sandwiches, soups, hamburgers, salads and desserts. It is known for the smiley
face ketchup--every clerk serving fries puts a happy face on your plate.
The little touches mean so much at a 50's style diner where the floors are
black & white checkerboard patterns, the booths have jukeboxes and vinyl seats,

Another such restaurant founded in closer proximity that has grown to become
a national chain is Ruby's. Whether you pick Johnny's or Ruby's, it's all about
hot, tasty, hearty meals that kids & families can agree on.
