Johnny Rockets has the right formula. American Diner, good burgers, jukebox, shakes... That's what we like and why we enjoy grabbing a burger at rocket's!

The food was excellent and the service was great! Best burger I've ever tasted!! Even better than Fuddruckers! If we're ever in this part of the country again, I'll definitely stop by. The burger was so tasty and delicious! Even my husband thought it was the greatest! A little pricey, but definitely worth the cost! The chocolate malt was divine!... More

The food is good dinner food but the service was great. It is a small place and we had to take 2 booths in order to meet up with some friends. We were there several hours over lunch catching up with our dear friends. They never rushed us and kept our drinks refilled. The waitress and the manager both came... More

We took our three grandchildren here for an early dinner. They were given hats and balloons. The kids menu had kid size burgers and fries. The adult food was tasty and they had veggie burgers. To finish off the dinner we had delicious shakes. The kids had fun and the service was very good.

Old school American burgers & shakes style. Burger are very good, and shake are huge. It's like the movie Back to the future. My daughter loved it ( and me too)!

He was drilling into tile floor, which created flying sparks. He was instructed to stop b what... More

I visit whenever I am in New York!! You go here when a hamburger is not enough. This is definitely an experience. The way hamburgers should always be. Could work on the service a little but I will sacrifice the service for the coke float :)

I never thought I'd see the day...a restaurant out of coffee. Why? "We didn't get our shipment in." Time for some creative thinking, like hmmm...maybe a trip down the block to the local supermarket? Besides the lack of coffee, waitstaff was unenthused and was not happy to be there (of course I wouldn't be either except, ahem, it's a job).... More
