The food was surprising good here, and the bill didn't cost as much as I thought it would. The service was great. We were a small group of 6 (with 2 children) and we were all happy with the meal.

As an employee in Destiny USA, who only gets 30 min for lunch, I don't have time to deal with the crowds at the food court. I can call my order in and it's ready FAST! I've never had a bad experience there. BTW I was sad to see the one in Eastview Mall close. Try the route 66 Burger!

We came here for supper after a movie. I could deal with the wait in line since it was as Saturday around supper. However once we were seated--directly under a very loud speaker--it was no less than 10 minutes before ANYONE came to us. It's no longer what I'd call reasonably priced--fries now cost extra and even though they are... More

I had the original burger and my wife had the veggie burger. Mine was good but not as good has I have had before, seemed like a different beef. My wife had the veggie burger and they put mustard on it which she said ruined it. The chocolate milkshake was great. The service was good and we had a real... More

I always enjoy the food from Johnny Rockets. I was disappointed it moved and does not have the same atmosphere as in its old spot(50's looking place).

Yogi Berra said it best: If it ain't broke, don't fix it. This about sums it up in the revamped Johnny Rockets at the Destiny Mall. It has lost it's homage to the burger joints of the 50's in it's new location. Now it has the industrial/urban rebirth kinda look. Not inventive, and the size of the burgers have shrunk... More

Husband and I went to dinner there just this past Saturday. Staff kept running into me without saying sorry even after me saying something to several people even management. I ended up moving myself. The waitress explained menu throughly and our order came exactly like we ordered it. The food it's self was alright. To my it's more like a... More

Probably the cheapest sit down restaurant in the mall. It's a standard Johnny Rockets so a chain American diner. The staff is very friendly and quick. The open kitchen is nice. It allows you to see the cooks as they work and lets you know that everything is clean. Pro tip: The meals don't come with fries as listed on... More

There is a lot of hype for this restaurant, The picture of the burger on the sign is deceiving.My real burger was pretty thin and small in my opinion, and they don't ask how you want it cooked , you get what you get I guess and mine was overcooked. and dry. The good part , the loaded fries were... More
