Always a pleasure to have lunch here. The atmosphere, the tables and counters and the garb of the waitresses bring back memories of yesteryear. The food is top notch and always delicious and staff is friendly and attentive.

Typical experience and food. Service was good, and fast. Maybe too fast. Ordered 2 burgers and fries. One was excellent, the other seemed undercooked. I am very sensitive to undercooked burgers/meat so perhaps it was just a tad under, but I would keep a close eye on if it's an issue for you as well. Seems another reviewer had the... More

Right across from the movie theater inside Crossgates near Macys. Same as all other Johnny Rockets so no surprises here. The first burger came under-cooked. Strange since they never offer a temperature - only well done. So they took it back and re-cooked it. If you are sensitive to under-cooked meat make sure you tell them well-done as I have... More

We love Johnny Rockets for some good ole American food. Its located inside the Crossgates Mall near Dicks Sporting Goods entrance. Shakes for everyone, burgers and chili cheese dogs. Mostly get in there quick unless it's a weekend with people trying to catch dinner before a movie. My teens love the place. I love the look. Its classic 1950s with... More

We usually have a great visit each time we swing by, the service is predictable and the food is consistent. We enjoy the shakes and burgers everytime.

Food is pretty average. Staff is friendly. Music is fairly loud and place is noisy due to being in a mall. Kitchen is kind of slow. Don't expect a quick in and out.

Kids love to goto Johnny Rockets. Always a request when we are at the mall and looking for a dinner or lunch location. Food is decent.

We have been to a number of these places over the years, and enjoy the nostalgia of days gone by. My wife had a #12 burger and I had the Houston Burger, and we opted to pay a bit more for endless sweet potato fries and onion rings. The burgers were done, juicy and tasty. They were a good portion,... More
