Johnny Rockets in monroe?
« on: February 27, 2008, 06:05:12 PM »

I just drove by the auto detailing place (near the tracks) on front st near the drive thru liquor store. There was a banner on the building that had the Johnny Rockets logo and the words "now hiring". Anyone know anything about this?

All I know is that place isn't all it's cracked up to be. There is one near work, just so so.

From their website:

Johnny Rockets is an international retro diner-style restaurant chain that provides the food and friendliness reminiscent of feel-good Americana. On June 6, 1986, the first Johnny Rockets opened on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, offering guests friendly service and great food in an atmosphere that is fun and nostalgic.

Every original Johnny Rockets restaurant boasts great-tasting food from a menu of all-American favorites including juicy hamburgers, hand-dipped shakes & malts and freshly-baked apple pie. Guests also enjoy an all-American diner look and feel, servers who know the secret behind getting ketchup out of the bottle, tabletop jukeboxes that belt out tunes for a nickel and authentic d├ęcor.

Johnny Rockets is the place where every Guest can enjoy all-American favorites served with a smile!

Just what we need another restaurant to compete with J's  :)

I have been to the one by Great Lakes Crossing's once. From what I remember, it was pretty standard 50s diner style setup. Food seemed good enough. I mean, I can't think of an 50s diner where I was blown away by the cuisine :)

They have the best milkshakes and fries, at least the ones in Atlanta do. However, as much as I love to eat there, the food *always* makes me have ... ummm... immediate and intense gastrointestinal distress!!!!  :-[

Actually Johnny Rockets are not bad.  I have ate at the one in Alantic City and the one in Nashville.  Both had good burgers, fries and shakes.   Just  have to look at their competition.  I think J's plac is safe.

I think they're overpriced for what you're getting.

I'd rather go to a Steak N Shake in all honesty.

Very cool!  I love that place!  Don't the servers sing and dance too?  We've been to 2 or 3 of them.  I really liked it!  And they make the little smiley face with the ketchup?  :D

I wasn't expecting fine dining, but it was equivilent (quality wise) to Red Robin or Applebees I think.

It's going in the old carpet center in Hampton Plaza on Telegraph.  Next to The pella store and Yaeger shoes.  It's been in the works for a long time.  Hopefully they continue to make progress and get it open soon!
