MJ’s Diner first opened its doors in April 2013 and according to owner Rhonda Johnson, they have been going strong ever since and have had very few hurdles to jump along the way. “People love our all-day breakfasts and a lot of the items on the menu are homemade. So this makes our customers really happy,” stated Johnson. MJ’s Diner is a brand new restaurant in a brand new building. It emanates the feeling of being in your home while enjoying a delicious home cooked meal.
Johnson explained there hasn’t been many challenges since she first opened her doors over a year ago. “It’s a lot of work doing everything, plus running the catering business but I get a lot of help as well which makes it a lot easier. It’s been a rewarding experience this far, we even have the same staff from when we first opened, for the most part.” Many restaurants see a high turn over rate but not at MJ’s Diner. “People really love working for us and that’s great. And we have a really great cook that’s been in the culinary business for over 30 years. I’m so grateful for having such a wonderful staff.”
Asked what gets sold the most on her menu which also includes a Kids and Senior’s Menu, Johnson was quick to reply, “Our homemade 6 oz burgers. People really love it. We buy quality AAA sirloin beef. People also love Fish-n-Chip Fridays and the MJ Salad. Also, our baked goods are all homemade. We have an amazing cook.”
All soups at MJ Diner are homemade, noted Johnson. “We have Beef Barley, Chicken and Dumplings, Mushroom and Potato Soup that are all homemade.”
