There are many activities that should not be performed on an empty stomach, including swimming, surgery, and swimming 30 minutes after having your appendix removed. Acquire activity fuel with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of diner fare at Johnny Angel’s Diner located in the Shoppes at East Pointe Landing in Jacksonville.
Johnny Angel’s is a retro American diner and soda shop that amps up modern times with a slew of ’50s favorites, including burgers, fries, hot dogs, and sip-worthy sweet treats. Topping the menu is the All-American, a classic cheeseburger and fries ($7.99), that pairs properly with a creamy milkshake ($4.49) or malt ($4.99) available in 10 flavors including chocolate, strawberry, and cookies ‘n' cream. Sink your sharpened mouth knives into The King, a traditional Reuben sandwich ($8.99), or Three Stooges, a 1/2-pound deli sandwich loaded with turkey, ham, roast beef, and slap-stick satisfaction ($8.99). Johnny Angel’s is also open for breakfast, offering a wide variety of griddle delights, three-egg omelettes, and combo platters.
Johnny Angel's outshines its strip mall storefront location by paying homage to the days when malls were geometrically undefined and squares were still considered cool. The retro space is decked out in the finest ’50s festoonery including black and white checkered tile, a classic counter, and blue vinyl booths.
- Johnny Angels is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. When you arrive, order a milkshake (chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, cherry or blueberry for $3.79) or a cherry-, vanilla- or chocolate-flavored soda ($2.39) and take time to look over the massive menu. Breakfast alone takes up two pages. – J.F. Mix, Florida Times-Union
