NICKS TO GO on MLK Jr. Drive Is My Greek Food Go To Spot

Real Estate Agent with The English Team

Nick's to go restaurant on MLK Jr Drive

English Team  Buyer Specialist Michelle Vastakis recently assisted Nick and Helen with the purchase of an investment property on Briarcliff Road.  Nick would show up at our North Druid Hills Road  office to sign papers and bring along the most delicious food for us to sample.  Nick insisted we drop by his restaurant, Nick's To Go, and try out all his specialties.  We finally made it Nick's on a hot August afternoon.

Nick has no seating but he allowed us to sit at a card table in the back of the kitchen (Note: you will not be allowed to do this, all food is to go, we were getting the red carpet treatment).  Nick and Helen asked us what we wanted to eat.  We chose a Greek Salad, Gyros (grilled chicken, souvlaki - Pork) and the daily spacial Pastitsio (kind of a Greek lasagna with bechamel sauce on top).  To quote the young folks in my household: "OMG"  The food was unbelievable.  Tim says it is the best food he has ever eaten .....ever...anywhere.  You can find lots of reviews on YELP but trust me, this is the real deal in Greek Food.  We spent three weeks in Greece two years ago and never had anything close to this good. 

Nicks To Go Restaurant on on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive on the opposite side of I-75/85 from the Capital.  The building has as much character as Nick and there will be a line at lunch!  Nick has apparently earned a bit of a reputation for being gruff with customers who are too demanding.  Just roll

with the punches and give him a compliment and he will roll over and play nice.  Helen is delightful and and is hard at work preparing the orders.  Daughter Angela handles all the gyros and is pretty amazing as she assembles the lamb, chicken, souvlaki (pork) and veggie gyros.

We thought we had discovered something new and exciting, but it turns out that half the professional chefs in Atlanta stop by Nick's To Go when they don't feel like making dinner.  That's a pretty good recommendation in my book.  After tasting the food, I know why they get Nicks to Go instead of making something on their own.

Call Nick and Helen 404-521-2220 or drop in at 240 Martin Luther King Drive SE Atlanta, Georgia 30312 for some amazing food.  Nick and Helen are in Greece until September.  They shut down the restaurant in Mid August so they can go home to Greece and relax.

If you are interested in purchasing investment property (and now is a great time), contact Sally English and the English Team and take a look at the excellent opportunities available now in the market.  We have everything from single family homes, duplexes, quads and apartment complexes for you to see.  We also work with commercial, O&I and light industrial properties.  We've added raw land and building lots available now from banks as "real estate owned" / REO.  Now is the time to buy!
