Johnny Rockets

Richard's Take:

My Burger: The bacon cheddar double: two patties, bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion & special sauce.

The Side: regular fries. Decent, nothing to write home about, but they are all-you-can eat.

Verdict: We were a little time-pressed on this patrol, so we walked over to Johnny Rockets. I braced myself as we went in and sat at the counter... especially when I asked for medium-rare, and got back, "We don't do that." The fact that they are more concerned about a lawsuit, than serving a good burger says something about the quality of beef.

Still the waitress plead my case, and my burger was cooked medium-rare. This burger was significantly smaller than the other burgers we've patrolled. The patty was pretty small and thin. I think I equated it to a McDonald's Quarter Pounder (but not as bad). The bacon, however, was surprisingly good - kudos to their buyer! It was so good, that I would get a BLT should I go again. Overall, it was a good burger, but nothing to get excited about.
