A fun place with "decent" food. The music is jukebox style and the milk shakes are REAL. The fries with cheese and bacon were yummy.

Johnny Rockets is all over the place. A fun 50's diner with good, simple food, great milkshakes, friendly service and a bright, cheery environment. Sit at the counter for the real experience or grab a red booth if you're a party of more than 2. Not a bad place to eat.

I had never been to a Johnny Rockets outside of Florida and this place was a disappointment from the on-set. Wednesday lunch (noon) and only 1 other table in the place being used should have been an indicator...regardless, we decided to give them a try. Customer service was poor at best with the server more interested in playing with his... More

I am a diner fan, and love the sixties theme of most of these places. Wanting to try a new location we popped into JR's for a snack. The food was bland and the place was almost empty with the manager spending most of his time leaning on the hand rail looking down to the next level of the mall.... More

We ate here with our little boys and felt like nobody cared that we were there. Service was mediocre. The food is just not that good. The onion rings....yuck! the fries taste frozen and come in super small quantities, soggy burgers, etc. not going back!

A nice mid 50's ambience welcomes you with a motivated team of waiters and waitresses. Service is pretty fast and courteous. However the food was disappointing. I ordered a Philly cheese steak sandwich with fries. The sandwich was so greasy that it was impossible to take it. It was falling apart with the leaking greasy juice. Fries were okay with... More

At Tanger Arches, Deer Park, NY Ordered Philly cheese steak sandwich. It came dripping grease and without cheese. When I told the manager that there should be cheese on a "cheese steak" sandwich, he laughed and walked away. I walked away, too--for good.

I'm not too picky when I go out. I'm pretty open to the mishaps. However, today was an experience not to forget. We had to wait to have a booth cleared because it was the waitress' turn to get a customer. One problem they cleaned the seats leaving them damp which we did not expect. We asked to be moved... More
