There is a distinct lack of warmth in this pristine but sterile and ice-box cold retro cafe which serves over fussy and mediocre and certainly over priced food.The expense is a Lagos thing but the quality of the food is just not good enough to justify the hefty price tag.Service is cumbersome, awkward and overbearing.

Too over priced. Not worth the price of the food items. Enjoyed the milkshakes. Burgers are not all that.

I've there a few times and what strikes me is how nice the food is (the chicken salad is always amazing with really fresh and crunchy lettuce).The ambience and decor is similar to the parent franchise owner. Unfortunately, the place always seems really empty which i think is demotivating to the hardworking and friendly staff. It needs a lot more... More

Recommended by the locals who could afford to eat there. We enjoyed our meal and could recommend it to others. Best location and well known by most who work with international companies.

Loved... the MUSIC. after that, the rest of it just wasn't all that and a bag of chips. A bit pricey for not particularly spectacular meals, but as I said, the music made up for it. Staff were friendly, but tired.

We enjoyed great burgers, fries, onion rings and shakes at Johnny Rockets in VI Lagos. It's a pretty authentic franchise, not cheap, but then many of the products will be imported. Recommended.

JR’s has been open for ever a year now and I am very pleased to say they are as good now as they were when they opened. The management has done an outstanding job of maintaining extremely high standards of cleanliness, food quality and service. Certainly a huge challenge in Nigeria’s “Center of Excellence”.

The ambiance gives one a 60s feeling....jukebox, checkered floors , classic diner setting! The service is very friendly , games for kids while you wait.....and the entertainment by the staff not bad....the burgers are yummy , juicy and very filling... Value for money I'd say! And the milkshakes are smooth just the way they should be... Highly recommended!

Johnny Rockets Lagos have a signature "original" burger. Fantastic and massive in size. Not the cheapest but such a treat to have in Lagos where there are no McDonalds or Burger King yet. Do give it a go. Feeling hungry thinking about it.
