Blast off to Johnny Rockets for burgers and shakes

October 11, 2016


Ever wanted to find an escape from life’s complications, so that you can enjoy the more simple goodness of life?


If so come on down to Johnny Rockets.


That was the general concept of Ronn Teitelbaum, when he established the first location back in 1986 in California.


Almost 30 years later, there are 350 locations in 26 countries worldwide.


Now El Paso is lucky to have two locations in the Sun City.

The first location on Mesa and its second in Cielo Vista Mall.


Whether you’re on the east or west side of town, they’re in arms length for you.

As you enter a Johnny Rockets you get the feeling of a modern 50s style diner.


With the classic goodness of burgers, fries, and shakes, it takes you back into time with a modern twist.


Not only do they serve the classics but there’s also comfort food such as chili, chicken sandwiches and tenders, and if you want a lighter taste they have salads as well.

Not only delicious food but also great customer service.


“It is the quality and the friendly service that we provide at all Johnny Rockets that makes us just a tad different than the rest” said Edgar Pardo, General Manager, Certified Trainer and Opening Unit Coordinator.


That is completely true, for when I went to their grand opening weekend, it’s exactly what I witnessed. 

I ordered an original burger with fries and a chocolate shake.


When the waiter brought me my food I was expecting a box on a tray well I was mistaken, it was on a paper tray and its presentation took it from being fast food to gourmet food.


It may be small inside but if you look a little farther into the restaurant you will notice a back patio, giving you the option of eating indoors or under the stars. 

With its tasty food and service it was the first restaurant that I saw that had over 5 managers on duty, each one helping out, and attending to their customers.


You don’t see that every day, most places either have one or two managers on duty but not over 5.


That’s what I think made the place more friendly and considerate.


As a result to this service I would definitely recommend Johnny Rockets; it is a place for families’ friends and would make a great place for a first date, a milkshake with two straws under the stars please.

The idea of having more Johnny Rockets in El Paso would be quite exquisite and that may just happen, according to Jose Luis Fernandez, General Manager, in regards to the mall location, “I believe that this location will go very far and that we will see more of Johnny Rockets in El Paso.”


So if you are looking for a break from your complicated day, blast off to infinity and beyond at Johnny Rockets.
