On a short visit to Chattanooga, we drove by this diner and decided to stop for lunch. After being seated, we immediately knew we didn't want to stay, but we were hungry and decided to stick it out. The Diner could have the charm of...More

Have been going here since I was a little girl. The food is awesome. They are known for their delicious onion rings. Great place to take ur family too. May have to wait for a booth or table, but its worth the wait.

If you need to get an excellent southern delightful meal, this is the place to visit. The onion rings are Vidalia, hand coated rings that melt in your mouth. The hamburgers, hamburger steak, bacon-wrapped chicken livers and huge gulf shrimp will satisfy your hunger and...More

All I've ever eaten here are the Livers. They are soooo good. Better than mine! So I have to order them every time I go. Maybe one day I'll try something else.

I drive by Nikki's at least 8 times a week and ponder their sign that reads Gulf Coast Shrimp. Tonight we gave it a try. Two in our party got the 6-count extra large shrimp platter, $14...comes with greasy fries, a hush puppy and a...More
