I wanted to eat local fun but after customs not much choice so I went here and it was good. The chilli fries decent.

While we were waiting for our plane on the air side of security, we spied Johnny Rockets and were delighted to see a place to get a milkshake. To our dismay we saw the price of a milkshake to be $7.80. My wife and I decided to share a shake that we would call "small". Little chocolate flavor! In fact... More

The very nice Ecuadorian woman server made a smiley face in ketchup on a plate for both of us (for our fries and onion rings). The burgers were good and satisfying. The one knock is that the buns were fatter than they needed to be. But, otherwise, no complaints.

Everything you can expect in a Johnny Rockets restaurant. Good hamburgers with fries. Clean counter and good service. A bit more expensive than a similar restaurant outside the airport. Rock and roll music.

When I first arrived at this airport this was one of two restaurants near the gates.I was shocked at the prices. I paid $7.75 for a chocolate malt. I didn't order the $12.00 + hamburgers. I was on a eight hour lay over. After awhile I went across the street and found there were nine different restaurants with reasonable pricing.... More

I had the same thing twice, maybe three times: Original Burger ($12.50) and chocolate shake ($7). Service is great but get served upstairs on the soft cushioned booths. We once slept there for several hours waiting for our flight to Cuenca. Not bad and no one bothered us. We ordered lunch and paid through the nose for it but instead... More

We live near the new Quito airport and as a treat we will sometimes drive there just to eat at Johnny Rockets. We love their chocolate milkshake and onion rings. It is expensive but the portion is large and you have to splurge occasionally. Onion rings are a favorite and are not easy to find in Ecuador so we will... More

We ate here simply because it was convenient. Big Mistake. We should have gone to the other end of the terminal and ate at TGI Fridays. The food is expensive there but the salads are very good. Be warned - simply walk out of the international terminal and cross the access road to the other building about 100 feet away.... More

The wait staff at the restaurant were particularly friendly and willingly prepared a special order of fluffy pancakes with maple syrup and a hard fried egg on the side. Menu called for sausages or bacon with the pancakes, but they were willing to fix that. I had to pay 1.50 extra for one egg - airport prices. Drinks were high... More
