What You'll Get
A diner's oversized booths and oversized pies have long been a beacon of hope for teens dumped after prom and frowny clowns looking for new novelty-sized props. Take refuge in the crispy crust of an old-fashioned eatery with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of beloved breakfast and lunch fare at Nick's Kitchen in Huntington.
Nick's Kitchen is Huntington's diner-eats outpost, offering breakfast and lunch menus full of time-tested meals. According to Lunch Encounter, Nick's Kitchen founder Nick Freienstein is the Thomas Edison of pork-tenderloin sandwiches, inventing them in the early twentieth century when most Americans were still eating chunks of gold. Freienstein's tenderloin sandwich ($5.25) lives on at Nick's Kitchen, along with the Quayle Burger ($8.50), a half pound of ground chuck topped with lettuce, onion, and tomato that was created specifically for the vice president and comes with enough fries to share with hungry secret service members. Breakfast, served from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m., can take the shape of the breakfast bowl with one egg, fried potatoes, veggies, and sausage gravy ($5.25), or the hearty Incredible Breakfast, which unites bone-in ham, cheesy potatoes, two eggs any style, and toast ($6.50).
Hand-dipped shakes ($3.25), available in strawberry, chocolate, or vanilla, and assorted homemade pies ($2.50 slice, $12 take-home pies) provide a subtly saccharine complement to the restaurant's friendly, homey ambience. Both locals and hungry passersby searching for authentic Midwestern comfort food can take comfort in Nick's Kitchen's cozy confines. Use today's Groupon for burger bonding or the legally binding chance to sip from a single milkshake with your date.
Nick's is open from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
