Not very impressed

For me the benchmark for a "fast" burger is five guys. In comparison my Johnny Rockets burger was thin, greasy and not very meaty. The fries were vastly inferior, very thin and did not taste like potato. I liked the chocolate shake but the service was very very slow, it looked like just one person... read more

The fries were vastly inferior, very thin and did not taste like potato. I liked the chocolate shake but the service was very very slow, it looked like just one person making the food.

It's a diner and it comes fully equipped with posters, juke boxes, even the waiters in uniform. I probably eat here once in 2 months when I crave for really really old milkshake and fries! Burgers are a bit too, but the beef hotdogs are too salty for my taste. Many places serve 'milky' milkshakes, but this place serves thick... More

Heard a lot about their burgers and decided to visit their Dubai Mall Outlet, situated at The Village area. Nice ambience and it takes you back into the 1970's era. Staff are not too friendly !!! Burgers are nice although not good value for money (About Dhs.40 for the Burger only). Their Milkshakes are also average since I witnessed them... More

What a great collection of burgers. We enjoyed the milkshake. It was really yummy. I am not a fan of burgers but this was worth trying.We enjoyed the service too.

We were here on Christmas Day Stopped for lunch mid city tour by the Marina walk. The Ambience was great. Lovely and helpful staff. Good food in very large portions, hence a bit pricey. However you go away satisfied and full. They packed up uneaten food as takeaway which we ate at the Dolphin show we went to after completing... More

We were very excited to return here on our recent trip to Dubai but was disappointed. The service was good and they even performed their famous dance routines ( check out you tube!) but this trip round the food did not live up to my old special memories....food wasn't great or even particularly tasty. And there are very few veggie... More

This place was great. I went to the one in Dubai Marina and the service was fantastic along with the burgers, fries and shakes. I love the way the staff all stop and say hello as you enter and goodbye as you leave, a interesting and special touch that makes you feel part of it. Food wise, the burgers are... More

My wife is pregnant and cannot eat a full burger, we asked for a kids menu for her (rather than taking a full burger and throwing it) after having accepted to eat in a smelly place. Waitress refused, stating company policy not allowing to serve kids meal to adults. Called the manager who told us the same and when I... More
