Those of you fortunate enough to have been kicking around in the '50's probably remember the unbeatable taste of fresh cut homemade french fries, hand-dipped drug store style milkshakes and other soda fountain goodies, 100% beef burgers, carefully trimmed, freshly ground and hand-pattied - all this done by people whose pride in their product made them neighborhood legend. Their customers became their friends and their friends became their customers. They exchanged warm hello's and sincere thank you's.
Coupons and contests, computers and corporate offices, prepackaged frozen foods with portion control efficiency had not yet arrived. But when it did and the fast food franchises started to take off - my kind of place closed up.
If you were there and now miss it, I hope we will awaken some fond memories of fun times. If you never had the opportunity to try this sort of place, I hope you will understand we are not just another restaurant, but a way of life.
This is what Nifty Fifty's is all about! Thanks for coming by.
