Dropped in here on our way to the shops for a bite to eat. Service was excellent- very attentive and couldn't do enough to make sure we were happy. Food was good too and delivered with a smile.

I was really bummed when the Johnny Rockets location in Encino closed down. So when my friends in Irvine suggested we go to the one in their neighborhood, I was elated. The #12 is still one of my favorite burgers of all time.

You'd do better to go to the local In'N Out burger than eat here. The place is small and the service is poor.

This place is like the original burger place. Good, simple, burgers. Awesome fries (UNLIMITED... FREE refills) :) I'm like a kid in a candy store.

This review isn't about the Johnny Rockets food so much as the great staff at this particular location in The Spectrum outdoor mall in Irvine. Always really friendly, efficient staffers here. Management even recognize frequent customers and acknowledge them and take good care of them. Makes this Johnny Rockets an even better place to go. This is a tight running... More

the kids sliders were just o.k. and the chocolate milkshakes not as chocolately as they used to be.Still good quality ice cream and really delish old fashion Patty Melt. Menu has changed and gotten HUGE! They should go back to simple and smaller menu.

A far cry from the first one on Melrose in L.A. The founder used to watch over, but no more. Disappointing burgers at the few locations still standing.
