Just had a Smokehouse Double with a side of Cheese Bacon Fries, really enjoyed both! Had an offer code but the offer didn’t really suit a solo diner (buy a burger - get a 2nd free!) so I was offered a Milkshake as an alternative!...More

If you want a throwback diner 1950's style, check out Johnny Rockets in downtown San Jose. It's a great place to grab a burger, fries and a shake.

I think this is the last Johnny Rockets around here now. They have really good food and it's a fun little diner. It can get busy and loud. They generally have a limited menu during the holidays for some reason.

As you get off the Light Rail, Johnny Rockets is right on the other side of the train. We went for lunch before a show at the Center for the Performing Arts. Your order is taken at the table, and service was quick.

One of my favorite places if I want to splurge on a Burger and a Milkshake! The retro diner motif adds to the experience. Don't go if you're on a diet! The yummy food is way too tempting!!!

Stopped by for a quick bite after I ran 13.1 miles and they were nice and quick. Needed some protein to recover and this did the trick. Very friendly servers and a great burger!
