Old-time diner environment. Affordable meals, high-priced shakes though. Unlimited fries with the meal. Good and friendly service. I'm upping my visits to weekly. Maria is an excellent server.

Staff are really friendly and the peanut butter milkshakes are fabulous! Go back in time when you enter the diner with 50's and 60's music playing. A great experience, well worth a visit!

Johnny Rockets is a great place to eat, it has the 50s decore, good food and service. It is located at Sumter Landing in The Villages, Florida, a friendly retirement community. The restaurant had plenty of parking at the back and close to a beautiful lake.

Thank ignatsue
