So I realize that this person only posted once and disappeared but I am just bringing this thread back up to say that I visited my parents last week for New Year's and on our way into town I called my dad and told him and my mom to meet us at Nick's. My wife and I both got the Stromboli (hers without onion, mine with) and they were just as good as ever. It's defnitely a must have if you visit Bloomington.
I agree. There is nothing I have been able to find anywhere that is like a Hot Strom from Nick's in Bloomington. Outrageously great. First introduced to them when I was a student at IU many moons ago, and have never found anything similar in the US ever since.
Longing for a Hot Strom every since , and not being able to find one anywhere other than in Bloomington, I have resorted to recreating my own at home.
Here is a Utube video that gives a good idea as to how to make one. I have been able to come close, but still have yet to get the pizza sauce right yet. YouTube - Stromboli Sandwich
