Review of Johnny Rockets at The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass

Johnny Rockets is open at The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass! The new restaurant opened along side new stores H&M, Abercrombie, Campus Wearhouse, and Maurice's. It's all part of their Phase 2 project- which just had its ribbon cutting. My family was so excited about the opening that we went soon after they opened their doors for the first time! 

The restaurant is easily visible from I-64. It's attached to the mall itself, but stands out because it looks like a diner straight out of the 50's. That diner look and feel continues inside as well. My oldest wanted to sit at the counter, but we opted for a booth in the back. Johnny Rockets is known for shakes, but my husband and I just got water to drink (we do that at most restaurants to keep the price down). My daughters shared a strawberry shake and loved it! The restaurant is also known for their burgers. I ordered the Route 66 burger (Swiss cheese, onions, and mushrooms) and it was really good! My husband orders the Smokehouse Burger (cheese, bacon, onion rings, bbq sauce) and thought it was delicious! We shared bottomless fries, but next time are going to share the bottomless 1/2 fries & 1/2 onion ring shareable. My daughters shared a kids meal that came with 2 burgers and fries. They must have enjoyed their food because they ate most of it. They really liked when the waitress came over and gave them a small dipping bowl for their ketchup and put a smiley face in it. Check out everything else they have to offer here.

The food was good, but our favorite thing about our Johnny Rockets lunch was watching the staff dance to music. My four year old loved the synchronized dances and asked the waitress if they would dance again- and they did. The waitress asked if the girls wanted to join them, but they opted to dance in the booth instead. It made for a fun dining experience! The waitress said they are supposed to dance every half hour, but sometimes may forget or get too busy so just ask and they will try their best to oblige. 

I am so glad Johnny Rockets came to Shelby County! This is currently the only Johnny Rockets in Kentucky! The food was yummy, the staff was friendly, and the atmosphere was fun! We will be back!
