“Good burgers, crowded, fun.”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I have visited Johnny Rockets a few times with my daughters. It is usually very crowded, as expected for a decent low price restaurant in a crowded mall. It is not a fast food place, people in a hurry should go to the food court. The burgers (including the veggie burger) were always very good, and so were the root beer floats and milkshakes. Good fries too. Service a bit slow due to the large number of customers, but always friendly and polite. A waitress was extremely kind when my little one accidentally spilled her drink. Kids liked the smiley face ketchup and the dancing waiters. I liked the old diner atmosphere, complete with jukebox on the table (which kept the kids entertained). Noisy and sometimes not too clean, but it is to be expected given the crowd.

“great for kids”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Pretty good diner food and good selection. My daughter in law's birthday so we had the birthday chorus and free dessert. Kids loved the jukebox on the table. Noisy enough to bring your kids for casual dining.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Every time we visit Phoenix we make a stop at 5 & Diner. Food, service, value and atmosphere make this worth a stop for families.

“Just Ok”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Got our order wrong twice.
Food was Ok, but this place COULD be great.
They fill your milk shake HALF full and then give you the metal cylinder
it was mixed in....why??? Just fill the whole cup up!
Just average and didn't make an impression.
The waitress put smiliy faced with ketchup in small paper bowls, but we didn't
know the purpose, it was odd.

“Finally Walked Out”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

Can't really comment on the food as we walked out. Gave our order at 1:00 p.m. and got our root beer floats and other soft drinks. After being apologized to three or four times and watching customers who came in well after us finish their burgers asked where our order was. Told several times it was ready, then coming and finally only five more minutes. Walked out at 1:45 p.m. and went to Nathan's. Root beer float was good.
