|Fries all you can, baby!|
Thankfully, Johnny Rockets is easy to locate- the flashing lights in the shape of an arrow pointing to the restaurant is hard to miss. It’s a good thing that Johnny Rockets offers a worry-free valet service because cars were double to triple parked along the popular Saturday night hangout when we got there and it looked near next to impossible to find a slot by ourselves.
|1950 meets 2010|
Upon entering the restaurant, you get startled with the shockingly bright interior (a stark contrast from the night sky outside) and your ears are blasted with music reminiscent of diners of the past (only on bigger and louder speakers). The working jukebox, the costume of the servers, and the distinctly fifties posters all add up to complete the look of Pleasantville in full color.
Now let’s talk about the nomz. Have I mentioned that fries are unlimited? Yup, you can stay for a good two hours and they will keep refilling your plate without question (provided, of course, that you ordered something else besides just the fries). Besides fries, Johnny Rockets also have a ton of burgers. What would a burger joint be without them?
|Rocket Single (p345)|
This is the Rocket Single and it’s basically your typical burger, Johnny Rockets style- thick beef burger patty with a slice of cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and mayonnaise (they also sell Rocket Doubles, which is twice the size of this giant sandwich). It comes with an order of fries or a side salad.
|Half a Route 66 (p465)|
This is Johnny Rockets’ Route 66 hamburger, named after America’s most famous highway, with the same thick burger patty, Swiss cheese, grilled mushrooms, grilled onions and mayonnaise. The one in picture is just half of it, we had it sliced so it’s easier to eat. It also comes with fries or a side salad.
All patties in Johnny Rockets’ hamburgers are made of 1/3 pound of fresh, 100% pure imported ground beef, seasoned and grilled to order. They’re sandwiched between two pretty thick buns too, you have to get down and dirty to eat one properly, like this guy-

time lapse mode. Instead, you get this guy attempting to fit a Rocket Single in his mouth.

|Philly Cheese Steak (p395)|
The Philly Cheese Steak is a sandwich filled with thinly sliced steak, grilled to perfection (this is copied from their menu), and topped with grilled onions and cheese and served on an authentic hoagie roll (no idea what that is). Too bad, the birthday girl who ordered this sandwich didn’t like the hoagie so much.

- Dubbed my new favorite sammich “Spamzarella”. Two slices of sugar-free bread, one topped with #Spam and mozzarella slices on the other, both toasted open-faced until the cheese starts sizzling and then combined to make the most perfect semi-cheat snack. #makemeasandwich #sugarfreebread #sammich #BTMeats - August 16, 2017
