When we go out of town for hockey we try to head some place local for dinner. This wonderful diner was less than a mile from the rink, but had it been an hour it would have been worth the drive. Our waitress suggested some local favorites...chicken fried steak and Philly cheesesteak. Hands down the BEST chicken fried steak I've... More

On our way back to Sheridan, Wyoming, my daughter, son in law and I stopped in at this 1950's style diner. We had such a good experience here. The servers are friendly, the food is good and one of the cleanest restaurants I've been in; everything glistens. We will be in Casper again next month and plan to stop in... More

We are regulars and love coming here. Never had a bad experience. Usually go for breakfast, but have had good lunch or dinner here as well.

The atmosphere is consistent with the décor of a 1950s style Diner. Usually very quick service, and great burgers. Possible the best Fried Chicken in town! No alcohol served, but the soda fountain is the real highlight of a visit. Lot's of great ice cream treats--malts and shakes. One may need to wait in line for a while to be... More

On a just completed road trip following the Oregon Trail back to the Northwest, my wife and I stopped in for pie and coffee. We each had a fruit pie, and they were excellent--not too sweet and with a flaky crust. We were warmly greeted as we walked in and well served by the young lady who waited on us.... More

This place did not disappoint! Memories of my childhood...with delicious burgers and fries and the best vanilla shake! The whole experience was made all the better by our friendly, enthusiastic and attentive waiter. Not the sort of meal we eat often, but what a treat it was this night after a long day's drive. If you're looking for good old... More

Great breakfast and excellent, quick service. Very very tasty! Try the eggs, bacon, hash browns, and toast for that "home cooked" flavor! Highly recommended!

Johnny J's had a 50s diner atmosphere. Wonderful service. Portions were very large. Chicken-fried steak provided enough for two meals. The pies looked fabulous but the entree size didn't leave the space I needed to order a slice of pie.

Popular with the locals and always crowded restaurant with a 50's Diner theme. Great breakfast and lunch and good food consistently. Old fashioned shakes, malts and pies. Down home cooking with generous servings. Loud but well worth visiting.
