Johnny Rockets burns out on the 16th Street Mall

Johnny Rockets, a chain of old-school-style diners serving up cheap burgers and American grub, has closed its 16th Street Mall location. That would seem like a prime piece of real estate for non-faux fare -- but it's going to be a 7/Eleven.

Johnny Rockets was founded in 1986 in Los Angeles, and was bought out by Boston Market earlier this year. There are still three Denver locations open -- in Cherry Creek, in Lakewood and at Park Meadows.

It's been a bad month for pseudo diners in Denver; the original Gunther Toody's at 4500 East Alameda Avenue has also closed.
