My boyfriend and I discovered this place on a hungover Sunday morning and were floored! We got the Huevos Rancheros (on special for $6 and change) and it was great. Soooooo meaty (pork green chile and bacon), soooooo greasy, sooooooo good for hangovers. The cinnamon roll we had for dessert was pretty fantastic too! This is probably only a once a month occassion though....because it really is the greasiest, juiciest food ever!
Best Cheap Lunch - 2008
Johnny's Diner - CLOSED
Readers' Choice: Spicy Basil Asian Grill
A $2.89 blue-plate special at lunch? You can't beat that — not even if you go through a McDonald's drive-thru for a Happy Meal. And while a Mickey D's lunch will do nothing but make you feel bad for eating such junk, at Johnny's you're not only getting real lunch from an honest-to-Jesus local business, but you're getting a little kick of history with your meal. Both the style and concept of this place — a counter-service, plastic-tray car-cult joint with a freaky kick of Golden Age Americana oozing from every inch — pre-date our country's obsession with fast food, making Johnny's a window back onto a simpler time. A time when the phrase "Nothin' could be finer than dinner [or lunch] at the diner" really meant something. At Johnny's, it means good food for a very good price.
