Best Milkshake ever

We just stopped by for some refreshments and to rest from the shopping. Phantastic athmospere and music (but you reallly cold turn down the volume a bit). 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... read 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.

Stopped here for a late lunch on a recent shopping trip. The atmospher is great, the staff seem to enjoy what they do and shows in thier service and quality of food. Prtice is great and portions are just right. It has a 50's theme. Great spot to eat, relax and take a breal between shopping.

the food is satisfying, atmosphere is ok. I had the philly, it was edible. The chili was the best thing, recommend it by the bowl or on some fries.
