This has to be the smallest Johnny Rockets ever. The tables are squeezed in an already tiny area and just getting out of one's chair is nearly impossible without bumping someone at an adjacent table. The food is overpriced for what it is; my milkshake...More

Food was okay. This is more of a fun throw-back to the old days. Best part is when the staff break out into song and dance.

Loved the burger and the toppings (smokehouse burger), but found the onion rings disappointing. Nice '50's theme!

Typical chain restaurant. If you've been to one, its the same as all others. Kinda like a Steak N Shake but w/a better athmosphere. Kinda pricey for hamburger and shakes.

Best Shakes anywhere near The Levee. Don't know what happened but they're gone from here. If you find Johnny Rocket's elsewhere, I highly recommend the shakes.

1950s themed burger and shake place - fun for the kids, I suppose, but the food is greasy and overpriced.

Do NOT recommend. Three adults and one child dined here 12-29-11. Two of us ordered sliders and then the waitress came back and said they were out of buns for the sliders. I asked if we could order something else and she said she had...More
