Nelson’s is always a great experience. The home made food is good and prices are not out of this world. Always a friendly face to greet you and take your order. Very nice local bar atmosphere. It’s a favorite of ours.

Good place for a burger and fries. Quite a few other items on the menu, which are usually good. The place is reasonably large, and sometimes service isn't particularly fast. That is usually not a real problem. Friendly place, and it does have atmosphere.

Great burger and onion ring bar food with added bonus of home baked pie. Don't miss the coconut cream! Our family has gone to Nelson's for years, and we are now in the third generation who swear by Carrie's Swiss olive burgers. Just a local...More

Women, don't let your man go here unless you want him seduced by the waitress. She especially likes married men.

Saying that a place has the best burgers in the area will get you in trouble. So, I'll just say, you can get excellent burgers here. They are cooked on a grill that probably has a patina of burgers from a period of over decades....More
