Johnny Rockets Restaurant Review

: You’ll be transported to the 50s at this theme diner, which looks like an old soda fountain, replete with stainless steel and twirling stools. The menu features food such as egg salad sandwiches, fries, shakes and burgers, the latter cooked on an old-fashioned short order grill. Don’t miss the genuine chocolate malts, and be prepared to wait. This tiny place, which blasts golden oldies on the jukebox, is always crowded. Multiple Valley locations.
