After almost disappearing off the grid, there’s one South African roadhouse that’s risen like a phoenix from the ashes and taken its rightful place on the throne. This is somewhat breaking news, so bare with us. On 10 July 2018, the South African/ American rock band KONGOS posted on Facebook that their parents had transformed a roadhouse their grandmother, Sylvia Kongos, opened in 1955, into something called Johnny Guitar Drive In. An ode to years passed; the golden age of rock ‘n roll, if you will, Johnny Guitar Drive In is a neon light-clad eatery located in Alberton complete with a sit down restaurant as well parking lot service.
