We used our coupon from the coupon book we got from the information desk in the mall . We had the most delicious milk shakes , sweet potatoe fries were amazing and the club sandwich was super tasty. The service was very quick and servers very friendly. Would definitely recomend.

I tried out the newly advertised patty melt with cheese grilled inside and outside the bread, and was not disappointed! Also had the 1/2 fries and 1/2 onion ring basket with a vanilla malt... The staff there also provided brief entertainment when they got together for a group dance to 50's and 60's music too. Their burgers are excellent, and... More

Food was OK (and priced ok as well) and the staff was really friendly. The place itself was really nice with the 50's feeling.

We both ordered shakes and could agree that it was the best we ever have tasted. Nice staff with an eye for service. As soon as then saw us grabbig our waterbottles they... More

I give this restaurant a lot for its theme of 50s rock ‘n roll from the cute jukebox at each table, to the dress of the waiters and waitresses to the awesome music blaring. But the food in this Johnny Rockets in Jersey Gardens, was on the low side of average. Imagine a McDonald’s hamburger run through the dishwasher and... More

Stopped in while shopping at Jersey Gardens for some Old Time burgers and drinks. Waitress was friendly and efficient, an the hostess most accommodating with a great table location. Got to chatting with a nice couple visiting from Overseas. Food was good, and the portions generous. Would eat here again for our lunch. God Bless.

After a long day shopping, near closing time, we got in and told us that we could only order to go. I just sat to rest for a while on a couch while waiting and I was feeling they did not like it either! We ordered 3 burgers and a milkshake and even the restaurant was almost empty, it took... More

Popped in to refuel whilst shopping at Jersey Gardens Mall - Ordered a hot dog, chilli dog and fries, two sprite drinks. Waiter was very attentive but the food took forever to arrive and then the fries came out first , before the hotdogs! Price was very reasonable - quite busy restaurant but still tables free and no wait!

Jury's out on this one. Visited here twice, once quiet and the other time it was busy. This place works best when quiet. We stopped in here because we were exhausted from shopping and fancied a sunday. Our waiter was a nice young lad who was busy training a young girl. We ordered our sundays and the waiter asked is...

I had a BLT and piping hot fries. The service was good, the restaurant was clean and the music was Kool and the Gang! Very good. Will go back again.
