Service with a Smile!

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... read 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

Really disappointed with this visit. Have been before and it's been Ok, nothing special, hence I've been generous giving two stars. This time they were very busy. They had plenty of staff, so it was annoying to have to wait almost an hour for our meal. The drinks also took ages, and arrived in dribs and drabs. When the food... More

having visited a number of Johnny Rockets over the years this certainly is not the best. Staff were ok, certainly in no rush to serve us despite the empty restaurant. food was good when served. so no complaints there.

So me and my friends walk into the quaint 70s styled Johnny Rockets and were like this is cool. We order our food and it came out cold,disgusting, and terrible. My burger that I asked for well done still was pink and looked like it was still alive. Our food was way over priced and I will never go back.

If you want to sit down for a quick, greasy, all-guilt meal with the family, you just can't beat J.R. You don't want to make this a daily routine, but every once in a while J.R. satisfies that craving and it will not dent your wallet much. Milk shakes are sugary sweet and a slice of sin, but who cares!... More

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
