Johnny Rockets:
Signature of Craftsmanship

Experience the inviting charm of a classic diner re-envisioned by the next generation. Passion for food comes first here, and it’s served by staff who know a thing or two about creating a great burger. Time-honored traditions like hand-spun shakes are complimented by unique new offers like craft sodas and floats. We’ve honed our craft and boast the best burger in town. We’re willing to put our signature on every dish that leaves our kitchen.

The NEW Johnny Rockets

  • What was once an all-American restaurant has opened its doors to attain a truly global culture. We draw inspiration from cuisine and culture all over the globe. We offer best-in-class burgers, shakes and fries.
  • What was once an offering of classic ice cream shakes becomes a select variety of hand-spun shakes with a new offering of craft soda floats.
  • Seating is no longer prescribed by permanent booths and fastened swivel chairs. Flexibility to move tables and various types of chairs encourages our customers to engage.
  • The jukebox played a memorable role in the previous experience. It’s time for an upgrade to the uniquely curated Johnny Rocket’s Spotify channel featuring modern remixes of some of the most popular classics.
  • The hot rod car culture once ruled the restaurant vibe. Nowadays, customers can relate more to the bicycle as a transportation icon.
  • One day, a long time ago, singing, dancing servers were all the rage. At Johnny Rockets 2.0, our servers share their passion for food through superb customer service.
