Just wanted to update folks on the closure of Pine Creek Smokehouse. It closed, supposedly temporarily, as it was "per the grapevine", going through some changes, but now is up for sale.

When this place was Nifty Fifty, my Honey said, "If I can fix food as good as them, they're in trouble".

I've had their Breakfast Burrito many times. Just wonderful and made with really fresh ingredients. All the people who operate the place are very friendly. Open during the Christmas Season...very important!

I would go here anytime when i head to fossil springs. Great way to start your day is breakfast @ Nifty 50's. Ask for a jumbo pancake! Coffee's good and their service is awesome! Stop by here when you cross pine.

Been there a few times. Consistently good. Biscuits and gravey were excellent, lunch too! Prices are from another era. Good, prompt attentive service each time too.
