Shame on Johnny Rockets For Their Fake Patriotism
On this Memorial Day weekend, I thought it was appropriate to mention the shoddy treatment that a serviceman received earlier this month at the Johnny Rockets at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The restaurant boasts of its all American menu. A picture of three soldiers in different uniforms with the slogan,"We Salute You" and the Johnny Rockets logo underneath is prominently displayed on the walls of the many of the chain's restaurants.
Seeing that picture, a soldier, who recently returned from Afghanistan, asked the waiter if Johnny Rockets offered a military discount with a valid military id. He told me that many restaurants offer a 10% and upwards discounts. The waiter answered that Johnny Rockets unfortunately does not offer a discount to serviceman.
Shame on Johnny Rockets for their fake patriotism. The picture should be taken down in all your restaurants unless you are going to offer the troops a discount. You are misleading the public about your support of the troops.
