Have ALWAYS liked Johnny Rockets, but this was the first time we tried the D.C outlet in Train Station, ( Union Station ), I make a point it was NOT Liberty Square outlet. Man I was let down big time. Table dirty, staff just talking amongst themselves, burgers were yuk, fries greasy and cold, the milk shakes, well terrible. All... More

The burger and fries isn't amazing but it's not bad either. It was a convenient stop during a shopping haul and the service was good so no complaints. I always like an old school diner vibe so I'm glad I went, but probably won't go again!

Perfectly evolved to serve travelers in a hurry. I placed an order for a #12 burger and had my first bite in 7 min., since I was in a hurry to catch a train. And the burger was good. This one gets a “5” rating based on a high quality/speed-of-delivery ratio. Recommended.

We just wanted a quick lunch in Union Station and were pleasantly surprised. I had the egg salad sandwich and my husband had the jalapeño burger. We were served quickly and the food was good quality. They serve the fries before the main course, they were crispy and tasty.

I typically never write reviews, let alone negative ones, but this deserves a review. We had never eaten at a Johnny Rockets before and found ourselves at Union Station right at dinner so we decided to try it. TERRIBLE. It was a seat yourself, so we picked a booth against the wall, we were there for two minutes before we... More

This review is specifically for the Union Station location. We needed a quick bite between tours. Unfortunately, we hit the Union Station Food Court at the height of the lunch rush which I recommend avoiding if you're able. Luckily, Johnny Rockets had an empty table. We explained our timeline to our waiter and he stated it would be no issue.....and,... More
