The food was typical JR but we were hungry so it was fast and filling. The waiter was the true star here. He was amazing and informative. We enjoyed watching everyone dressed in santa and elf suits walk by the window - santacom. Fun for the kids of all ages.

Very good. They have veggie burger (it is delicious), refillable fries and sweet potatoes fries. I definitively recommend it.

The staff at this location are amazing and friendly. They still make the burgers and fries fresh at this location-enjoy! Happy to see they are still doing it right at this location. Many locations are using frozen meat now sadly and cutting corners, not dancing or doing smiles in ketchup. Glad to see they are following what made them great... More

Went on the morning off 11/02/15, first time I've ever been to a Johnny rockets cafe. I loved the atmosphere, food was great and the staff were friendly, especially the young lad that served us. The only disappointment we had was, we wanted to purchase some merchadise but there wasn't any available, but not to worry it didn't ruin our... More

Discovered Johnny Rockets on a short visit to Hoboken from New York. Loved it! It was pretty quiet on a Sunday lunchtime. Only went in for a milkshake & we ended up having burgers/sandwiches too. All were very tasty especially the shakes. It was just like a scene from Happy Days 😊

Yep. Who would think that a franchise of such a small menu would have the tastiest inexpensive burgers in the country? They also have heart. I remember one time a homeless individual came in and the manager gave him food to eat. Just lovely. What I wouldn't do for a JR burger here in Knoxville, TN!!!!

Family lunch. Waitress was awesome with drawing faces and butterflies out of kethchup when she brought our food. They served a group of people quick and fast even with large parties. Lunch was good chicken club sandwiches and chicken tenders were piping hot. Soda floats were nice and cold on July 1st.

I like going to Johnny Rockets, I think the food is pretty good but the milks shakes are the best. Our group raved over the milkshakes, all good. The fries are really good as well.

This place is THE BEST! Never met a staff as upbeat and energetic as these guys!!! Food was excellent as always, and their chili cheese fries are to die for... My wife's favorite touch was the smiley face that our waitress kindly created out of ketchup! The staff then put on a show for us, dancing to a song called... More

The first Johnny Rockets I ever visited was in Coconut Grove Miami, so when I discovered that Hoboken had it's own branch, I was a very happy boy. This is not high brow or haute cuisine food, but it is tasty and reasonably priced fast casual food. I've tried most of the grilled offering and JR never disappoints. The fries... More
