The launch event had ushers dressed as the lively and super energetic Elvis Presley while the waiters served the three course meal of shakes, burgers, fries and desserts. The shakes were a definite try, being served in Hershey’s chocolate and a basic vanilla flavour, for those who like to stay subtle. The waiters danced around, sticking true to the brand's tagline of All That Jazz, and had fun while serving the houseful restaurant. The prices are towards the steep side, but the restaurant manager clarified the notion that Johnny Rockets is not a regular fast food chain, it is a complete restaurant experience and hence the premium rates. The burger was juicy with a soft bun and a thick tender patty. There are some things in life you just cannot resist…and a burger at Johnny Rockets will tops that list!
