Yum!

Yummm!!!! I love the burgers here. I love the 50's theme of the restaurant and how good the food is after going to the bar or just out with friends. They're open pretty late and the staff is usually really nice. They have really good shakes too.

I was really happy to see this Johnny Rockets during my visit to Brown. The Malts are made just as ordered, and the burger was, well, classic Johnny Rockets.

My husband and I took our two kids (3 & 7) here after visiting the Providence Children's Museum. I had been to a Johnny Rocket's before in another state and thought it would be great. This location is a disservice to the brand...the inside of the restaurant was very dismal and dirty-looking (looking back we should have just left right... More

I thought it would be fun to walk over to Thayer Street, and we chose to eat at Johnny Rocket's. When we first walked in, there were several young men standing around the counter... More

old fashioned style of burger restaurant in the 50's mode. old style counter,uniforms and way of serving. you will like the fries as well and if they have apple pie get it they are outstanding. so go back in time and get some really good food. wait staff are fun and quick and friendly. eat hearty.

Would've walked out but didn't want to send the wrong message to my kids. My girls' insist that I give it two stars since they like the... More

We just arrived into town and were hungry so we trekked up to Johnny Rockets which was the only restaurant left open late at night to eat, but it had to be take out only. It was pretty good, but I've been to better Johnny Rockets.
