Nichols West is a surprise. When you first arrive it just looks like a local mom and pop place. However, the food is excellent and well worth the trip. Congress is a small off the beaten track town and yet is boasts a fantastic restaurant.

What a surprise to have a restaurant with such good and different options in the almost middle of nowhere. I had the calamari salad and it was excellent. I would highly recommend this place if someone is in this neck of the desert.
