After myself and my 12 year old son had been to the dentists on Al Wasl, I decided to treat him (and me) to a nice burger at Johnny Rockets, so we parked around the corner and walked in. We were not greeted at the door, there were no visible waiting staff, so we sat down ourselves. We sat there... More

The Worst burger & the worst service in Dubai. Horrible food - can't say that enough. My husband ordered the new Crispy dippin wings. They looked nothing like the picture. Completely unappetizing look and tasted worse. Never going back here, ever.

These burgers are OK - very filling and fairly tasty. Its best to eat with a milshake. The look and feel is the old style American diner. Atmosphere is very good

This restaurant is specialised in burgers.. Both beef and chicken burgers are so tasty.. My favourite is number 12 burger.. Cheese fries with bacon is your best side selection.. The hot dog is so delicious too.. They have a variety of milk shakes.. Good services and professional staff

For me the benchmark for a "fast" burger is five guys. In comparison my Johnny Rockets burger was thin, greasy and not very meaty. The fries were vastly inferior, very thin and did not taste like potato. I liked the chocolate shake but the service was very very slow, it looked like just one person making the food.

It's a diner and it comes fully equipped with posters, juke boxes, even the waiters in uniform. I probably eat here once in 2 months when I crave for really really old milkshake and fries! Burgers are a bit too, but the beef hotdogs are too salty for my taste. Many places serve 'milky' milkshakes, but this place serves thick... More

Heard a lot about their burgers and decided to visit their Dubai Mall Outlet, situated at The Village area. Nice ambience and it takes you back into the 1970's era. Staff are not too friendly !!! Burgers are nice although not good value for money (About Dhs.40 for the Burger only). Their Milkshakes are also average since I witnessed them... More

Staying in Jumeirah

Neighbourhood Profile
Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road. Often called “The Beverly Hills” of Dubai, a drive down Beach Road reveals one enormous, lavish villa after another. Originally residential-only neighbourhoods, they are now also home to an array of cafes, smart boutiques, and art galleries. Home to one of Dubai’s few public beaches, this recently renovated area includes a new boardwalk, running and walking track, with changing facilities and cafes along the way. Another landmark, Jumeirah Mosque, is the only mosque in Dubai that can be entered by non-Muslims. As part of the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, the mosque hosts regular tours and talks about Islam, as part of an “Open Doors, Open Minds” program. A wonderful way to understand more about the UAE and Islam.
