“A great American diner experience in Dubai”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

Aesthetically, Johnny Rockets is a home from home to those who love a 'typical' American diner/ Food is good, and freshly prepared to your taste - we always have a fussy one in our party, but they were great to help us around the menu to get what we wanted. Kitchen looked very clean, and it was nice to see exactly what was being prepared right in front of us. Overall, it's one to look out for in Dubai (although the location isn't ideal).

“Best burgers around”
Reviewed 3 January 2013

The burgers here are absolutely delightful and one of the best ones around. The staff are pleasant and service is prompt. It costs double the average fast food fix around here but the burgers are twice as good as the average fast food burger. The double patty burgers here are a must try but the milkshake was a little too watery for my liking.

“Hopeless service at Dubai Marina Johnny Rockets”
Reviewed 31 December 2012

We had 5 children and 4 adults when we sat down to a late lunch around 2:30. While they took our order quite promptly, they came overt five minutes later to tell us that it would take around 30 minutes for our meal to arrive. We accepted that. After 30 minutes our French fries and onion rings arrived. They were tepid we ate them anyway while waiting for our burgers. After another 15 minutes and reminders from me some of the burgers arrived. After another 10 minutes some drinks arrived. Finally after a little irate commentary we got our milk shakes a few minutes before our bill. The last burger for our 10 year old never arrived, nor did any cutlery to eat with ( we did ask) the final annoyance? - they tried to bill us for the missing burger and tell us it was our fault! Totally shambolic service

“very good food”
Reviewed 24 December 2012

very good food but expensive for a fast food rest. The service is very nice.
They also do home delivery where you can enjoy your meal at home.
