Great place for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The burgers are incredible and the shakes are great. Really enjoyed the crab cakes and the philly cheese steak omelet. This is the first place I go when I'm in Philadelphia.

Had a really good burger, some fries and a great shake, with ice tea. $12. Really friendly staff. Any flavor of shake you can imagine, but I stuck with vanilla and it was s whole lot of delicious shake for the money.

Met my nephew for breakfast at nifty fifty at for breakfast. Both my nephew and myself enjoyed it. We asked for our potatoes well done and the hash browns came out perfectly as asked. The eggs were cook as ordered. The server was attentive asking us if we wanted more coffee and re- filled out waters without asking. Definitely would... More

After hearing great things about this place I went with high expectations. I had been craving a chili cheese coney and some chili cheese fries for weeks so this seemed like the perfect place. I went in and the line was out the door so then I was REALLY expecting GREAT FOOD! The décor was traditional fifties diner style and... More

Diner style restaurant with a pretty diverse menu. The burgers are very good, cooked fresh and made to order. I must have hit them on an off day because the fries were average at best. Service was good. Worth a try if you are in the mood for a quick and basic lunch.

I asked for a peanut butter cup shake thick. I like to eat them with a spoon not straw. It was PERFECT. Super tasty and spoon worthy. The chicken nuggets were really unique and cooked just right. I liked the food so much I came back 2 days later (here on business). This time I got a burger and shake.... More

A friend told us about this place and we defiantly agree with them a very good dinner. The menu was simple and everyone was very friendly. I just got a cheese burger and spicy fries. It was simple but so good ! I can't wait to go back to get a milkshake!

I love taking my teenager and her friends to Nifty Fifty's. The servers are always great, very nice, and seem happy to be working there. There are so many milkshake flavors it boggles the mind. I just wish they made some kinds with soymilk or almond milk for the lactose intolerant . . . I am always tempted because all... More
