Ate at the new Niko's and it was awful. Drink order was wrong. Rushed us to order. Had to ask for butter for bread, sour cream for potato, salt and pepper for table, and knife after they took bread plates before entrees arrived. Entrees obviously sat under heat lamp as plates were scorching hot, potato and beans dried out. The BBQ chix was flavorless. I've never had "bad chicken skin" before, but it was slimy and I almost choked on it. They are new and have a long way to go to get it right, but we will not be back to see if they get there.
