Johnny Rockets at Hollywood & Highland Center

Johnny Rockets at the Hollywood & Highland Center.
If you want to avoid the overpriced breakfast buffet at the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel, hop on over to Johnny Rockets at the Hollywood & Highland Center next door. It is one of the few in the chain that specifically serves breakfast as most locations are only open for lunch and dinner.

The main attraction of Johnny Rockets is its old fashioned 1950's setting and menu of shakes and hamburgers. This reputation is undeniable as the restaurant is full most evenings sometimes with a line outside. The fun surroundings make it ideal for families too.

Because this eatery is busy for lunch and dinner, I've largely avoided this location at those times. However for their slower breakfast service I found the staff very attentive/friendly and the food is good, fast and reasonable. For about half the cost of breakfast at the Renaissance hotel, one can enjoy a complete breakfast with coffee and orange juice and tip. I've been to this location twice in 2009 and again for this return trip to Los Angeles.

This time I tried the Patty 'n Eggs meal which includes a choice of grilled beef, turkey or soy patty, two large eggs any style, served with classic country potatoes and choice of toast or English muffin ($6.99). To wash it down is a glass of orange juice and coffee. The total with tax is $12.07 (excluding tip).

Other breakfast choices include fluffy three-egg omelette, breakfast sandwich, pancakes, french toast, eggs your way grilled potatoes with your choice of cheese, onions, bell pepper, chili and ham.

The restaurant includes comfy booths or you can cozy up to the counter and watch the cooks prepare the incoming food orders. Items are also available to go. Visit for more information. Location is on the 3rd level of the center; hours varies.
