    We used to love Johnny Rockets, the first one we went to was in San Francisco and we were both hooked. There was lots on the menu to choose from, it was well cooked and not greasy, the atmosphere was excellent, there wasn't anything we cold complain about, well other than the size of the portions :lol:

    We made a beeline to the one at the Mall at Millenia and boy were we disappointed :sigh: it's in the food court and so we felt rushed, the food was greasy and we had to ask for refills, the service was bad and unusual for us, we didn't leave a tip. We were really disappointed with the one at Millenia.

    If you can find a nice one it's a great place to go, but I don't know if there are any others in the area :sorry:

    It's pretty good. It's reminiscent of a 1950's malt shoppe. We took my dad last month to celebrate his 70th birthday.

    I had a burger and onion rings. All very good

    The only one I've ever been to was at Fed Ex Field. I was less than impressed

    We have them around our area and we love them :yes:

    I guess there is always a difference between states, but it might be worth a shot?

    Whenwe went to the one in Orlando we were not impressed. Don't go for the food, just go for the theming and the little juke boxes on your table :) The milkshakes were nice.

    We have one here in our mall - I've never been as it's right in the middle of the food court and I feel like I'd lose out on a lot of the "experience" because of the location. I have been to one - years ago. I remember it being a bit like "Ellen's Stardust Diner" in NYC - great for the atmosphere but run-of-the-mill as far as food quality.

    Thank you all.

    Shame because the pictures on the menu look so appealing. I'm remembering a Michael Douglas film now where the burger didn't look like the picture and he got..umm...cranky. :eek:

    The theming is really good, if you can find one other than at Millenia, then give it a go, there is a lot of choice and the milkshakes are delicious, even Millenia didn't mess them up.

    Have you ever been to Firehouse Subs, they are really nice :yes:

    We found them by accident and now we go there every trip at least once, their choice is huge as well.

    I have only had the hook and ladder sandwich. So good. They also have a cherry limeaid and fresh lines.

    I was only telling Keith about Five Guys the other day :lol:

    Firehouse Subs are in the Food Court at the Mall of Millenia, that's where we have tried them, they are also at 1305 W. Vine St. Kissimmee, FL 34741 and also at Dr Phillips at 7541 West Sand Lake Rd, Ste A, Orlando, FL 32819. You can have a look at their menu here
    My favourite is the Steak and Cheese :D
