For many years we have made Niki's a regular stop for lunch when we visit in Birmingham. You need to arrive early to avoid long lines and to know what you want. There's no holding up the line behind you while you decide what to...More

It seemed like my lunch cafeteria setting in the 70's but it is very popular and very reasonable. Take the whole family and check it out.

I had read about Niki's fantastic vegetable selections, but was pleasantly surprised when I arrived and found that the collards, spinach, black eyed peas, etc. are all not cooked with animal products! I can't say enough about how great the food was. If you don't...More

First we can't stop talking about the fantastic rolls. We have never taste rolls that good. The liver and onions, baked chicken and dressing, Veal with gravy, nana pudding, and cabbage is worth driving from Tuscaloosa to Bham for. We experienced wonderful servers and wonderful...More
