They have an extensive menu posted behind the counter, which is where you order. They also have specials every day. The sweet potato fries were wonderful as well as the ribs. Really enjoyed it!

And the lunch looked good too. No frills amongst all the upscale dining choices makes John's an oasis when you're just looking for classic American fare. Good portions, great prices and easy service. Friendly staff, clean restaurant, can't ask for anything more.

This restaurant was walking distance from my hotel. I ate here every day of my stay, primarily for breakfast. Everything I had was good. I also had a hamburger for lunch one day and it was good as well.

A tip from one of the locals convinced us that John's Restaurant would satisfy our craving for breakfast fare with a side of french fries. Fast, friendly service and delicious food - a fine start to a delightful day in Palm Springs.

Breakfast, lunch or early dinner. all good, prices incredible. On the main drag too. Just don't expect much on the design front, moirder at the counter, but a large venue. Locals hangout too.
