Not for a quick bite, but good.

The kids loved the burgers, but they took some time getting to us. The waiters are not native English speakers so there was some confusion. The napkins are lame. Milkshakes were delicious!

Stopped at this place for lunch before we picked up a train ride and when you enter you notice the atmosphere is just wonderful. The service was just impeccable and for the value of money we were paying, there was a wide range of food from where to choose from and what we order was delightfully tasty. Would highly recommend...

We stopped at Union Station for lunch and selected Johnny Rockets. Small place, but great atmosphere. All of our food was served hot. Very good. There were five of us, so a bit surprised to see the 15 percent gratuity on our bill. The service was good. I've read some poor reviews about this place, but I didn't have a... More

Ate here with my wife for a quick dinner our first night in DC. The food was actually very good. I had an enormous salad, and also tried the sandwich my wife ordered. Our daughter stopped by and had a shake. Most impressive--our waiter provided the best service we've had anywhere in a long time. We ate at much nicer... More

These burgers were made fast and delicious. There are several choices available. We chose the Original Burger and the Route 66, onion rings and shakes. The shakes were made right in front of us, and tasted like fresh creamery shakes. We will return

I came here with my daughter to have breakfast. While the service was good and the server was friendly, I found the place to be a bit dirty (reason why I won't come again) and the food is average. Not much of a selection for the breakfast menu being that I don't eat pork.

Ok, so where is the hot fudge?!?! Welk, the server was nice enough and made me a new one, but it was awkward. I don't like to complain but if I order a hot fudge sundae I actually want some hot fudge.

Firstly, remember you're in the main transit centre of the city, therefore it's going to be busy, the atmosphere noisy and the food is quick. If it's fine dining and a peaceful ambience you're after, get real, and look elsewhere. That said, the burger was great, the fries were plentiful and the strawberry milkshake fantastic. If you're in Union Station... More
