Don't let the white tablecloths and fancy décor fool you. You can easily walk into Nick & Stef's with $5 and come away full, or at least temporarily satisfied. The happy hour (3 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.) includes sliders, and each mini burger includes a perfectly cooked, juicy patty, topped with Bibb lettuce, a slice of tomato and sharp, nutty, melted cheese on a buttered brioche bun.
