A good place above the average fast food chain. Restaurant has recently been remodeled. They wait on you at breakfast and dinner and you go to the counter at lunch. The prices have gone up over the years, and the servings have gotten smaller, but still a good choice for a burger, and onion rings.

what can I say about John's place pretty small inside dim lighting high prices for the food considering the quality of food they are getting, overall I wouldn't eat there again unless it was the only place in town that serves food I will say no to people inside were ok good people in Yucca Valley and Twentynine Palms.

My wife and I stopped for lunch at John's Place, primarily because the parking lot was filled with cars. Inside, the cafe was filled with lunch patrons. You order at a counter and your food is brought to your table. One of the best hamburgers I've ever eaten! My wife loved her order of deep-fried Zucchini with Ranch dressing. And... More

This is a popular and often busy place, and I love their 6 oz greek style steak with a braked potato. Their gyros are a large portion, and is good. The Machaca breakfast is excellent. This is an upbeat and friend place, with good small town vibe.

This is a popular spot for the locals. It is noisy when there is a full house. It adds to the experience. I recommend it.
