Nick's Tavern

221 Main Street, Lemont, IL 60439

Bars & Taverns

In business at the same location since 1945, Nick's retains it's old fashioned charm while remaining an in-demand restaurant in the southwest Chicago suburbs.

With a comfortable, welcoming environment, Nick's sits on Main Street in historic downtown Lemont. The old fashioned charm includes lots of Cubs memorabilia, an antique cash register, and bottles of Schlitz. There's a modern ATM since Nick's never has and still doesn't take credit card. The menu is small, and they are sure to let everyone know that they don't serve fries but people come to Nick's for one thing - the famous Nickburger. As you can see from the four star reviews on Yelp, the burger is as big as the plate it comes on an is adored by people from all over Illinois and beyond. Recently Nick's and its kind hearted owner Don Quaid, were featured on Chicago's Best. Winner of a 2015 Illinois Delicious Destinations award.
