I don't think I've been to Johnny Rockets since I took some Mexican girl out on a date a decade ago at the location at the Block in Orange; she was immediately turned off by my obsession with politics (surprise, surprise). I don't think I've tuned into CBS for non-sports reasons since that cycle of The Amazing Race where the brother-and-sister team beat the deaf kid and his mom. But I do care about Orange County stories, so I just might tune in Sunday at 9 p.m. for its Undercover Boss series.
I don't think I knew that Johnny Rockets is an Orange County-based chain, but it is!

The lessons I learned from the amazing employees who trained me were invaluable and I don't think there's a more constructive way to understand the needs of our Guests, employees and Franchise Partners than to work on the front lines."
Let's see if he pops in at the Block..
