Nifty Fifty’s was started in the mid 80’s, but it doesn’t look or feel like anything that new. This place has the feel of a classic dinner from the 50’s or 60’s, that’s a good thing.
I loved the fact that everything was handmade; the burgers were hand packed, the onion rings appeared to be hand battered and the French fries were fresh cut. According to the menu, even the ice creams and mix extract ingredients used for the shakes and sodas are made exclusively for Nifty Fifty’s or by them.
The milkshake was one of the thickest that I’ve ever experienced anywhere, it was truly amazing and off the charts delicious. Same goes for that cheeseburger which was perfectly griddle cooked with a nice crispy exterior on the loosely hand formed beef patty, which keeps it juicy and flavorful. The house chili was alright, not the strongest item from the menu that I experienced, but not bad either.
Diner food is best when it’s simple and uncomplicated, and Nifty Fifty’s keeps it simple and fresh, always a winning combination in my book.
This is one place I’ll definitely be going back to; and I can’t wait to explore the multitude of amazing shake combinations, maybe I’ll even give one of those dozens of amazing soda fountain drinks a try too.
