Description: In July 2007, New York welcomes Johnny Utah's, the urban cowboy experience, to Rockefeller Center. The Johnny Utah's experience begins with cuisine full of flavors & spices which embody the real meaning of Southwestern food. With hearty recipes of our cultural ancestors, Johnny Utah's offers a menu full of zesty Texan BBQ ribs, savory steak fajitas, & authentic Mexican tequila. Almost every seat in the house has a view of the dining room's main attraction, Manhattan's only mechanical bull. Showcasing the full essence of the Southwestern theme, the beast is theatrically surrounded with cascading metal chains & burning candles that echo "rings of fire," signifying the celebration of the icon. The interior was designed as an interpretation of an old western mining shaft with salvaged antique tiles & pony-hide furniture. Johnny Utah's is a place where the music's always pumping and the drinks are always flowing. We have redefined the urban cowboy experience through our unique promotions and promiscuous atmosphere. Cowgirls, cowboys and rock stars of all kinds are encouraged to come in and get wild.

We had a waitress ... got our drink order..tried to leave..told her we wanted appetizer ... brought our drinks...walked away again..told her we were ready to order our food. Strawberry margarita was very good. Steak was old and not seasoned .. fajitas were good. Better places to go.

“Fun but rough crowd”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Bartender was a bit in love with himself and drinks were overpriced. It was a fun atmosphere until about 1am when the guy sitting next to me at the bar, started urinating under the bar. Then it was time to go...

“Okay for lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Not crowded. Always get in without waiting. Mostly female servers.
They seem attentive. Have never seen anyone ride the bull, but I hear they do at night. The food is only average, and I have eaten here 4 times.

Right next to our hotel! Loud and crowded but food was very good. We got a table in the corner. Would definitely go back.

Very crowded but very fun! Free rides! Happy hour drinks. Food is okay but the free shots made up for that!
