“Affordable and great location”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

My husband and I stopped here for a quick lunch because we were with a tour and had limited time. We hoped that we would get seated and served quickly and that prices would be reasonable. Worked out great for us.

This Johnny Rocket's is located right on Ocean Drive in the heart of South Beach. Like most other restaurants in the area, there is outdoor seating and nice big umbrellas to protect from the elements. They even have a number of classic booths outdoors.

We were seated immediately for lunch and our server was great. Our food came up fast and was just as delicious as we've had at other Johnny Rockets. Fries were nice and hot, burgers were tasty. Prices were about $7-$8 for the burgers and extra for the fries. Not bad for South Beach.

We enjoyed a nice lunch, good service, and good people watching, without breaking the bank. Great ending to a visit to South Beach.

“Pricey but clean nice restaurant.”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

I liked french fry and hot dog. Well a bit expensive.

But you dont see such a clean spacious place in Santo Domingo too often.
So I can recommend this restaurant to tourists.

I would never recommend this to local friends,,, caz you can eat hot dog 1/4 the price everywhere and not bad at all in Santo Domingo.

I would say we pay for the atmosphere...

“Great service and best valued meal”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

I had breakfast there today, ordered the special (2 eggs, bacon or sausage, pancake or potatoes and toast + coffee, tea or juice... All for $ 3.99. The waitors were really nice and friendly, service was very good and the place was clean. Probably the best value for a full breakfast in the area. Would definitely go back.

“Great Service”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Ate at Johnny Rocket's twice and both times seated very quickly for a group of four. We had cheerful servers for both Breakfast and Dinner. A hostess did not walk with me and nag about a fantastic 10% off a first drink and the environment was very laid back. The food is what you would expect from Johnny Rockets and tasted about the same as back in Chicago. It was nice to get away from the stereotypical Miami feel and just grab a bite without being bothered.

Some may enjoy the night life on Ocean Drive but if you are with family, or just looking for something simple that does the job, I definitely recommend this spot. I had a frustrating experience in surrounding restaurants and felt this was how a normal restaurant should be. A place to eat, take a break, and not be bombarded by shady marketing all while staying on the main drive.

Also, this location is actually where they filmed the famous Chainsaw Scene in Scarface right above the eating area. During the evening they actually played the movie and we caught the end while we ate which was a neat addition to the ambience.
