Charming retro burger place

The retro look was the first thing that caught my eyes. I love the decor, 50's-60's style, but new and crisp. Being a vegetarian, I thought I would not find anything to eat in a place like that. But, their menu does have a very tasty veggie burger. I was pleasantly surprised to find that on the... read more

We knew Johnny Rockets from the Eastview Mall in Victor, NY. This location was as fun [better than most mall eateries] with servers breaking out in song & dance. The portions weren't as large, nor the list of milkshakes as long, as we remembered from Rochester but were ample. Still better than most.

Food is great if you like a juicy burger and chili cheese fries which who doesn't...hello? 50's style then the wait staff comes out periodically and dances in front of all the diners to some cute song....adorbs!! I want to work there just for this reason!! Love this place....

This place is like and old style diner complete with at the table juke box. The staff are friendly and the service is fast. The burgers were great and in my opinion better than the other Guys. The real ice cream milkshakes were awesome and the place is fun for kids. At first I thought the price a little high... More

I had a lunch in Johnny Rockets at Syracuse airport. The dinning hall was spacious and I had been generally comfortable for one hour before the departure of my flight. I ordered hamburger with bacon and onion ring. The oil from the burgur was spilt over from the napkin on the burgur, and the burgur actually tasted too oily for... More

If it weren't for the prices, I'd be tempted to give this JR a very good rating. But I can't ignore the fact that my wife and I each had a burger with fries and a soft drink, and the bill came to a staggering $27.39 before tip. Now, if this were a fine dining situation prices like that would... More

You will find this one just randomly placed in the mall. It tried to be very old school diner type. Its great for the kids as there is fun music and the waiters dance every 1/2 hour or so. Its a burger and fries type joint so don't expect anything fancy but if your are looking for somewhere less expensive... More

I went shopping at Destiny with a couple of lady friends and we stopped for a quick lunch at Johnny Rockets. It is a very nice retro '50's diner style restaurant. It is quite small with both booths and a counter seating. I ordered the original burger and fries and it was delicious. Service was pleasant, efficient and speedy. To... More
