To begin: Received coupon via mail; and decided to give Johnny a try. First: Atmospherics are old school and great. Second: Waitress (Tamara Chavez) is exceptional, and she waited on Wife and I each of our three visits, I'm a 10% tipper, however, Tamara receives...20%. Standard burger is served with an ample fresh green salad ( We prefer Honey Mustard dressing.) Milk Shakes are topped with whipped cream ( As I remember, old school milkshakes were not served as such.) Additionally: Milkshake serving is skimpy, and the price too high. Although, milkshakes are not to my liking, I remain content with Johnny and will visit often, and continue to order standard burger, salad and chocolate milkshake.More

Beyond a disappointment and believe the employees have an issue with Hispanics. A 20 minute visit for a burger and fries & a milk shake- came out with cold fries and a melted shake. While we asked for updates, my husband was blown off. I...will NEVER take. Y family to another Johnny Rockets. The employee who’s daughter sat and watched- you should be embarrassed of how you are teaching her.More

Went for lunch. The staff were all very friendly. The food was very good. The shakes were creamy smooth. The atmosphere is like an old school diner. Loved it. They made decorations out of ketchup for us.

Paid $33.00 for three rocket dogs, one order of onion rings, and two milkshakes. When my husband brought this home I was shocked by the price. The shakes were not even full to the top. The hot dogs were smothered in mustard ICK. I have...eaten here several times and loved it. Just be sure and check the pricing before you order. I think their prices are a little too high for this area. This is not the Bay Area.More

Not only is Johnny Rocket's cool for the Americana that it displays, it has great food that is perfectly priced. Meals are not so large that you cannot finish (if one is, take it home) and they are certainly not small. We took my inlaws...there twice in the past month and we all had excellent food. Our waitress was the same one each time, and I'm sorry that I don't know her name, but she was the nicest waitress whom I've ever had the pleasure to serve us.More

You'll receive prompt, friendly service while listening to mostly 50's and 60's oldies. Each booth has its own mini jukebox right at the table. There must be a hundred songs or more. Each is only a nickel. I will say though that sometimes it takes...a long time to hear your choices, if at all. It's fun, cheap entertainment though. The place is very clean with a 50's soda shoppe decor/Coke red and white. There is a display case with miniature old cars etc. Burgers and fries is their forte but there are other choices. The burgers are very hot, right off the grill and very, very good. Milkshakes and malts are excellent too. Price is reasonable and better than some other burger places. You might want to mention if it's your birthday.More

I go here whenever my granddaughter is in town. She loves the chili cheese fries. I have gotten just about everything on the menu. I really love the burgers, great taste, good size, juicy. The milk shakes are awesome. Everyone is very nice. Can be...very crowed at times.More

We recently visited Johnny Rocket's in Carson City. We don't usually patronize franchises, but were impressed by this restaurant. We were greeted warmly at the door and seated promptly. The server was pleasant, polite and accommodating. The restaurant was very clean with an old time...1950's atmosphere. Our food was served timely and hot. For a franchise this is a good spot.More

Had not been in a Johnny Rockets since Newark Airport some years ago. This place was great. Spotlessly clean and in first class condition. My wife had the original burger and I had the mushroom and Swiss cheese. Two Strawberry shakes and lots of retro...songs on the juke box and we were set on a rainy/ snowy afternoon. What fun. Will definitely be back.. The food quality, service, atmosphere were first class. For my money better value and more enjoyable than the Cactus Creek Steakhouse that I have also reviewedMore
