This place was great! Our food was delicious, the service excellent, the price reasonable and the portions huge. This is not a place to miss when you are in Palm Springs.

John's Restaurant is a gem of a place in PS. Extensive menu with great food options. Something for everyone including breakfast for dinner. It's a diner experience that's not a typical greasy spoon. Kids love the place because of the family size booths in which to eat. Lots of fun people watching too. Don't miss out on the John's experience!

My family and I were recently in Palm Springs for a weekend getaway and we stumbled on this diner for breakfast on our last day there. Wow, what a find. I promise I'm not just saying this, it was without a doubt the best french toast I've ever had! Not only that, the eggs, hash browns and bacon were also... More

Had breakfast at this location of John's. The counter service was very quick and we were able to find a seat quickly even though the restaurant was very busy. The food seemed to take a while to come, but the outside patio was a great spot to spend a bit of extra time. The food portions were very large and... More

If you like food, like I like food, you will really enjoy this place...breakfast (all day), lunch or dinner...they got you covered. The staff are sweet like honey and great portions. It was also located right next to our hotel. This Canadian will return!💜

If you're looking for good food at a great price, John's is for you. If you want a burger for lunch (or dinner), or have a hankering for pancakes or french toast (breakfast is served all day), give John's a try. You won't be disappointed. We've been back a couple of times, and they've delivered again and again.

John's feels like a throwback to the more traditional burger joints of the past--and that's a high complement in this case. It's a great place to grab a casual lunch, and the burgers and fries are absolutely excellent (maybe the best in Palm Springs). Bring your appetite because the portion-sizes are generous.

Pretty bold statement, Best Burger, so I should explain the criteria. Price, service and decor are all given equal importance. John's is one of those "diner's" that you see modern copies of everywhere - it has everything except the lunch counter - and it is all original late 60's. Portions are extremely generous and way more than one should every... More

Went for breakfast one day, had eggs, bacon hashbrowns. Pretty good! Had decaf coffee and the lady kept coming around with only the regular coffee pot. So had to ask over and over for my decaf. That was a pain. You'd think she would remember since only a couple tables were taken. For lunch the next day, had chicken tortilla... More
