On Monday night we went on down to the new Johnny Rockets for dinner. The place was really crowded, and we were lucky to be able to find a seat without having to wait very long. Apparently a lot of other people were excited about the opening!
The food was good, but because it was still opening weekend there were a few bugs and hiccups. The kitchen was slow getting food out, our waitress seemed to be a little overextended, and at one point she told us another server had taken our food and given it to another table! So we had to wait extra long for our burgers to come out, and when they finally did the kids were getting restless. And our kids, when they’re restless, let the whole world know and don’t stop there. So we didn’t really get to savor our food, we were just hurrying to get out before the time bomb that is our children went off.
But very little of that is the fault of Johnny Rockets, and a few problems are to be expected on opening weekend. The place looks great, with fresh paint and shiny chrome everywhere. And as I was wolfing down my burger I was able to tell how good it tasted. So we’re definitely going to go back, just when things are a little less crazy.
Here are some photos from our visit.
