Happy Mother’s Day!

40+ countries all over the world celebrate Mother’s day. We honor mothers and motherhood, and show them our love and appreciation! We give hugs and kisses, create cards, and give flowers and gifts!

What’s your Mom’s “The best Mother’s Day Ever”?

Here are some tips:

    • Leave Mom some love notes all over the house

    • Invite Mom to her favorite place – park, zoo, museum, shop, spa;
    • Does she like to take walks? Walk with her!
    • Take the whole family out to lunch or dinner at Nick’s Pizza & Pub!  What to try:
      •  A special surprise for every Mom that visits us on Mother’s Day
      • Kids can make an extra card, saying why the mom is the best – it’s never enough
      • Nick’s authentic Chicago thin-crust pizza. Moms love our special Margherita pizza!
      • Mimosas! We have a special offer – $2 all day;

Pizza de Fiesta

May’s Pizza of the Month

Can you believe it – this is the 27th Pizza of the Month!

Every single month we bring to your table a new story, a new flavor, a new Pizza of the Month. Some of them were invented by our guests, some by our team members. This month our Carry Out host in Crystal Lake shared her favorite pizza; we tried and loved it, too! Everything starts with our authentic Chicago thin crust, then we added taco sauce, freshly grilled chicken, house made bruschetta, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, green onions and some jalapeños (if you wish 🌶). If you have a good topping combination, please share!



Submit your potential pizza of the month at . If we pick you, you’ll be featured on our monthly flyer and will earn some free pizza to boot!

We hope to see you soon:
