The last time we had Johnny Rockets was when we were in Kuwait 3 years ago. We miss it so much. The hamburgers are to die for. The service was fast and the food was awesome! Definitely a place to go back to often.

Johnny Rockets is an international restaurant chain that provides the food, fun and friendliness reminiscent of feel-good Americana. On June 6, 1986, the first Johnny Rockets opened on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, offering guests friendly service and great food in a fun and nostalgic atmosphere.

Every original Johnny Rockets restaurant boasts great tasting food from a menu of favorites including juicy hamburgers, classic sandwiches, and hand-dipped shakes and malts. Guests also enjoy an all-American look and feel, tabletop jukeboxes and authentic decor. This classic diner also entertains with dancing every half hour.
