Johnny Rockets

I bring you one of America’s last cultural relics…Johnny Rockets, the home of America’s first burger. Finally, your sims can enjoy a tasty hamburger straight from the 50s…literally! All kidding aside, Johnny Rockets is a fine family diner which is all the rage in today’s youth. I made it based on a real Johnny Rockets diner (see pictures) and I used many deco items to make it highly realistic. It took me a while to make all those custom walls and floor but I prevailed. Enjoy!

A special thanks to Martine for inspiring me and for providing me with the links to many of the CC items included.

Lot Specs:
Community Lot – 2X2
Fully furnished as seen in pictures
Space for 22 sims to dine simultaneously


This lot has been cleaned with Clean Installer Requires Pets to play

UPDATE : I've corrected all the known issues which were missing walls, missing CC and flashing blue objects. From now on download ONLY the Johnny Rockets UPDATED.rar file WITH the Johnny Rockets Walls.rar file. This second file includes only 2 walls which are crucial and which I tried time after time to include in the original file but failed. They are the top 2 walls of the front logo. If these 2 walls do not appear on the actual building, they will nonetheles be in your files. You may have to place them yourself. Sorry about this but its my last resort.

To correct the flashing blue columns I included the base mirror from the "Grand Trianon" collection for those who didn't already have it. You may delete it from the lot (it's on the roof) but it needs to stay in your downloads folder.

I tried including the poster recolors but Clean Installer just doesn't recognize them. I'm sorry to say you may have to download them yourself from the links I've provided below if you wish.

Sorry for the inconvenience. This should correct the known issues but if new ones arise feel free to bring them to my attention.

My Policy:
Do not use this lot as a base for any other lot. Do not upload to the Exchange and claim it as your own. Do not change this lot to upload anywhere else. If you wish to upload the intact lot in any other site I must first approve and be given full credit.

I do not presume to take ownership of any image used to create the finished pictures of this lot. These images while freely available for the public to use have their respective owners who disserve full credit for their work.

This reminds me of of something that happened a few years ago. There's a Johnny Rockets in front of a mall in Northern Massachusetts. Two friends & I went there for lunch after a few hours of shopping. Yes, the food was really good. But just as we were leaving, one friend just had to make a comment. He was like, "sure, the food may be from the 50's, but the prices certainly aren't." Of course, that sent the other two of us into peals of laughter. But all things aside, this is very cool. Downloading!!!
