The Original Burger from Johnny Rockets

Original Burger, Rocket Wings, and Shake

I haven't been to a Johnny Rockets in ages...probably more than a decade, in fact. But we came here today for a milkshake, all while picking up one of their Original burgers in the process. It was a bit of a letdown. The patty was too lean and overseasoned, making it totally pale in comparison to Jeffrey's in San Mateo or even In-N-Out.

Those wings were disappointingly breaded too, even though the black pepper that they used in the rather spicy Hot Rocket Fuel sauce was interesting. I wonder if it will be another decade before I come back here (maybe for a root beer float?). Hopefully the tableside jukebox here won't eat my nickel again like it did today.
