Overpriced, good location in the Summit, nearby places better in most ways, okay for 1 shot, hamburgers good, overpriced

I only come here for milkshakes, they are the best! Everything on the menu is good, it's your standard 50s diner fare, but the milkshakes really stand out above everything else.

The restaurant does a good job and recreating the 1950s Burger-Joint feel. It has upbeat music and good food. The portion sizes are very generous. You can't go without trying the shakes!

Went through drivethru so don't have anything bad to say about what I ordered. They made a great shake and the staff seem nice

Typical for chain type fast food restaurants. The burgers and milkshakes are good. The burgers are actually fairly large and you can share one if you are not a big eater.

Disclaimer- I didn't try the milkshakes. The 66 Hamburger was good, but nothing that couldn't be found at Steak n Shake. Fries we very mediocre and onion rings nothing to write home about. Sorry, but I wouldn't go back. Better ways to spend my food dollars.

A little overdone. Typical chain type food, the Burger was good, a large step up from most fast food. Onion rings were a little soggy. Waitress was friendly and delivery was prompt

This used to be a great place for a quick, good hamburger. We've been here many times. But this is the second time now and I doubt we'll be coming back. We went on a Saturday evening after one of the movies at the theatre near the restaurant and, as usual, has to wait a while for a table. The... More

Johnny Rockets does a good job at making old fashioned styled burgers, fries, and shakes. The service was fantastic and the food gave me a flashback of diner food when I was a kid. Of course there are a few modern twists on the menu to keep things interesting. I would definatly recommend stopping by.
