This is just a fun restaurant located in downtown San Jose. Service is quick and food is good. Great burgers, fries and shakes. Take a trip back to the 50s.

We were looking for lunch after visiting the tech museum and we came across this place (American style diner) Great value food. Burger was very nice and served with a brioche bun. Chips were crispy. It was child/baby friendly as well.

A little pricey but always good. I like to eat here when I can as there is not one where I live! The BBQ bacon Cheeseburger is the bomb!

I haven't been at this restaurant for 8 years or so. The menu (and prices) has expanded a bit over the years. The food is just as good as I remembered and the service was better!

I was in San Jose as part of a conference at the San Jose Convention Center. I'm not American, so a 50s style American Diner had a certain appeal to me from a touristy perspective :) We sat down at the bar for lunch and got served quite efficiently.

Service was fantastic and along with it came great food and a great price, had a quick lunch, and I am sure any one of the burgers would be just as good as the original burger I ordered. The Chile was great, and tasted like it was made fresh just for me.

We ate lunch at Johnny Rockets and had a good experience. We were met by a very friendly server and were seated and had our drinks quickly. The food came out quickly and was very good.

Waitress was friendly but not overly attentive. Food took too long. We had to go get our bill bc waitress disappeared. VERY slow service.
