Johnny Rockets Restaurant Review

: Johnny Rockets did a disappearing act when it left its location across the street at The River. Now it has made a return to the desert in a former freestanding building occupied by a similar concept, Ruby's Diner, and it continues to pay homage to '50s Americana --- reminiscent of places that were once crammed full of chatty teenagers on every Main Street across the country. This chain features burgers, fries and toasted cheese sandwiches and chili dogs in a retro white-on-white diner setting with mini-jukeboxes on the tables. Chase your burger with one of the famous malted milk shakes or an effervescent soda fountain drink, and don't be surprised if the waiters break into song. Other locations.
