I’m a huge fan of the 1950’s-1960’s era. The music, the clothing, the innocence was a big draw for me. A big representation of this era are the diners, music and the classic cars so it was a great opportunity for me to attend a Johnny Rockets‘ bloggers lunch courtesy of Mommy Bloggers Philippines.
Johnny Rockets is an international food chain having first opened in Los Angeles on Melrose Ave in 1986. Their menu boasts of all our favorites such as Sandwiches, Chicken Tenders, Chicken Wings, Sliders, Hotdogs, Cheesedogs and of course Hamburgers. They also offer Onion Rings, Chili Fries and salad. Your meal wouldn’t be complete without dessert and they have their famous shakes and floats for that. They also have apple pie, cookies, sundaes and a Cinnamon Pizza!
To cater to our local taste their menu offers up All Time Favorites with Rice: Spam, Hamburger Steak and Corned Beef. They also offer Kiddie Meals in mini versions.
The vibe in their diner exudes the 50’s-60’s feel from the posters to the jukebox. I always wanted to have one of those and I hope to be able to get one someday. For the meantime, I took a good look at the jukebox they had at their Eastwood branch. Seeing the song playlist I felt that old thrill when I used to listen to those classics.
Johnny Rockets is also known for being the “Home of the Dancing Servers”. I got to witness just that while waiting for the afternoon of fun to start. Working at Johnny Rockets you’ll need to maintain a high level of energy with all the dancing they do. They dance every 30 minutes and give a pretty good show!
We were treated to their famous Original Hamburger which I must say is pretty huge. The Original has all the staples of an American burger- fresh lettuce, ripe tomato, chopped onions, relish pickle, mustard and mayonnaise all for the price of Php280.00. You can have cheese with that by just adding Php30.00. It’s served with a side of American fries.
We were in for more deliciousness with their Summer Shakes (Php345). I got Halo Halo just right for this extreme summer heat! They also offer Hawaiian Breeze and Guyabano. It was interesting to know that aside from the shake in the usual glass that they serve, they also serve the excess shake in a separate glass. In most places you won’t get that kind of value for money.
As we enjoyed our food we were entertained with more dancing and songs like Rockin’ Robin and Rock Around the Clock.
They have a Rocketeers Summer Camp for kids ages 6 to 12. Kids will learn how to make these American favorites and dance! It’ll be a unique workshop and your child will definitely leave with an appreciation for customer service and American food and music.
Another excellent piece of news is that Johnny Rockets is coming to the Fairview area. Soon they will open at Fairview Terraces!
So if you’re looking for a night of American food and music drop by a Johnny Rockets near you!
