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.

Novel, yet unfortunately the best thing at Johnny Rockets are the shakes. For a place that specializes in burgers, their burgers are not that great. The peanut butter-chocolate milkshake is to die for, but unfortunately, that isn't enough to keep me coming back for more.
