Huntington Beach, Calif.–On August 3rd, 2009 Johnny Rockets had a special Huntington Beach Chamber Of Commerce Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to welcome it’s new store at: 120 5th Street (corner of 5th and PCH) At The Strand in Downtown Huntington Beach. The colorful new restaurant, which offers an incredible view of the Pier and is just across the street from the new Shorebreak Hotel, features scrumptious Hamburgers, Chili, French Fries, Onion Rings and the best Milkshakes you’ll encounter. I met Owners Lindsay and Wanda Weaver and wish them much success. It’s exciting to have Johnny Rockets Downtown, with its fun 1950’s atmosphere. My thanks to Linda Martin, Huntington Beach Chamber Of Commerce Vice President of Membership for inviting me to the event. I’d also like to thank Huntington Beach City Treasurer Shari Freidenrich for coming to give the restaurant her support. Johnny Rockets is open Monday Through Sunday from 11:00AM To 11:00PM. If you have questions you can call: (714) 960-9011. Now come and try Johnny Rocket’s, It’s A Blast!

Note: For those of us who remember (and miss) Burger King restaurant that was located on Pacific Coast Highway near Main Street in Huntington Beach, Johnny Rockets may fill the void. Its prices aren’t the same, nor does it offer the walk up order window, but at least there’s a burger option not requiring you hike out to the HB Pier at Ruby’s. We hope it doesn’t take a “bite” out of Ruby’s successful operations, but we do wish it good luck as the 2nd attempt to offer Johnny Rockets in downtown HB. The first Johnny Rockets opened in Huntington Beach just across the street next to Huntington Surf & Sport some 1o years ago or so (give or take a few), and it only lasted about a year or two. The next Johnny Rockets opened at the re-launch of Huntington Beach mall as Bella Terra, and is located near the Century 20 Theater and courtyard.
