When Ronn Teitelbaum opened the first Johnny Rockets location in 1986, his goal was to create a restaurant where people could escape the blues of modern life and experience a taste of time-honored Americana. The name itself is a nod to this ideal—it combines the star of a classic American fable, Johnny Appleseed, and a classic car, Oldsmobile’s beefy Rocket 88. The chain now makes itself at home in America's cultural landmarks, including Yankee Stadium and the Flamingo Hotel.
During meals at the famous burger joints, you’ll see signs of simpler times, starting with the cooks and servers—dressed head to toe in white, including crisp paper hats, they look like they’ve stepped straight out of Norman Rockwell's hunger daymares ready to sling shakes and cook up some patty melts. Behind a stainless-steel bar lined with red-leather stools, they tend to their traditional diner food, including third-pound burgers and toasty melts with sides such as chili-cheese fries and onion rings. Riding sidecar to each meal is a collection of hand-dipped and hand-spun floats, shakes, and malts topped with whipped cream.
The waitress was very attentive and nice.Elizabeth W., Yelp, 10/29/12
