Nicks: "Best southern food!" Birmingham Restaurant Tip by ronin6

Birmingham Restaurants: 22 reviews and 37 photos

Nikis West is a local favorite that has been in buisness for decades. It offers authentic southern food in a buffet style that costs less than $8 for a main and two sides. Niki's does a lot of to-go orders and the take-out menu lists more than 40 daily fresh vegetables and homemade salads. Meats change daily with ten choices. Patrons dining in should not be discouraged by a long cafeteria line---service is brisk and the line moves quickly. Lemon-pepper catfish, baked Greek chicken and country-fried steak are recommended, and it's hard to miss with the vegetables. From the dinner menu, Greek snapper is particularly good.

Favorite Dish: I had the main roasted chicken with a side of fried green tomatoes and fried ocra.
