American style Fast food

Has that authentic American retro style diner feel. The decor, furniture, music and menu are all in sync. Very Nice.

As an old soul, I loved the atmosphere and decor. Feels like an american-like 60s diner with a juke box and original furniture. If you want to grab a burger and shake then go no further!

Ok I wanted to try the burger meal here so badly but when I got the chance wasn't happy. Ok service is great, great ambience, friendly and attentive staff but the burger meal was 5 out of 10. The meals are overpriced for sure but still I should get more for my buck.

I love Johnny Rockets for their burgers, they're great size, the ambiance is fun and they provide quality food. However I'm giving them 3 stars because I've known several friends who I've dined with here get sick from their milkshakes, they need to improve on the standard of hygiene especially keeping dairy products in a hot country.

I've taken my children to eat here a few times. The usual fare - burgers, hot-dogs, ice-cream. Fries not so good. Service is reasonable but could be faster. The children like it anyway.

Every time I come here there is always a birthday so I get to see the waiters sing bthdy song to the celebrant. The waiters also sing and dance either to make the restaurant lively or its part of their job, either way it works. I get that retro american diner feel everytime.

I stopped in for a milkshake, the prices on the menu are severely overpriced. The prices are even higher than in the US, I was very disappointed.

It's was rather full after a hectic day but the service was swift and the food was delicious. It's located near the Kuramo beach near the Eko Atlantic City. Ample Parking and easy to locate.

My happy place in Lagos, good burgers guaranteeed and I don't mind paying for it. They deliver too, but if you want nice service and a show (they do the dance) I would recommend. Evenings are better if you want to avoid the kids, but i've never seen it get loud or crazy when families are dining.
