Johnny Rockets may only be a 20-year-old chain restaurant concept, but they sure do manage to capture indigenous American cuisine (if you can call it that) from the 50s. There’s your standard dogs and burgers and fries and shakes, as well as stuff like PB and J and egg salad. The jukebox only costs a nickel, and you can reach one from every glitter-red upholstered seat in the place. Try an enormous, cheesy Rocket Double ($6.69) it is the perfect companion to the heart-stoppingly good chili cheese fries and peanut-butter-chocolate shake.
