The wings here are the real deal. Not just hype, they are a level above all others I have had in the area. The draft beer selection is never amazing but always solid and rotating. They keep an interesting rotation of bombers as well. Once you settle in and learn to deal with some so-so service, youíll have a great time.

been here a few times, definate local feel about it, lots of beer kitch on the wall, bit dingy, worn out. Service has been mixed, particularly suffers when busy, bartender thought nothing of engaging in conversation while ignoring several groups at the bar when the place was full. Small selection of beer, but you should find something to drink, solid NC showing. Food has been good when Iíve ate there, things seemed fresh, maybe meat heavy overall. Prices are fair, not a bargain, but not outrageous. Bit out of the way, you have to want to go here.

Very enjoyable first visit to the Nickel along with some buds who are committed regulars. On a chilly Saturday night, the already cramped space was an issue for most of the first pint but we finally got a table and enjoyed the hell out of this place. Woody and warm, lively and convivial (crowd and staff alike), and a really fine assortment of food and drink. Had some lamb curry and enjoyed probably one too many 14oz pours of Founders Double Trouble (at a thrifty $5). Lots of good local and national micros on tap, and the same for bottles. Good spot.

Cool local hangout. I love the location in downtown Hillsborough. The food is good. Beer selection is decent for a place this size. Do wish it was a bit larger, can get super crowded at night. TV over the bar is nice for all the sports fans. Nice outdoor seating too.
