About Us

Our History:

Nick’s Roast Beef opened its doors back in January of 1975. The restaurant was named “Nick’s” because both owners are named Nick. Nick and Nick are still the current owners, and are involved in the day to day operations of the business for over thirty years now. Nick’s Roast Beef is the true definition of a family business. Nick and Nick are brother in-laws, and their wives, cousins and nephews, and even siblings also work in the restaurant. Nick’s is happy to be recognized as part of the Beverly community, and want to thank their loyal customers for their support over the years. Nick’s has received various accolades over the years for outstanding food and service. Nick’s was recently recognized on “Phantom Gourmet” as the Hidden Jewel of the North Shore. Nick’s is known for their hot roast beef sandwiches, which are always prepared on the premises daily.

Nick’s Roast Beef one and only location is located in North Beverly on Route 1A. For further direction, visit the DIRECTIONS tab.


Restaurant Reviews:

Phantom Gourmet

Just about every Roast Beef place on the North Shore claims to be famous, but this one really is.

For more than thirty years, Nick’s Famous Roast Beef in Beverly has been serving the most melt-in-you-mouth beef you’re ever gonna eat.
Ereni Markos – Nick’s Famous Roast Beef: “It’s really thin, and it’s really moist, and it’s nice and pink, and you put a little sauce on it and it’s a nice, warm sandwich that really hits the spot when you are hungry.”




Roast beef is huge north of Boston. You can hardly drive a mile without passing a restaurant that advertises beef sandwiches. Some are chains, many are mediocre. Nick’s, where the motto is “We’re The Only One,” is in the top tier of excellence. Like all the local roast beef houses, it is a self-service joint where you place your order and wait for a number to be called, then carry your own tray to a table somewhere in the small strip-mall…”
