It's our favorite (50's style) hang-out, not only for the food (very good and cheap), but it gets very crowded in the evenings and the good sized game room helps pass the time till our table's up.

I usually get the bacon double cheeseburger (about $2.50) and a vanilla shake ($2) and my wife hits the burger with chili and cheese and an orange creamsicle shake.

The basket of fries is large (so don' t order 2) and stick with the cheese on the fries, the spicy fries is just some Old Bay (looks like it) thrown on it.

The shakes are the best, the burgers all hand made, and the fries are fresh cut. We usually walk out with a $15 bill for the 3 of us. The prizes for the games are not bad either, better than most of those cheap game room for your tickets, decent stuff.

Oh, they also have a half way decent miniature golf course out back.

A group of our friends and I went to Nifty Fifity's in June of '05. We all had small children with us under the age of 3. This place was a great restaurant to bring kids. The food was very good too. The milkshakes are out of this world, as were the cheese fries, hot dogs and bacon cheeseburgers. The waitress was very friendly and the food came out fairly quickly. It has 50's feel to it and had a nice sized game room for older children. Behind it is a mini golf course. I will definately go back when visiting Sesame Place but you should know that it is about 25 min South of SP.
