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

We all had burgers and they were good.We paid 2 dollars for the fries but they were unlimited which I thought coming from the UK was cool. The seating was uncomfortable , intended to get you in and out quickly. Service was OK.

JRs has moved to a new location in Destiny and it is a noticeably different restaurant. The changes are both positive and negative, with the overall result still the same--this is an okay place to get a meal, but nothing to get excited about. Gone are most of the retro touches that made for a fun atmosphere at the old... More

We stopped here on a Saturday night so there was a little line but it moved fast. I think they moved from a different spot in the mall so it seemed a little more crowded then we remembered. I had the Bacon Cheddar Single. It was pretty good, maybe not as tasty with the special sauce as I was expecting... More

Instead of a burger went with a chicken sandwich. Lots if onions and mushrooms and cheese. An extra charge for chicken and fries. Ouch. Must have to charge more because the rent is high in this maul. New digs for Johnny's. Seems a bit smaller. Onion rings on my wife's order were so so. I'll find someplace else on my... More
