“Very disappointing.”
Review of Johnny Rockets

We love Johnny Rockets -- having enjoyed them in Portland, Cedar Point and Atlantic City. This was a disappointment. No one greeted us (or the people in front of us) at the door. Instead, a distracted, overworked waitress saw us, cleared a table, then waved at us and pointed toward the table. The waiter was amusing and courteous, but food and drinks took way too long to arrive. The shakes were warm and watery, and the burgers and onion rings and BLT were cold. We ended up just sending it all back and leaving.

The hamburgers are big and taste good, as the fries. The milk shake and ice cremes are very good. the only problem is that when they are crowd, the service is slowly, so you have to be patient.

While shopping for the day in Jersey Gardens we decided to pop in here for lunch, partly because it reminded us of the Irish 'Eddie Rockets' chain. We had to wait a while to be seated but once we were the service was very efficient. The food was nice but the portion size was a little small compared to some other places we ate in. They played some great music and the staff even did a little dance routine. We also used our coupon from the Jersey Gardens discount booklet to get 15% off. Overall, not a bad option for lunch or dinner.

The staff entertains by dancing to old favorites such as Aretha Franklin's "Respect". We ordered take out while shopping in the Jersey Gardens Mall. Although the food was average, the service was great and the staff members are very appreciative of their customers.
