With classic red vinyl seats and black and white floor tiles reminiscent of 1950 America style diners, this international franchise is just a short walk from the Dubai metro’s Financial Centre station, with metered car parking at the front. You can choose between booth or bar seats, or sit outside and enjoy your burger with a view of the Burj... More

My wife and I used and loved this diner/restaurant for many years when we lived in Dubai so we thought we would give it a try on our recent return visit from Overseas. What a shame - gone was the quality, diner style, fast food burger of high quality and in came smaller burgers, greasy onion rings and considerably "upped"... More

Not pleased with their service, courtesy was missing with the team. More focused on pushing for big orders. Burger was too oily. Went with kids to enjoy an evening during this holiday season, was disappointed. Johnny's team is known for fun and joy, this was totally missing in Shk Zayed Road Branch.

I ordered for the smoke house burger, s/berry and oreo milkshake and sweet potato fries. Sweet potato fries seemed to be batter fried and very greasy. Burger again very greasy, to some extent also tasted salty . The Oreo milkshake was I think the best. Well presented and tasted really good. Would not recommend it to a friend.

With an amazing view of Burj Khalifa (world's tallest skyscraper!), this fun burger bar is a good stop in amazing Dubai, UAE. Our lunch for 3: sides of 'fries & rings', an 'Original', a 'Route 66', & a '#12', one shake & 2 coffees...our check: 190 dirhams ($51.)...not cheap, but in Dubai, that's what it costs...and the view is free...

We stopped in after an early flight to Dubai and had the place virtually to ourselves. The sweet potato fries and tuna sandwich are excellent. One of our meals fell off the order list but they were fairly fast in getting it out to a younger reader.

Really disappointed with our visit, the restaurant isn't the easiest to find tucked away on the top floor stuck right in the corner of a kids arcade. Ordered cheese & bacon fries & onion rings as a starter, then burgers with 3 sides of fries. The starters arrived along with the 3 sides of fries at the same time &... More
