Nifty Fifties!

I love this place. Tucked away in Ridley, Pennsylvania, this thing is like a gold mine. Not only is it bright lights, but it's goooood food. Okay let me rephrase that: decent food-- INCREDIBLE MILKSHAKES! Yes, calorie and fat laden huge cups of goodness. Not for the faint at heart. Over spring break, I had two. No, not a few sips here and there. Two. Not half of one and three fourths of the other. Two, huge I-think-I'm-going-to-burst-but-these-are-so-good-I-can't-stop milkshakes.
This is Alex, preparing the "Taste the Memories."

Just some of the lovely decor in the restaurant. When you walk in, it's totally fifties. Jukebox, waiters and waitresses in cliche outfits, red vinal chairs, the whole bit. The smell of greasy but tasty food, and a ton of people waiting to eat it. I've been probably five times in my life, and all of them, it's been packed. No matter the occasion, this place is the perfect choice for a first date, the end of a long day (in my cases) or just any mega milkshake craving.
Over spring break I got two different milkshakes. This first on is the "Reese Milkshake." Okay, here is the one bone I have to pick. There were most certainly no reeses in here. None-the-less, it was still good. I would have preferred it sans peanuts but that's only because for some reason I don't like mixing nuts and ice cream. You can imagine I still drank the whole thing.
This one, however, was absolutely perfect. Mint Oreo Milkshake. Creamy, sweet, minty, chocolatey, heaven. Or, what I imagine heaven to be. The oreos crumbled on the bottom were the perfect gold medal for finishing. I become like a little kid here-- I can't imagine how I finish these but they are good to the last drop. Seriously, they are HUGE. And I can eat.

Anyway, this is a really great place. If for some reason, you're ever in Ridley (and except for the Garrity's, Tish, and maybe Dan, you won't be), you should GO HERE IMMEDIATELY!!!!
