“Back to the 50s”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

If you like the retro diners you'll love it here. There's often a waiting line but it's worth it. Good diner food and often some entertainment from the staff too.

“Awesome Milkshakes!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Looking for good food but fast before going to a hockey game, we decided to go to Johnny Rockets. We grabbed 3 seats at the counter and we were waited on quickly. The shakes were the highlight of the night beating out the burgers. Do not get me wrong, because the burgers are the best in town. Always a friendly staff with an old time atmosphere that makes you comfortable and relaxed. The shakes were so good we even tipped the young gentleman who was feverishly keeping up with all the orders. Great Job!

“Noisy”
Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

The food was okay. The problem was the sound level. With all the reflective surfaces present the ambient noise was amplified and very annoying. The staff was very friendly. Plus it's away from the food court area of the mall which makes it a good place to sit and relax (with ear plugs in).
