of on Vindigo) and had a Roast Beef sandwich with peppers on the side. WOW! Absolute best RB sandwich ever! (getting hungry writing about it) Local snobs will say Californians don't know what a Cheesesteak is suppose... view more

The Best!!!

There is no where in Philly that you can get a better roastbeef sandwich than Nick's Roast Beef. Make sure you get the combo and try the birch beer.
