MIDTOWN — Commuters and tourists hungry for burgers and milkshakes don’t have to travel far from Penn Station to get their fix.

Johnny Rockets — which has another outpost on Third Avenue in Midtown, as well as eateries in Yankee Stadium and Glendale, Queens — opened its newest restaurant at One Penn Plaza, between West 33rd and 34th streets, earlier this month.

The 1950s-style diner chain is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, a release said.

Like other Johnny Rockets locations, this one features dancing servers “dressed in the decade’s familiar soda fountain uniforms."

“Our new restaurant at One Penn Plaza is an ideal location in the heart of a busy shopping, entertainment and transportation hub,” Johnny Rockets CEO John Maguire said in a statement.

“Our goal is to expand in the New York area in the very near future,” he added.
