I'm not sure why Trip Advisor has this rated number 1 !?!?!? It's your basic burger place with some nostalgia mixed in. The food was good to above average. The service was good. Our waitress was very friendly. We tried to chat but it wad so loud that it wasn't much of a conversation. She said she leaves hoarse at... More

It's a 50's sock hop. Burgers shakes an fries. The onion rings are great. The loaded tater tots were awesome. Cool retro look takes you back in time. Lots of space inside and good amount outside. Good dancing entertainment.

First time there....and would hesitate to return. 6 in our party, my Philly was so dry I could not hardly swallow it. The only thing I can say is none of our food was what we would describe "as good".

They have the same menu as Steak and Shake, but the prices are high and the food quality low. The fries are nothing by grease.

I love sitting on the outside patio at this spot and watching the activity on the street. My grandson loves to sit inside in the restaurant to watch the servers do their little jig etc. I have had the burgers, shakes and regular and sweet potato fries here many times and always great....we split a shake as otherwise it is...

My wife and I had a nice dinner here. We both got hamburgers-mine had bacon and cheese, hers was the route 66 single. Got a small salad included. Our grandson likes Johnny Rockets so we got a picture by the menu and a ketchup cup with Johnny Rockets name. Food came out fast, juicy, good, and the service was excellent.... More

Without a doubt one of my favorite Johnny Rocket's stops. Service is excellent and food prep is top notch for a fast food place. Seems to have good management .

Fun evening, good burger and fries. Fun music in the back ground, the waiters entertain by singing every hour or so. There was eight of us fun time.
