We just had egg salad and hot dogs. Not elaborate but, really yummy. The lady at the front was very nice and the place was clean. We would definitely go back when in Putnam.

This is a dog house and has been a gem of Putnam for many years. There are trains inside that kids can watch go around the restaurant. Try the Coney dogs, you won't be disappointed.

Nikki's is a fun place for a quick bite to eat. Lots of food choices. A landmark in Putnam that is always enjoyed. Cash only, but super reasonable!

I love hot dogs and if you do as well, then Nikki's is the place to head out to! There are lots of varied toppings for your dog along with fries and if you have room, ice cream for dessert. Oh, I almost forgot to...More

Great place for a family to get some local cuisine. Fun place for families. More than hot dogs. Eat outside and enjoy people watching.

Simply not as good as off a hot dog cart! The menu options are more varied than a cart! I always felt they place. Outdoors be a lot better with an upgraded dog! It's ok.

Simple fair at good prices. Quick service with several tables inside or outside. You have to get the wieners!
