Eaten at this restaurant a few times over the years; the salads & hamburgers are O.K. The recent "Loaded Street" appetizer special is pretty good. Does provide unlimited fountain drinks refills. Service can be spotty.

Delightful stop in. Solo waitress was run ragged, but pleasant and efficient. Burgers are great, cooked perfectly with farm fresh vegetables, served to-go style... smart! Fries are amazing. Jukebox out of order was disappointing, but good experience overall!

I love their shakes, love getting a fries/rings combination (instead of having to pick one), and the burgers are flavorful with a lot of choices!

Catered for gluten free. I was happy. Wasn't the cheapest to eat there as you would think. Friendly staff and didn't have to wait long. My son loves going there with his friends.

We dropped in for lunch a bit on the late side over the long weekend. The place was packed and seemed to have a frantic vibe. There was a family waiting for a table before us and they bailed. We stuck it out. The directed us to a table that was not yet cleaned off, so we stood by it... More

Although definitely not part of my diet, I reward myself with milkshakes after a stressful dental procedure. The chocolate malted here tastes very much like the ones back in Brooklyn--real comfort food. But you have to request the malt. However, the burgers are the antithesis of what I like personally. I do not like a greasy burger with a soft... More

I was familiar with the chain from visiting stores in other parts of the country. This particular location was dissapointing. Walking into the store, we were greeted by glass doors with many handprints all over them. I'm not talking it was cleaned an hour ago and has some wear and tear. These doors hadn't been cleaned at least all day.... More

I can't say the food is fabulous -- it's very greasy. I had a tuna melt and shared sweet potato fries. The grease was higher than most meals I have ever had....they need to drain their food better. The flavor was good but just too greasy. The waiter, however, was very nice -- friendly -- and very speedy.

If you enjoy awful fast food, eat here. You'll be thrilled. I had a chicken sandwich and chocolate shale.

We stopped here after a basketball game and expected the quality and service of other Johnny Rockets we have visited at Atlantis and on a cruise ship. Despite it being a Sunday night and barely anyone in there service was super slow. Food was not the same quality as previous visits to other Johnny Rockets.. felt like it could have... More
