This is a good place to get a burger and shake right across from Main Beach. It's nothing special, although the atmosphere is fun.

Laguna Beach Restaurants can be expensive. Johnny Rockets is a bargain. Not too much in the healthy food category but a great taste of all-american burgers and fries. Order a custom shake to share, they are huge. Kid friendly!

Typical Johnny Rockets. Quality has gone done, expect only Male waiters during the daytime (Breakfast and Lunch)... prices have gone up, food is still good, but a bit overpriced, service is slower... but still OK place to go for Breakfast or Lunch, not recommended for Dinner.

Totally dug this place! Loved how everytime Sinatra came out the staff stopped what they were doing and started dancing sometimes on the bar. Such a good time, great food and hilarious service and that view of Laguna Beach is just astounding. You will love it. A definite stop on your travels

We needed a mid afternoon snack after trolling the art shops and stopped here for a light snack. Got a chili dog with a combo side of fries and onion rings. Food was decent quality, place was clean but the best part was one of the best waitresses we've ever encountered. In spite of our budget meal she gave us... More

We came in for lunch during a recent day trip to Laguna Beach. Classic diner décor, relaxing ambience, funny waitress (we love you Juanita!), and lots of one-of-a-kind hamburgers on the menu. Had the Houston with pepper jack cheese, jalapenos, lettuce, tomato and spicy mayonnaise. With fries of course! And a large Hershey’s chocolate shake. Excellent burger, finger-licking fries, and...

This Rocket sit right across from the main beach. The view is great and the food very good as usual. The server was attentive and kept our drinks full. They have the best tasting turkey burgers around. Great place for lunch.

To be fair, we only had coffee. The service and atmosphere were good. The coffee, as was explained, was just your ordinary everyday brew, but it was good.
