If you live in or even near Everett and you haven't been to Nick's Jr., I'm going to guess that you've also probably never watched Princess Bride, colored with crayons, or played with puppies. In short, I'm going to guess that you have made some sort of vow of self-denial, and avoid all things pleasurable and good in this world. For those of you who have experienced the sheer joy of the GCBC (Grilled Cheese Bacon Cheeseburger), I write this merely to share my mutual appreciation, as I know that convincing you to return is not required.
Nick's Jr. is readily visible on Evergreen Way, painted a deep red with a black and white devil on the side. I imagine this is an homage to the owner's last name, Demonakos, but I like to think it's because the food is sinfully good and a haven for the gluttonous masses. Every time I've been there, Nick (the owner) is always there behind the counter, greeting customers with a big smile and kind words. Today we went with my mother and brother, who are in from out-of-town. I convinced my 6'4 little brother to get the GCBC, and when Nick heard, he was so excited he told us of a guy that ordered it with 5 patties! I've eaten that burger on numerous occasions, and although I always finish it, I can't imagine ordering it with 5 patties. As it was, my brother was pretty full by the end.
My son absolutely loves the Mac 'N Cheese bites, but personally I love the unique specials that Nick comes up with, like the Oktoberfest Burger pictured above. It's a regular burger with sauerkraut and grilled sausage, because why not!?!
Today's special was a Buffalo Chicken Wrap. Which, although simple, was a true treat, because it was folded into their awesome soft pita bread. Yum!
If you want a classic you can always order the Gyro, and if you're wanting a little more excitment, you can order it with the spicy tzatziki sauce like my husband did.
If you can't decide between a gyro or burger, you can get the Gyro Burger. It's delicious, and despite it's appearance, shouldn't give you the meat sweats. Yes, there is a hamburger patty under the gyro meat, and yes, you should order the Greek Fries in the background, because feta makes everything betta.
For the sad souls that are still resisting the temptation that is Nick's Jr., I will leave you with the GCBC. I realize the lighting is off, but the burger was my brother's, and I thought it would be a bit rude to grab his meal and run to the window. I have my dignity. At any rate, it's still mighty tasty looking. You know you want it!
I'm a not-for-profit worker that loves food, both healthy and indulgent. I've eaten the 12 egg omelette at Beth's Cafe: toast, hash browns, and all. Take that Adam Richman!
