Johnny Rockets still has a retro menu that is inviting but the original restaurant at Destiny was much better than the current one. I've been there twice recently. First time was better than the most recent. This time they didn't to the smiley faces with ketchup for the kids as usual and fries are NOT include with many sandwich entrees.... More

I love Johnny Rockets! Ok, most because it brings back memories of going to the mall and getting Johnny Rockets growing up. We wanted to stop quick, grab some lunch and a malt and continue our trip home. It was Sunday, about 2pm. Busy, but it wasn't lunch or dinner time so I thought it would be OK. I walked... More

If you must eat at the mall, this place is okay. The noise and clatter levels are high, and the food is mediocre. For a few dollars more, you could go to a local diner and have a more comfortable, better meal.

The food was surprising good here, and the bill didn't cost as much as I thought it would. The service was great. We were a small group of 6 (with 2 children) and we were all happy with the meal.

As an employee in Destiny USA, who only gets 30 min for lunch, I don't have time to deal with the crowds at the food court. I can call my order in and it's ready FAST! I've never had a bad experience there. BTW I was sad to see the one in Eastview Mall close. Try the route 66 Burger!

We came here for supper after a movie. I could deal with the wait in line since it was as Saturday around supper. However once we were seated--directly under a very loud speaker--it was no less than 10 minutes before ANYONE came to us. It's no longer what I'd call reasonably priced--fries now cost extra and even though they are... More

I had the original burger and my wife had the veggie burger. Mine was good but not as good has I have had before, seemed like a different beef. My wife had the veggie burger and they put mustard on it which she said ruined it. The chocolate milkshake was great. The service was good and we had a real... More

I always enjoy the food from Johnny Rockets. I was disappointed it moved and does not have the same atmosphere as in its old spot(50's looking place).

Yogi Berra said it best: If it ain't broke, don't fix it. This about sums it up in the revamped Johnny Rockets at the Destiny Mall. It has lost it's homage to the burger joints of the 50's in it's new location. Now it has the industrial/urban rebirth kinda look. Not inventive, and the size of the burgers have shrunk... More
