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

Small restaurant, but very good food! The atmosphere of the place is definitely very charming and 50's like! The waitresses all had smiles, and the food came from the kitchen barely 10 minutes after ordering!

Enjoyed a great lunch with crispy fries and my Veggie burger (they can make any burger a veggie or turkey burger for you) Then they are having a $10 for the canyon rope course ticket special. Got lunch and a ticket for less then $30.

The food here is great. But the prices this place charges is way out of line. 2 hamburgers and 2 small sodas I was charged over $20.00. The food is good, But not that good.

After taking in a movie, our group of parents, our early 20s children, and their boyfriends (6 total) decided to stop by for dinner - the place was very crowded and active (it usually is) but in a planned and organized manner - the restaurant has made a decent attempt at 50s and 60s decor to simulate a diner of...

I have been visiting Johnny Rockets at Destiny since it opened 13 years ago. Each and every time I have excellent service and an excellent burger. This time was no different. We wanted to sit at the counter but it was BUSY! My Dad & I both ordered The Original. We had a nice waiter and great food. I am... More
