“Great burgers in VI Lagos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed great burgers, fries, onion rings and shakes at Johnny Rockets in VI Lagos. It's a pretty authentic franchise, not cheap, but then many of the products will be imported. Recommended.

“Incredibly Consistent Quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

JR’s has been open for ever a year now and I am very pleased to say they are as good now as they were when they opened. The management has done an outstanding job of maintaining extremely high standards of cleanliness, food quality and service. Certainly a huge challenge in Nigeria’s “Center of Excellence”.

“Tasty burgers!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

The ambiance gives one a 60s feeling....jukebox, checkered floors , classic diner setting! The service is very friendly , games for kids while you wait.....and the entertainment by the staff not bad....the burgers are yummy , juicy and very filling... Value for money I'd say! And the milkshakes are smooth just the way they should be... Highly recommended!

“Best Burger in the World!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

Johnny Rockets Lagos have a signature "original" burger. Fantastic and massive in size. Not the cheapest but such a treat to have in Lagos where there are no McDonalds or Burger King yet. Do give it a go. Feeling hungry thinking about it.

“It's a meal and a show!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

You are going to be paying $20-40 a meal, but if you look at it as an experience I think most would find it easier to swallow. Nowhere else in Lagos are people rocking out to 50s music every 20 minutes!!!! On that note, I wish there was a way to tip/incentivize the good dancers as some were really trying and others going through the motions.

The brownies sundae was a true treat and this is the only place I know of in Nigeria I can find a good veggie burger. The only disappointment was it was N3100 (~$20!) for the burger alone when I ordered a Route 66 with a veggie burger . But the fact I got exactly what I wanted and it was delicious is enough to make up for it this one time. In the future, please consider allowing a customer to substitute the veggie for beef burger at the normal price.

Overall, well done!
