The food was okay . We really got tired of standing in line (as did others ), while the workers stood around talking and ignoring the customers . We would have walked next door to Earl of Sandwich if we hadn't ate there earlier in the day...they were kicking it out .

I was looking for breakfast late morning and Johnny Rockets has several breakfast items they prepare 24 hours a day. Not on the menu, but they fixed a bacon and egg on a potato bun for me. Even offered to prepare an omlet for me. That has to be great service, especially for a fastfood place.

We had tried to wait on a table at Brio but after 2 hours of waiting we were starving and came to JR. we both got a burger which was great and shared an order of the sweet potato fries. I liked that everything was cooked fresh as you ordered and was hot.

There's a lot to love at thr restaurant but my favorite is the chicken tenders. I would choose them over any other including Zaxby's. I have them when I get there and get some when I leave.

Food is in trays that weren't warm enough. So slow and unorganized. Frys get cold before burgers are put together. Just no flavor.

have eaten here several times -- great burgers, hot, cooked perfectly; not much of a wait. ordered mushroom swiss burger and there were plenty of mushrooms -- and a lot of onions I didn't realize would be on there, but they added great flavor.

I only had a milkshake but it was so refreshing and good - nice break after being in the casino for so long.

We frequent Johnny Rockets while at Harrah's. It is a great place to get a late light meal or lunch. This trip we did lunch! The sandwiches are great and the staff too!

We were sadly mistaken in that we thought this would be of the same quality as the Johnny Rockets in Gatlinburg. Wrong!!! Don't be fooled! If you want cold burgers and fries then be my guest. Seriously, DO NOT waste your money here! This is cafeteria food at the very least. We were very disappointed. By the time you order,... More
