Nothing even close to the burgers I cook on the grill. Maybe I should start a chain of burger joints.

Anytime I stop in, about every 8 weeks, always efficient, delish and knock out service! GKids love the experience & FOOD , great oldies on, for them to sing to and delish floats & kids specials! Try the hotdogs, you won't be disappointed!

We were shopping nearby and had skipped breakfast. The options to eat were limited at this Mall, so we opted for what turned out to be an American type diner. We sat at the counter and watched as the food was prepared (fresh and well cooked) and were perhaps a bit surprised that the quality of the food and service... More

The atmosphere and the staff here have always been great, but the food is just average. My kids love it, and it sits right next to the entrance to the theater, so we will be back.

Food was good. Menu is limited , copying a 60s diner. Acoustics design makes conversation difficult when busy. Employee theatrics are a distraction.

When there's an average crowd, the place is pretty good but once it gets busy because of the movie goers, you can get lost in the service and the "free fries refill" kind of gets forgotten

We came in after eating across the street simply to have our dessert, milk shakes. She loved her chocolate and I had the Oreo supreme. It was delicious and filled me up well. I have always enjoyed coming to a Johnny Rockets no matter where they are. Simply good food.

I'm always up for burgers and a shake, but if I can get it with a performance, all the better! I like this place because of its proximity to the movie theater, too. Nice place to get a friendly dinner and a show!

I never thought I'd be writing a review for a hamburger chain but after my recent experience with the Kingstowne Johnny Rockets, I was compelled. My previous experience with this chain was only through their franchise at FedEx Field for Redskins games. Given the limited offerings at the stadium, the JR burger was my default meal. The burgers were definitely... More
