Johnny Rockets Unlimited Fries!

My son wants fries and coke!

My sister suggests that we dine at Johnny Rockets located at Eastwood Mall. It's an American hamburger joint that serves unlimited fries!

Entering Johnny Rockets is like traveling back in time. It's clean-white ambiance brings nostalgia of the classic American diner. The place has a functional jukebox that plays cool oldies but goodies hits from the 50's, 60's and 70's. We're seated at one of those tables with "mini jukeboxes," where you just need a one-peso coin to play a song.

They gave my son an activity sheet, a balloon and a cap while waiting for our food.

Since its our first time to try this burger chain, mama and I ordered The Original Hamburger (Php 285). It's a burger with fresh lettuce, ripe tomato, chopped onions, pickle, relish, mustard and mayonnaise. They will ask you how you want your patty cooked - I want mine well done, while mama want her burger patty medium rare.

I'm amazed at the huge serving. The burger is fresh off the grill. It is juicy and tender, and the taste was full. It comes with a generous serving of high-grade medium-cut fries, or if you prefer, you can choose the salad. We love the salad too, as the lettuce is crisp enough.

Johnny Rockets serves ketchup "with a smile". My son gives this happy Smiley Ketchup a thumbs up!

My sister ordered a Hot Dog. It's an all-beef hot dog, served with mustard, chopped onions, relish and ketchup. Their unlimited fries is a loader's dream come true! The fries are crisp, not oily and served hot even if you asked for a refill.

From time to time, the entire staff - from the waiters to the managers, treat their customers with dance numbers from the 60's and 70's.

It had been a great food experience, except that it took us 2 request before we receive our soda and fries refill (because of 1 unattentive server). Service takes some time and needs to be improved.

Must-Try: Philly Cheese Steak, milkshake, Onion Rings, Route 66

Johnny Rockets is a place where the good times roll, with "rocketful" of foods that makes you say 'Johnny Be Good!'

This is definitely a must-try for us when we are in Manila. :) Thanks for sharing this wonderful experience in Johnny Rockets.

Thanks for sharing this! My kids are crazy about French fries and would probably like this place. My only problem is, Eastwood's too far from our home. I hope Johnny Rockets would soon have a branch in the South area :)
