It always packed on the weekends, but it is worth the wait. The menu has so much variety; there is something for everyone!! Corn nuggets are a must. Trivia on Monday nights are a blast!

We often eat at Niffer's on Thursday nights to participate in "Hamburger Nite!" A wide selection of Burgers sell for $5.99, including one side item. You can choose a vegetarian burger or a turkey burger as an alternative to beef. The service is always courteous & attentive. Niffer's is an upbeat, feel-good family place.

Went here for my moms birthday. Food was alright but it took forever!! There was a man making balloon animals while you wait though. So at least the kids were occupied.

Had a group of people stop in based on some local recommendations and being from New Orleans I guess I can be spoiled but I was excited about going to Niffer's, however I can't say I am excited to go back. Started with Fried Pickle Spears and Chips and a White Queso style cheese dip. They were out of tortilla... More

Stopped by on recommendation of friend that had attended Auburn years ago. Big selection and inexpensive. Burger was ok. Better than the fast food chains, but not much more. Seating on outdoor deck is a plus in good weather.

It was just OK. Food is run of the mill. Fried rules and is a little greasy. Rueben sandwich is good but no wow factor. Fairly clean and the servers are hit and miss. Very popular place and maybe I have missed something in 4 visits. OK for a quick lunch.

Stopped here for lunch on our way to Fort Walton Beach from Atlanta. Huge menu selection and friendly, efficient (if somewhat overbearing) service. I had a very fresh entree salad, and my husband said he had the best fried chicken sandwich he's ever had...and that's saying something! Very busy for lunch...I gather it rocks at night. Would definitely stop here... More
