A neon-lit trip back to the Eisenhower era comes with burgers, shakes and fries. – In Short
Vintage Coca-Cola ads and posters of Life magazine covers succinctly summon up the 1950s, as do this diner's mini-jukeboxes, red vinyl counter stools and sock-hopping staff. Besides fast food staples like hot dogs, cheeseburgers, tuna melts and onion rings, options like the Streamliner (a grilled veggie patty) acknowledge more modern dietary concerns. Even better for kids, sandwiches come wrapped in paper jackets and nearly everything is served on paper plates. No spills. No breaks. No tears.
Good food, service without a smile – I really like visiting any Johnny Rockets restaurant. You get a good, fast meal for a reasonable price. The environment is always filled with music and you always feel welcomed. I didn't have that experience in this particular location. The company's promise is to offer a smile to every guest. We just a big frown. The waitress made it pretty obvious she didn't want to be there. I did notice the rest of the employees did make an effort.
Of course, my burger and cookies and cream shake were delicious.
