This is one of my "go-to" places in Auburn. They have a wide variety on the menu, and its all good. The atmosphere is fun, the employees are very nice and courteous, and the beer is very cold. This is a family friendly place though. Be prepared for a wait if you go at noon on a weekday or on... More

This was our 2nd time at a Niffer's, first one in Opelika. As soon as we walked in the door, we were greeted by the host and then before we got to our table we were welcomed by 3 more people. Everyone was very nice. We had deep fried pickle spears. I usually prefer the chips but these were extremely... More

We were seated right away even though the restaurant was already crowded. Our server was nice and friendly and gave us ample of time to order. I had the pepper jack burger and my date had the Hawaiian burger. Both were delicious. I will definitely be going back to try the fishbowl drink.

Unique restaurant that has so many hamburger combinations you don't know which to try. The service was great and so was the food. Sports bar type restaurant but family friendly. We enjoyed our visit and will go again.

Overrated... Greasy burgers, loud place. The food was mediocre. Our waiter was very nice, but the overall experience was not worth it.

Unpretentious restaurant with a casual mix of collegians and families. Friendly staff and good, basic American fare. Salads were crisp and cold. Grilled chicken sandwich was well-seasoned and cooked, but the accompanying pasta salad cup was bland and not worth the calories. The frozen margarita was tangy and tasty and well worth its $3.00, yes, I said $3.00 price tag.... More

Whatever you do, remember to order a basket of corn nuggets! It's the signature appetizer for this fabulous little restaurant. The staff is super friendly and the food is always delicious. If you're meeting just one person or dining with lots of friends, they can accommodate your party. Did I mention the delicious corn nuggets???
