Johnny rockets is a 50's style burger and milkshake bar. They play 50's rock n roll .
Milkshakes are huge and awesome, burgers too.
They do other things, toasties, sandwiches, salads and desserts but none of these things have ever quite filled the gap.
HOWEVER this place looks right over the F1 Yas track and often you can watch the cars racing round. it's a great place to take visitors, have a bite watch the coolness that is Yas F1 track..Why not phone yastrack first and see if anyone is practicing or you can watch people participate in track days. It's a cool place to take the kids. Spacious area with an outside terrace and a lift up there if you need one. enter Yas at gate 20, the security will direct you or take the open top tour bus, it stops right there.

Loved this place - great burgers and very good setting - felt like I was back in the 60's.
Reasonable prices as well.

After a horrific 2 days trying to travel to Abu Dhabi involving delayed flights, missing flights and then lost luggage all I wanted to do was drown my sorrows in some greasy food. My husband suggested here as he knew it's the type of place I like to eat.

The decor is great. Looks like a good old fashioned American diner. The plus side being it's right on the formula 1 race track.
Service was a bit slow. We had to actually go get someone to come get our order.

We went for 2 chilli dogs, a BBQ cheese burger, cheese and bacon fries and sweet potato fries.

The fries comes first as they serve them as appetisers which is a bit weird but they were fresh, hot and tasted amazing. The burgers and hot dogs followed and we weren't disappointed. I loved it. Just what I needed.

I'm definitely going back here as it's just what you need as a pick me up. The service just needs to speed up a little. Roller skates maybe?
