Johnny Rockets The Original Hamburger

Ambience: chromed 50s style diner vibe but with an obvious chain restaurant feel ***The one I went to at Universal Citywalk was more of a sports bar but I know most aren’t like that.

Ordering procedure: wait service (table or counter seating)

Burger presentation: all put together on a platter with a toothpick down the center

The Original: lettuce, tomato, onion, relish, pickle, mustard, mayo

Cheese situation: comes included on only some options

Fries: skin-on, regular style

Meal deal: burger, fries, and drink must be bought separately

Meal price: $15-20

Other: cylinder of drink straws on table, separate ketchup dish comes with fries

First location: Los Angeles, California (a national chain, mostly tourist-heavy cities)

Review: Given the rather forced ambience, it was actually pretty decent with a good toppings combination. You get a decent amount of food for the price but only stop by if it’s on your way to somewhere.

I spun the plate until I got this “photo op” angle
It’s a pricier place but that is a mess of fries
