    Big tacos! I should have gotten two of the veggie ones; very tasty! Funky interior that probably looks better at night.

    Cash only, but they have an ATM machine. Order food at the interior counter; order drinks at the bar.

    Nick's tacos are famous in NorCal. The only way to order them is "Nick's Way". And, be sure to get at least one Pescado.

    This place is just like a Chevy's or any other chain restaurant that claims to be "authentic Mexican", but is actually quite the opposite. The tacos are OK, some not even that. Food lacks seasoning.

    The seating area beyond the partition is Rouge, which is it's own thing. Either stay on Nick's side or take your food to go. Rouge sucks.

    Seriously?! Baja fish tacos, Nick's way w/a Mexican Coke. Did you even have to ask? EVERYTHING is better fried and smothered in guac. Amen.

    Chips and salsa is chips and pico :( the quesadilla was soggy and the ranch for the jalapeño poppers tastes tangy.

    Nicks crispy T's has the look of a titty bar, the smell of a Chinese restaurant, and the ordering process of a dirty Mexican restaurant.
