I beg to differ with the banner outside John's Place which states, "Best breakfast burrito in town". It was good, but we were there only because we couldn't find parking at Jalapeno's down the street. My husband and I both ordered the breakfast burrito. There are several combinations available but we both got the bacon and egg. It was very... More

Great Burger & Fries and All American Diner. We've been for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner. Meets all generations of eaters. Never disappoints. Love the easy atmosphere and Quick meal. Feels like "Happy Days" throw back....

Just visiting Tustin so had never eaten her previously. The pastrami sandwich was good and BIG so I did not have room for pie. The couple in the next booth were having pie and reported that it was VERY GOOD.

This morning I awoke wanting some Hash Brown Potatoes. So often they are cooked after being taking right out of the freezer and then plopped onto a grill. When cooked that way they are often crispy (even sometimes burnt) on the outside, but still raw in the center. What to do? The decision I made was to order them inside... More

My family really likes John's Place. We've been going there for a couple years now. Went to the one in Orange before this one was opened. This one is closer and never packed. Food is of a standard American variety - hamburgers, ham/turkey/steak sandwiches, hot/corn dogs, some chicken, fries, very good onion rings, some Mexican food, decent salad bar, and... More

When I’m driving around town and have a craving for fast food, I prefer to avoid the big chains and patronize locally-owned businesses. You generally get more for your money, because that’s the way these local businesses try to differentiate themselves from the national chains. John’s Place is an excellent example of a relatively small enterprise (3 units in the... More

JP's parking lot is at least two times as exciting as the menu. Always seems to be a cop in the drive-thru with a mean Dodge Charger. Last time was a woman cop. Fancy. Bus stop outside hosts a bevy of nature loving commuters. At 2am last Saturday as we rollerbladed the streets of Tustin (don't ask), I snapped iphone... More
