Sunshine greets Nick’s for return visit

From staff reports

Friday’s return visit of the mobile grill for Nick’s Hamburger Shop was met by hungry customers who were hot but dry.

The Aug. 16 appearance at Dawley Farm Village was a soggy affair, but Nick’s sold out of burgers in 90 minutes.

The final customers place their orders about 12:30 p.m. at the Nick’s Hamburger Shop trailer.

Today, the line at the east-side retail center was long shortly after opening, but after that the traffic was steady, and Nick’s didn’t have to turn anyone away.

The Brookings restaurant typically uses the mobile grill for events like SDSU football games and private gatherings.

The trips to Sioux Falls were organized by First Bank & Trust, which has been hosting Food Truck Fridays with Coffea Roasterie all summer in their shared parking lot.

Food Truck Fridays are scheduled through Oct. 20, and if the weather cooperates, they’ll keep going, said Sadie Bell, director of banking and retail services for First Bank & Trust.

“Nick’s will always be back,” she said. “We’re just not sure on when.”

Friends from Sioux Falls, formerly of Brookings, and Lake Preston had lunch together.

The crew took orders on the bags that would be used for the hamburgers.
