While in Phoenix, I wanted to go to a new diner. I had been to the with Matt and Adam a few years ago, but we stayed on the opposite side of town towards Phoenix. Surprise is located near Luke Air Force Base and relatively close to the White Tank Mountains.
My brother, Husband, and I arrived on a Sunday, and they were packed. We waited about 20 minutes for a table. It was one of the busiest diners I have ever been too, but we got a table much quicker than anticipated.
Nicks 2 is located in an outdoor shopping mall near a movie theater. Despite being packed, we were never sat on top of anyone which was nice. The inside has plenty of booths, tables, and a full-length bar. It looks like a modern restaurant versus a diner. There is a giant chalkboard with specials, and it’s written on their menu too.
The coffee was brewed fresh and hot every time. I appreciated the table also had plenty of creamers including small packages of hazelnut and vanilla. Not many diners have flavored creamers, and I definitely value when they do.
Everything at Nicks 2 Diner looked good. Nicks 2 has plenty of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. Since we were there on Sunday, they have a cinnamon bun special. Little did I know, how massive that “special” was. When it came out, it was enough for the entire table. It’s not your average cinnamon bun.
If you ever go to Nicks 2, go on a Sunday and treat yourself to the cinnamon bun.
Not only was it massive, but it was one of the best cinnamon buns I’ve had.
Despite being busy, the waitress always made sure we had plenty of refills. After ordering, it didn’t take long for the food to come out either. I think we waited longer to be seated than for the food to come out.
For the cinnamon bun, coffee, and meal, the cost was $12.
I liked Nicks 2 a lot, and went back once while we were out in Phoenix. It’s a good diner, and I hope to go back again.
Questions for you:
Do you like cinnamon rolls?
What is the longest you’ve waited before being seated?
