Love the hamburger, shakes/malts and the diner ambience. Maybe a little bit on the spendy side but food is well worth it.

This place serves customer-tailored hamburgers and does this quite well. The ingredients were all fresh and of good quality. It is similar in nature to Five Guys, but it has a lot more variety to offer. Two of us ate hamburgers only and a drink. The bill came to more that twenty dollars. That is more than 2x the cost...

We've been here sooo many times. Food always excellent and it comes out so fast. The owner of this Johnny Rockets amazingly remembers us - we've been coming once a year for the past 20 years or so, but I still find it amazing that he remembers us.

We visited Johnny Rocket's Manhattan Beach on Sat. July 11th, 2015 with my uncle and brother. I had a free entree coupon from the local mailer, so we used it on this visit. Our server "Tony" was very nice and promptly served us. I had the BBQ Chicken with Bacon Melt, it was tasty but the bacon was not fully... More

When one is one of 3 tables and 3 staff are working, perhaps cleaning a counter behind the grill is not as important as taking one's order and cooking the food. I got there at 11:45 - it took until 12:15 for my food to come. I wrote the company - got no response. Johnny Rockets used to be the... More

We eat outside for lunch, had burgers. Nothing special about the burgers. Most tables were full and staff seemed short handed for a while. We had to take the bill inside to get it processed. Just a busy Sat afternoon rush.

Real down and dirty burgers, sandwiches and the like. Great for lunch and kids. Sit outside on the little patio!

We went to Johnny Rockets in Manhattan Beach for a business lunch. It was an authentic, well maintained restaurant from my youth. The food was very good and the old music from the 50's was a perfect fit for the foods that I grew up on. When I get back this way, I will definitely stop in again.
