We had breakfast here & service was efficient & friendly. You can dine in or outside. Tried the BELT sandwich & it was excellent albeit it a bit messy. The manager stopped by several tables to be sure everything was to your liking.

If you want a really good old flashed hamburger, this is your place! Complete with fries, a smiley ketchup face and a shake. What more can you ask for. Don’t go if you are on a diet😝. Love it!

We've never been to Johnny Rockets for breakfast so it was a nice surprise. The waitress was great. The food way more than I could eat and very tasty. I will go back.

Dont go here (Lake Sumter-on the square) for really healthy eating. But fast service, friendly staff and (if you sit outside) free entertainment from the square are waiting for you there.

Route 66 so tasty. Caramelized onions, mushrooms and Swiss topping just melts in your mouth. Decided to go healthy and ordered side salad instead of fries. Makes me feel better. Great value.
