I have been going there for years to this location. I feel it is a little overpriced and needs a make over. The food is always excellent and fast.

GREAT FOOD ,GREAT PRICE – Ive been going to Nifty Fifty's for years. Theirs just no match when it comes to great food at a great price !!!!!! My favorite is the double bacon cheese burger with swiss cheese,fried onions,and tomatos,mayo,ketchup,and mustard. Its just mouth watering.Add a order of onion rings and well youll be in heven......... My favorite drink is called the "DAVE" named after the founder of this alsome soda !!!!

I havent figured out whats in it but for me i can drink three glasses of this intresting soda. If you go to eat at Nift'y Fifty's on Grant ave and the Roosevelt Blvd in the Northeast of Philadelphia ,for sure ask to sit in "DAVE'S" section its worth the wait. Dave is a great waiter very repectable and upbeat he really cares about his customers. Great Food ,Great Service ,What more could you want ???? Make sure you try the " DAVE" you wont be disapointed !!!!!!!!!!

for great american food, great atmosphere, great for kids – I've been going here since I was a kid, many times, you wouldthink I would be sick of this place eventually... think again!

For perfectly cooked, perfectly hot, and perfectly tasting American food, this is the place to go.

Make sure to try their fresh thick cut crispy, tasty bacon cheeeseburgers with a hot toasted bun, fresh cut homemade golden, crispy french fries with hot, creamy, melted cheesewhiz... And don't forget the hundreds of different made to order flavors of sodas and the thick, creamy milkshakes unlike any milkshake you will have anywhere else. Even the hot dogs are the best hot dogs you'll have around, try the bacon and cheesewhiz wrapped Texas Tommy. Yum! Great breakfast and desserts too. So there is a pretty nice size menu of many good sized, cheap, yummy portions to choose from.

This place is very good for kids, 50's atmosphere that'll take you back, complete with a jukebox, (plays only 50's music), arcade, shirts and glasses with the nifty fifty's logo you can buy), you can also watch them make your food. You can sit at the booth or the diner/bar or even take-out if you want to eat in the comfort of your own home. They also give you cards to fill out in which you get a free ice cream sunday on your birthday! And the service is awesome, once you sit down, you will most likely have your food in under 15-20 minutes, they are very pleasant as well.

You cannot go wrong with Nifty Fifty's, the food is always hot and fresh, service is excellent, great for people of all ages. The place is also very clean. You have to be CRAZY not to LOVE this place!

Loved this place since I was a kid! – I grew up in Northeast Philly eating at Nifty Fifty's. Its a great place to take kids, family, friends, or a date. The atmosphere is friendly and 70's with the jukebox and vinyl booths. Food is cheap, a great price for the quality (most items are under $5). Do NOT leave without trying a milkshake! Its to die for. My boyfriend and I ordered two burgers, two sodas, side fries, and a milkshake and our total was less than $20. If you go to the one near Franklin Mills Mall, ask for Dave!! Needless to say, the service is great - friendliest waiters you'll ever meet.

Great if you have kids – I LOVE Nifty Fifties. It's inexpensive, has the best milkshake selection I've ever seen and is one of the few places that I can take my 4 month old daughter without fear that she'll disturb the other diners.

Good food and prices – Visited this location and the one in Bensalem. Very good milkshakes, mix any soda you want, spicy fries, burgers, salads, and the Bensalem location also has an arcade which is great for the kids. Family friendly and family prices

Best Breakfast in Town – I have never had a better breakfast anywhere! The Banana Pancakes were awesome. I loved the fresh coffee and especially the fresh squeezed O.J. served in a frosted mug. The eggs were cooked to perfection and the bacon was cooked just right. The service and value were the best around by far!!!!!

A Must Visit – My family and I just recently visited Nifty Fifty's for the first time, and I cannot begin to explain how pleasantly suprised we were. from the hospitality, to the atmosphere, to the food. We could not have made a better choice on where to eat. their place is also on of the cleanest and well kept restaurants that I've seen in a long time. we'll definately be back!
