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.
One of their better locations.
I've been to many Johnny's and this one has some lovely views of the boardwalk and ocean. While one wouldn't necessarily think of stopping here while visiting Laguna Beach, my girlfriend and I needed something quick and cheap before continuing on our journey. My chicken strips were cooked well and our waiter was nice. This location gets very crowded on weekends and you have to find street parking (in some cases) several blocks away.
