Nick The Greek is the best way to travel to Greece and have Greece food.
With a huge door opening to the sidewalk, this bright little souvlaki and gyro house ” Nick the Greek” is part of a rapidly expanding chain launched in San Jose. Nick the Greeks have ten branches from Santa Cruz to San Carlos, most owned by the founding trio of cousins. It has become a trendy, multi-unit chain and a restaurant franchise opportunity primed for even more growth.
Three brothers, “Big Nick,” “Little Nick,” and “Baby Nick,” are riding the fast-casual wave, offering a small but well-curated menu of moderately priced Greek standards in a friendly environment. A Mediterranean blue palette, creative logo, and an order-at-the-counter setup give the spot a decidedly corporate, cookie-cutter feel. It provides Greek street food tweaked a little for California palates served with American-style efficiency that can be easily replicated in each location. The place features sleek, beautiful interiors that draw in customers. Nick the Greek has a mix of high tables throughout the restaurant. The site is perfect for future lunch dates and game nights, with TVs mounted on the walls and an open kitchen that makes for a homey atmosphere. The one thing that stands out about Nick The Greek is their authenticity: the flavorful meat, soft pita, refreshing tzatziki, and the perfectly made French fries that tie the whole gyro together. The trip does not stop there. There are fresh falafels, Greek fries loaded with toppings, and Greek yogurt, making the customers speechless. As travel is limited during COVID times, Nick The Greek gives one sense of a trip to Greece.
Nick the Greek offers what one will expect from a fast-casual restaurant. The prices are fair, and the friendly service and the food are a minor hit and miss, but there’s a local demand for budget-friendly Greek fare. Nick the Greek is assisting in filling the niche with its bright little eatery on a fun Redwood City street. To learn more about them, get connected to them on Instagram at @nickthegreek.
