“This place just is not what it used to be like.”
Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

This once gleaming spotlight of food nostalgia is now a bit tarnished by a bad economy and cut corners. The hot dogs in the Texas Tommie's was poor quality and not very done, the fried were short though fresh cut in a much smaller serving basket, the Royal burger was half what it was and the shake melted in mere moments. My imaginings of how good this used to be might have been overstated but it still was a let down.

“Fun Food”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

We had a great time at Nifty Fifty's. There was no wait at 6 pm on Memorial weekend. Service and food were good. Shakes and atmosphere were great. A little pricey, but we also all ordered shakes with our dinners. Wish they had a location in Phoenix!

“Not worth the hype or the wait...”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Nifty Fifty's is always packed and a nostalgic place but the food and environment doesn't make it worth the over the hour wait to dine there. Many of the other local restaurants serve a better burger (Five Guys for one), and otherwise it is mostly "diner" fair.

“Not just a typical diner”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

The quality of the food, and espeically the milkshakes, make Nifty Fifty's better than your average diner. It's still a diner, so the you won't be getting the best meal of your life here, but it's great for what it is. They're open late, too, which is hard to find in this area.

“Quirky, fun place to eat”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

Great atmosphere, especially for the Baby Boomer set. We went for lunch. The place was almost filled to capacity. I ordered a crab cake sandwich. My husband ordered one of their classic burgers. We shared fries, which were plentiful. The sandwiches were made from fresh (not frozen) ingredients and were very good. The waitstaff is very friendly. The menu is extensive.
