The place is rather nice, clean and welcoming and great for the whole family, Food is above average for Lagos and the best milkshakes in the country! The problem is that for a family of four with two young kids you can easily spend $200 for a burger, chips, milkshake each..... ?

They serve mainly burgers, though we fell more in love with their onion rings, crispy and not at all oily. So also their chilly chips. With their juke box and the staff dancing on their theme song every half an hour, it reminds you of America, its a romantic place and very clean. Burgers are definitely juicy, but not spicy,...

Good burgers, reasonable prices (except for the French fries! 1000N for a small dish like that?). The interior is nicely decorated, maybe they should reduce the lighting to make it a bit more cosy.

A visit to Johnny Rockets provided me and my business counterparts with a perfect escape from the localized Nigerian & traditional Indian cuisine that we indulged in for over a week. The hamburgers (#12, houston etc.), oreo milkshake, american fries and onion rings didn't give us an opportunity to say 'Bon Appetit'. The interiors are clean and staff is extremely... More

American in Nigeria, missing a taste of home! Well, Johnny Rockets hit the spot. Great burger, milkshake made with real American ice cream, and a brownie that, well, will make you cry! If you want to know what the Beach Boys, California girls, and the ocean would taste like if it were a restaurant, this is it!!! And, if you... More

Is very clean,neat inside,nice interior and good service. The only thing is a bit pricy for fast food place. We paid 160-170U$ just for hamburger and milk shake each(3 young kids and... More

An all time fave for the kids, with the music selection, great burgers and fries and of course some colored pencils and coloring pads for the little ones. Always a great place for a quick bite and stop over with the children!

Since there is no McDonald's, Burger King or Hard Rock Cafe in Lagos, we opted to head over to Johnny Rockets, an American style diner on VI. The restaurant has several booths and a jukebox, the decor was very authentic and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The menu offers a selection of burgers, toasted sandwiches, salads, hot dogs,... More

The best burger i have ever had .... the patty and the bun simply melted in my mouth. Visited this place with a buddy some time back and for Lagos std the prices were quite steep (USD 25 appx) but since we were hungry and nothing else open at that time went for the burger.
