We went there on a recommendation form a local college student. At first glance, you can tell it is good place for Cleve students and the atmosphere was good. But the server was slow and he had no idea what beers they carried other than the four domestics. He sent us to the bar to look them over and they... More

I have been here multiple times. The menu is large that suits everyone's needs - fried, healthy, Mexican, American. Meat lover or Vegetarian, lots of options. You name it, they have it and it is all good! The service has also been great, every single time. Although this last time, they did forget to bring a drink, once the error... More

Food is great with lots of burger and sandwich options for even the pickiest eater. Price is extremely reasonable for the quality of food and service. Nice place to relax and watch a game and enjoy a cold beverage. Outdoor seating for when the weather is agreeable. Drink specials most days of the week, trivia Monday, kids deal Tuesday.

. Great burger joint with character (lots of links to AUBURN). Saw lots of students, all drinking sweet tea. Great value- paid about $17 for two, including drinks and tips. Super friendly waitress.

The food is excellent, the deep fried oreos are a must try. Great burgers and brew. If you come for a game you have to stop in

Lots of Auburn University charm in the restaurant. Food was good and there are a lot of choices. It wasn't outstanding but it is a solid choice of you are in town. A lot of variety for everyone. The staff was very friendly and offered to help us with directions and recommendations for our stay.

This is one of several Niffer's in the area; It is located in the "surburbs" of Auburn away from the college area. The building is somewhat beat up but when you see the crowd you understand why. The parking lot is somewhat strange lay out -- it has a single car line bumper to bumper lane directly in the middle... More

This is a great place to bring a group, especially college kids...wide variety of burgers and sandwiches with a number of flavors and fries, and all very affordable, fun place. There were five of us the other night...one black and blue cajun burger, one mushroom and swiss burger, one chicken fingers, one cajun chicken wrap, and my chipotle burger. Everyone... More
