Was looking for a quick dinner and came here. The place was noisy. My burger was overcooked and fries were not quite as hot as I would have liked.

The atmosphere here is fun and once inside you don't realize you are inside of a shopping mall. Try the shakes!

A great place to grab a quick lunch while shopping at destiny mall. Excellent customer service and a menu reminiscent of the old 50's style burger joint. Some of the best sweet potato fries around!

Love Johnny Rockets...but this must be the worst in the chain. We expect a wait, and we're pleases to be seated almost immediately. That should have been a clue. Long wait time for food, food was cold when it did arrive, decor was...puzzling, and the music was...mall music. Will not make this mistake twice.

Same great food and staff, but the new decor has all the charm of an airport lounge. More space, but fewer booths, and the path from the dishwasher to the counter seems to run right through the seating area. Not sure how generic=more appealing to millenials.

While I know it is impossible to please everyone, I find it difficult to believe that anyone could complain about this Johnny Rockets. Our server was a little ditsy but she kind of got the job done although as with many teenagers she needed a barrage of requests before she responded. Aside from that, the burgers (#12) were awesome -... More

My boyfriend and I decided to eat at Johnny Rockets today for lunch. There was a line to get a table but we only had to wait for maybe 10 minutes. They remodeled the place since our last visit, I'm conflicted over the change. It has a fresh updated look but no longer have the jukeboxes at the tables. I... More

Kids love this rest. The staff dress in 50's clothing. There are small jukeboxes at a lot of booths. The hamburger's are good and the milkshakes are deeelicious.

We had lunch here and this is with regrets that I have to write a bad review. We waited for a table (which is not a problem). The waitress was very self serving. I asked if the had gravy that I could order for my fries. Her answer was a sarcastic "We do not, this is not Canada". We ordered... More

Food was great and our server was chipper and friendly, but kinda bummed that they modernized Johnny Rockets. I'm glad they renovated everything, but wish they'd kept the retro theme. It's all gone: No more jukeboxes, bowties/hats, no more oldies music, even the ketchup smiley faces are gone. Everything that made Johnny Rockets unique is no longer a part of... More
