Nowhere else but Nick’s!

Nowhere else can you find that one-of-a-kind flavor you only get at Nick’s - we’re Indy’s original chili parlor. In 1974, founders Nick Ferris and his father Jim, began serving our “Not Yet World Famous” 5-Way Chili, giant breaded tenderloins and foot-long chili cheese dogs.

Since then, we’ve added a lot more, like our jumbo all beef gourmet dogs, grilled chicken sandwich and soft serve ice cream.

It’s all great food and a great value!
