Niki’s is what it is. An icon and good food. My best advice to offer is to read the posted menu and observe the line before you get up to it. They rush you and make you feel like its an urgent issue to choose...More

The only meat and three you ever need to visit in the Ham. Birmingham has a rich Greek history and Nikki’s is one of those restaurants that has been here forever. Nikki’s has been on Andrew Zimmerman’s show. You’ll never leave here hungry.

The food was excellent and the menu is vast!!! Wonderful service and really good atmosphere. The cabbage, yams, both the fried and baked tilapia were yummy! My husband had the spinach and is still talking about how good it was 4 hrs later.

This is a cafeteria with many choices. All the food is fresh and very tasty. Not the usual buffet style where everything tastes the same. Second time I have eaten here and very good each time and enough selections to satisfy everyone.

Alabama is famous for the meat and three. Niki’s has both a cafeteria type line as well as sit down service. The restaurant was quite busy at 7pm. The Veal was goods as was the fried okra, spinach and the Cole slaw.

I was part of a tour group with a local tour guide who took us to Niki's. A very pleasant surprise. Cafeteria style with choice of several entrees and many sides to choose from. Delicious rolls and tantalizing pies, not to forget the sweet southern...More
