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

The food was good, service was great! Burger was delicious! I recommend this place for anyone having a night out or just wanting to satisfy the belly! I can't wait to try this again when we come back down!

The service is the best. Everyone greets you with a smile and make you and your guests feel welcome. It is great to watch your food being prepared and the taste is out of this world.

We ate at the airport location. The food was average. The best thing was the quote we overheard "Rocket is a misnomer in terms of speed of service".

Sit down in a 50's style booth with the old five for a quarter song box right on the table. The waitress is wearing a paper soda jerk hat and a poodle skirt with twenty crinolines’. When the shake arrives it is in a twenty ounce glass and the half full tin cup it was made in. Shortly your double... More

Bad food & service. Place was very dirty. Person whom I complained about was the one who called and asked what the problem was.
