I am American and they had proper friendly American customer service! It felt just like a family owned and operated American restaurant, where the people who work there care about the service, food, and atmosphere they provide. The Burgers are delicious and a fantastic value...for it's size, the milkshakes are actually American style milkshakes, and the curly fries are divine! We didn't notice the cash only signs, which was our fault because they are in a few places before you get to ordering, but they were very gracious and helpful in telling us where the cash points were and didn't show any annoyance with us not being prepared with cash. That goes a long way in my book! My wife and I had a wonderful experience and highly recommend Rockin Diner!More

Food is good quality for a fast food diner and at a great price. Owner was friendly and advised on the meal deal saving me money and getting more food. Food was filling tasty hot and served in good time. If i lived here i...would probably be in a lot more.More

Called in for lunch. Ordered for 4 of us. Reasonable prices. Staff friendly. Food arrived quickly and far nicer than burgers I've had in past at other shops else where. Milk shakes to die for. Will defiantly in nipping in next time I'm in Leicester..if...only we had one in Lincoln .More

Fab little gem 2 mins drive/8 mins walk away from Leicester city centre. Tiny little American 1950's style diner- red leather booths, chrome bar stools, hub caps, US number plates and guitars on the walls- and of course, a 1950's jukebox. Place is clean and...welcoming. Typical (lengthy!) menu of gourmet Burgers, fries, nachos, buffalo wings, burritos etc etc, with sodas and milkshakes at really cheap prices. Big portions, delicious food. Fun meal out for under the price of a McD drive through. Can't beat it.More

Popped in late one night. The staff were very friendly. Menu is very large. There is no table service, so you order, pay and then your food is delivered to your table. My burger and fries were brilliant, very tasty and piping hot. The wife's...chicken burger she says was very good, large and filling. We were there about 22:50, the place closes at 23:00 but they did not rush us to close up which was nice. Both staff asked if the food was good, we could not have been happier. A bit pricey for a burger bar.More

There's plenty of stuff to like about this place. The decor fits the bill, great music from the 50's, top marks for this. The menu fits the 50's diner theme too. But all is not well... The burger tasted ok, however with the build up...you half expect a decent meaty hand made burger. Certainly for the price you might expect it. However it was a fairly standard machined patty that you can get anywhere. So overall this wasn't pulling up any trees. Onto the philly steak sub, this was more pulled beef/shawarma than beef steak. The filling fell out of the bottom. Again the taste was ok but nothing amazing. There was no tasty cheese with it, just American burger cheese and cheese sauce. The overall rating lies somewhere between a 3 and a 4, but closer to a 3. So onto the title of this review. I have a suspicion about many of the reviews attributed to this establishment and I hope I am wrong. It appears as being in the top 20 places regularly in Leicester. I have been to many established places in Leicester that I would rate higher. There are many reviews spanning several months with reviewers who have only done 1 review and given a 5 rating. I would still encourage you to try this place, but I would be careful not to read to much into the overall rating this place has.More

The service was good. The food tasted good - and had an "American" flavour to it. The design of the diner also recalled the States of an earlier time.
