Updating a classic is a risky move, potentially leaving diehard fans of the original Jonesing to see your head roll, preferably out of a cave where it was cut off by one in a series of awesomely elaborate traps built to protect the Holy Grail. Thankfully, George Lucas isn't involved in Eggy's, the Custom House folks' modern take on the mid-century diner where track-lit, power-outlet-equipped tables are clustered around an open kitchen sporting an old-fashioned soda fountain, so yes, abstaining from its tasty charms will require substantial moxie.
