For the visitor, Palm |Springs is always a bit of a hit or miss at restaurants. John's is what it is- a budget friendly diner where you get a great selection of food, cooked to order and no attitude. Always busy and large serving portions.

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.

John's is confusing. Looks like a 60s coffee shop outside, but walk through the front door and you're confronted with a cafeteria line and menu items posted above the servers. Choose your items, pay at the register, seat yourself and a server show up with...More

Not a fancy place but food portions are large and filling, and prices are very reasonable. I had to take most of my blueberry pancakes back to my hotel room fridge! You order at the counter, and then they bring you the chow. Not a...More
