Classic Waterloo eatery and will always be one of my favorite places to eat in town. It's a favorite in our family, the George's Special is an absolutely fantastic pizza. The food is great every single time we order there, have literally never had a bad experience. We also have a family member that is allergic to wheat and Mama Nick's gluten free crust gets rave reviews from them (and allows us to all easily get dinner together).
I have always loved mama nicks food because it's always awesome. I have loved everything I have ordered so far. You cannot go wrong with Mama Nicks!
Hadn't been here in ages, and had a great experience! The pizza was fantastic with high quality toppings. The service was excellent!
We haven't had Mama Nicks since before my husband had to be gluten free.
I heard from someone else that their gluten free crust is great, so we decided to give it a try. He had George's special and said it was one of the best GF pizzas he's had.
Child and I had Regular crust and chicken, which were as delicious as always.
I travel to the Waterloo area numerous times a year for many years but this was the first time I stopped there for lunch. The pizza and the service was great!! I definitely will be back!!!
Always a great experience. George makes us feel like family each time he sees us. Food is easily the best in town.
Great pizza 🍕! The only thing is we ordered it for a specific time and it came about 45 minutes early
The spaghetti came out of the kitchen piping hot and steaming. I loved the sight! I'm not from Waterloo and have always wondered about this place. We hope to return.
Highly recommend! You can order a pizza from a huge nationwide company or you can support your small, locally owned family businesses. With more than 30 years making pizzas in the same location, Mama Nick's is a Waterloo landmark. My Dad has always bought the 16" Sausage pizza! Yum!
Love their food and everyone that works there is very friendly and great. Definitely recommend going here
We are from Texas but include Mama Nick's on every visit to Waterloo, and that is something like 30+ years. You can get delicious pizza from thin crust all the way to Chicago-style. Highly, highly recommended!
(Review based on an 8yr Olds opinion)The place was Amazing!! Food was Amazing. The chairs were comfortable!! The soda was really cold and fizzy!! 👍👍👍👍👍
We were in town for an event and looking for something local. We liked that it was an old school pizza place. Our pizza had great flavor and good ratio of sauce to cheese.
Home style pizza at a decent price. My family has been to Mama Nicks for decades. Always good food.
I have always loved mama nicks food because it's always awesome. I'm a little disappointed by my most recent order but it will not keep me from ordering again. I ordered 2 sides and a pizza. I have ordered many pizzas "chicago style" and they are stuffed with thick cheese and sauce. Mama nicks was nothing but sauce 😒 I wish all these companies would come up with a pizza and make it the same. The sides were very delicious but the pizza tasted like nothing but sauce. Please explain about how you ate making a specialty pizza before someone orders it expecting something completely different. For instance "our Chicago is all sauce with zero cheese"!!
One of the most amazing pizzerias I've ever been too if you haven't tried mama nicks your missing out my family and I have to stop everytime we come through I highly recommend you give it a try
Don’t know why we never ordered Mama Nick’s pizza growing up, but now I live out of state and being in town visiting we decided we wanted to try someplace new. The pizza was delicious (ketchup & mustard sauce on the “bacon cheeseburger” is unique and amazing!), the service was outstanding, and we will for sure be ordering from Mama Nick’s in the future!
If I could give this establishment more 🌟's, I would, for sure!! First time there. A "mom & pop" kinda place. Established 1962, in Waterloo, has some of the best Italian cuisine. Large helpings, (had to bring half of mine home) of wonderful home made food. Everyone is so friendly & accommodating. Will most definitely be making this a repeat event!! ❤👍
Good food and good service.
