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

Non of the food tasted even remotely fresh and everything we ate had a strange after taste. I would not recommend... More

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
