I haven't been yet, but a buddy who lives around the corner spat out this review when I suggested it as a possible place for us to get beers/food.

"Super bland pizza in an annoying family-style atmosphere with a pretty terrible beer selection. No."

FWIW, he drinks MACRObrews almost exclusively.

Looked at photos of the interior of Nick's Pizza (which just reminded me, nic pizza), and it looks, at least, well, functional.

We're coming up on ten years since Paddy O'Splaine's *kisses finger, taps chest, points to sky*
