It was like 8 months ago when we tried Johnny Rockets here in Dubai Marina because we tried to stay away on this place.. The First time we came here we ordered some chili cheese fries because they said it was new on their Menu and it was really good, I mean average for this kind of food here in Dubai. We ordered also the Trio Burger with different kinds of flavors for each burger and I enjoyed it though they put too much mayo...which made it a little bit slappy. The drinks were good because you can ask them for free refill which is the only thing we liked for our first visit.

Second time around at Johnny Rockets, my husband said lets try it again and maybe we can try new things since the place was ok...and that was the big mistake that we did. So because this is our second time, we ordered this Philly cheese steak and it was crap (the beef was not properly cut and the taste was terrible). We called the manager to ask why this was like this because we cannot eat that thing at all. So the manager said that they are going to give us a new one. It took them like 20 minutes to change that thing and after waiting..ching!Ching!.. Nothing changed. Still the same story but we didn't say anything and just asked them to wrap it for take out. We ordered again some chili cheese fries and it was like 3 months ago since our first visit but still.. on their menu (New), but as always.. it is good! so its ok. Next one is the BBQ Chicken Bacon Melt...OMG! I almost drowned with their BBQ sauce on this sandwich.. and I couldn't even taste the other ingredients at all.... after this upsetting meal... we decided not to come back anymore..

Until last week.... 8 months ago since our last try, we said, "lets try it again and just order the things that we liked. So we only ordered that Trio burger and the chili fries. I think this was a good snack. First time that we enjoyed their food.

I ordered the original burger and I repeated that I want it medium done. Eventually I got a medium rare, cold, messy burger. Never gonna order again.

Tried out these mini-burgers, aptly called "The Trio". Made up of three burgers, slightly different from each other, but all very delicious. Fries are really good here, almost always hot and crispy. Also love the free refills on soft drinks...

I have stayed away from JR's for a time. I was here last weekend, and had low expectations. However, to my surprise, the food was really good. They have changed the menu a bit. They have added sweet potato fries, a cheese-steak, and a few other items. I had the sweet potato fries, and they were dyn-o-mite! The burger was very solid as well. What kept this from a 5 star experience was the staff. The waitress was great taking the order, but we never saw her again. They messed up my milkshake a few times, and the fries came out way before the burgers. I saw them do that, so that might be there thing, but it sure ain't mine

Sorry, I dont know why people rave abotu this place.. had the grilled chicken, had the swiss mushroom.. its like eating rubber. Service is like yes-madam, no-madam.. and then they forget about you. Madam is here, dammit! The food tastes like it is mass produced, and the presentation leaves a lot to be desired. Their fries, No. I think its cute they make smiley ketchups for the kids, but I wish they put the same effort in their burgers. I wouldnt come here again.

Ended up coming here by mistake. Starbucks was closed so we stopped for a milkshake. We sat outside, and we caught a driver on his way to make a delivery and saw that i was looking for a waiter. He tried to get a waiters attention for me, and when he saw i was looking for a menu, he stopped turned back around and got them for me. Such a small show of initiative, but huge in satisfaction!!! I love it....a Dubai Normal would of been to just say "not my job " and go about his day. Good on ya Johnny Rockets..I will definetly keep this place in mind next time im in for a burger and a good milkshake. I love your style of service. Its REFRESHING. :)

Craving a burger yesterday, so ordered delivery from JR's. It arrived in decent time but when I opened the box, I found that it was not at all what I ordered. Asked for a classic Rocket Single, got a burger with facon and onion rings. Called them back to tell them about the mistake, and she asked, 'Do you want to replace it?' Seriously? Why do you think I called? Anyway, they brought the right one pretty quickly. Curiously, they asked for the wrong burger back, which I had taken a bite out of.

Really disappointing that Johnny Rockets in the UAE does not cater for vegetarians like in the States. That is all i have to say. DISAPPOINTING!
