Nostalgic place, cold beer, bar food with a college atmosphere. Conquered the original Nifferasaurus got a bumper sticker and belly ache. When you are in auburn you will see the choices are not abundant but this is a safe choice. Lunch less busy than dinner.

Planned to go to Niffers by the Tracks but went to different restaurant that night. Went here a different night and had great appetizers and a a variety of menu items. I think this restaurant is popular with college crowd. Think it could be a busy place.

The past 5 or 6 times I've been here, it has been a tremendous disappointment. It USED to be great, but no longer. Burgers have gotten small and bland, especially the meat. All the kids items we've tried have been nearly inedible (and on two occasions were. I've decided that nostalgia is the only reason this place is still open.... More

This is one of the places that people visit before an Auburn football game. The service is good and the atmosphere is electric, but the food is just above average. Most people are in a hurry to get to the game and just want some comfort food. Niffer's is good for that.

My husband and i frequented Niffers when we lived in the area. We took our two pre teen boys here after the football game last night, promising them it would be good, even though we had not been to Niffers in twenty years. Nobody was disappointed! One son took one bite of his BBQ burger and declared it the best... More

This is a College Town and a College restaurant, but feel comfortable carrying Mom and Dad along for the ride, they like to eat too. May be a short wait at dinner time but it is worth it. The sandwich's they serve are large, most need a to go box ( well if you are over 40 anyway). Large assortment... More

Fun place to take the family. Lots of interesting "stuff" decorating all areas of the restaurant. We love to go and play "I Spy" with the kids.
