great burgers and shakes

old fashioned style of burger restaurant in the 50's mode. old style counter,uniforms and way of serving. you will like the fries as well and if they have apple pie get it they are outstanding. so go back in time and get some really good food. wait staff are fun and quick and friendly. eat hearty.

My husband and I took our two kids (3 & 7) here after visiting the Providence Children's Museum. I had been to a Johnny Rocket's before in another state and thought it would be great. This location is a disservice to the brand...the inside of the restaurant was very dismal and dirty-looking (looking back we should have just left right... More

It was a beautiful Sunday here in Providence, my in-laws had just arrived from New Hampshire and we were all hungry for a late lunch/early dinner. I thought it would be fun to walk over to Thayer Street, and we chose to eat at Johnny Rocket's. When we first walked in, there were several young men standing around the counter... More

Would've walked out but didn't want to send the wrong message to my kids. My girls' insist that I give it two stars since they like the... More

We just arrived into town and were hungry so we trekked up to Johnny Rockets which was the only restaurant left open late at night to eat, but it had to be take out only. It was pretty good, but I've been to better Johnny Rockets.

Though of course the hamburgers, which are what Johnny Rockets is best known for are fabulous, but so is the loaded chili dog (with chili, chopped raw onion, and cheese), and even the simple grilled cheese sandwich (you get a choice of what kind of cheese and bread you want. And the milkshakes can't be beat, and you can watch... More

Years ago I would eat at the Johnny Rockets in Chicago so I brought my family to this one thinking it would bring back fun memories with the malts and cheese fries, but all it brought was stomach aches. Non of the food tasted even remotely fresh and everything we ate had a strange after taste. I would not recommend... More
