Custom Burgers | Texas

Our Story
Nicky D's in Crowley was founded by Nick and Tammy Danelski in September 2002 in what used to be a service station and convenience store. 

Service is what this location continues to offer to patrons but now it comes in the form of some of the best hamburgers this side of the Pecos!

When you step through the front door you will feel as if you've stepped back in time to the favorite soda shops of old when you're greeted with a warm smile and the smell of "fresh cooked" burgers.

You almost feel like you've intruded on a family gathering but in no time at 
all you'll find yourself 'adopted' as one of the locals when you hear your name being called out by a friendly server with food in hand.

Nicky D started working in commercial kitchens at age 13 when he as a dishwasher. It wasn't long till he knew he had found his calling. He decided to pursue becoming a chef and restaurant owner and years later would open the first Nicky D's


Tammy came into his life as an employee. She caught his eye and but he knew it wasn't right to date an employee, so he did the only honorable thing a business owner could......he fired her!

While this decision may have been bad for business, it certainly did wonders for their relationship as the two lovebirds have been married for almost 35 years.

Tammy loved being with Nick, but not so much the Chicago winters so they decided it was time to high-tail it back to Tammy's home state of Texas where they opened the now famous Nicky D's of Crowley.

All you have to do is take one look around the restaurant and you'll see Nick and Tammy's love for each other, their community and their patrons. From pictures of Muscle Car contests to copies of LP's hanging on the wall, the story is the same... Welcome home.

We hope you enjoy your visit to the website but if you would like to help Nick and Tammy create lasting memories, come by the diner and sample the food. One bite and you'll be hooked! GUARANTEED!
