Nifty Fifty’s Opens in South Philly After 17 Years & Plans Another Opening in Fishtown!
Back in March we reported about the soon-to-be open Nifty Fifty’s diner at 10th and Oregon. Now the popular retro diner is officially open for business. It has been 17 years since Nifty Fifty’s was slinging milkshakes and burgers in South Philly.
Unlike their other three locations, the South Philly Nifty Fifty’s is franchised. A company owned location is slated to open in Fishtown at the newly dubbed “Fishtown Crossing” on Aramingo Avenue (formally Port Richmond Village). Whether you consider it Fishtown or Port Richmond, you can argue about it in the comments. No exact opening date has been given as of yet.
Unlike other locations, the new South Philly diner will not serve breakfast. Their hours will be weekdays 11 am to 11 pm and 11 am to 1 am on weekends. Obviously due to the pandemic all food is for takeout only and patrons can order at their walk-up window.
