“Very disappointing”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Having visited Johnny Rockets on our many trips to Laguna Beach over the past years, we were extremely disappointed this time with the way the diner has drastically gone done hill! Having flown 11 hours from the UK all we wanted was a quick bite before heading to bed so we headed to Johnny Rockets as usual. Firstly the diner was extremely busy with only one member of staff serving on the tables! The place was very dirty with lots of empty dishes lying around. The atmosphere was non existent and had it not been for us being so tired we would have found somewhere else to eat. The food was questionable as my husband was served fries which were still frozen! We decided to give them the benefit of the doubt and returned for their famous apple pie a la mode later in the week. This was no where near as good as we remembered! Unfortunately although it was not as busy mid week the tables were still not cleared nor were we any happier with the staffing levels. We certainly won't be rushing to visit on our next trip to Laguna. New management required.

“Clean, great staff, food was good”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Go here for your classic diner experience, nice staff, the interior is 50's themed, which early in the morning could be alittle overwhelming. This works fine for a good meal.

“50's hamburger place”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I liked the little juke boxes at every table especially. The burgers and fries and malts were very good.

“It is exactly what you expect”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Wonderful Johnny Rockets, but the best part is the beach right across the street. Grab whatever you like to go and walk across the street to the park benches. Eat in sublime surroundings for very little money!
