A classic all American dining experience serving burgers, fries and rich milkshakes.
Service: The service is quite prompt and our servers were attentive to our needs.
Ambiance: I have been to the JR in mall of the emirates branch and to be honest, I prefer this branch any day. It is spacious, clean and plenty of place to sit and enjoy some yummy burgers and milkshakes.
Price: We used VoucherSkout and thus were able to get 50% off on the entire meal but I feel that the menu is quite okay in the terms of pricing – would not say it’s extremely pocket friendly though.
What we had;
Buffalo Chicken Burger [30AED]: I ordered for this and I could not be happier with my choice. The burger was juicy and tangy. The chicken felt fresh and was crunchy just as I had wanted. The buffalo sauce flavour along with the added jalapeños were just mind blowing. This burger was quite big and filled me up by the half of it. I totally recommend going for this if you eat only chicken.
Teriyaki Chicken Burger [30AED]: My friend was quite unimpressed by this. She did not like the taste of it. I had a bite and I felt something off; the flavours were not present and it just tasted quite bland. Also, I could not really get the garlic flavour at all.
Cheese Fries [23AED]: The fries were quite yummy. I do not normally like cheese but this was quite good. The hot melted cheese on top of those crunchy, hot fries looked and tasted like anything but plastic – like Cheese fries normally do.
Route 66 [32AED – Small]: I do not eat beef so I did not get to taste this bad boy but my friend loved her burger. She was quite disappointed in ordering for the small variant. This burger comprises of swiss cheese, grilled mushrooms, mayo and caramalized onions.
Strawberry Oreo Crumble [19AED – Regular]: I ordered for this and was in absolute love. I wish I had gotten it up sized. It was delicious! One of the best milkshakes I’ve had for this price. It was not too thick and not too runny. The strawberry syrup and oreo crumble went too well. Also, I loved the fact that it was not too sweet and tasted so well along with my burger.
Oreo Cookie Cookies and Cream [19AED – Regular]: This was very similar in taste and description just as the Strawberry oreo crumble just that it did not have the strawberry syrup. I honestly loved the strawberry one a tad bit more.
Hershey’s Chocolate [17AED – Regular]: This was my least favourite in the drinks section. I am kind of over the whole Hershey’s chocolate syrup phase. It tastes funny and does not taste half as good as the others unfortunately.
Final thoughts: I am surprised as to why Johnny Rockets is rated relatively low on Zomato. I personally loved my lunch here and can definitely see myself coming here again and again.
