Johnny Rockets is one of those chains that seem to be everywhere. I had not really noticed that there’s one located in pretty much every mall until recently. A few weeks ago when I was plotting out places I would be eating at that month, I had decided on Johnny Rockets but then something changed that. I made plans with my parents to go on a cruise with my family.
On certain Royal Caribbean ships (we went on the Independence Of The Seas) there are Johnny Rockets At Sea. The best part is it’s only $3.95 per person unlimited per meal. Yes, I couldn’t believe it either (but maybe you knew this, otherwise just play along, I’m a simple man with simple pleasures). The Menu on the ship is limited but I was not about to complain.
So they served us a welcome order Fries with Ranch and plate with Ketchup made by someone with too much time on their hands. It wasn’t too bad considering we didn’t even ask for it. I order the Rocket Double and a Chili Cheese Dog. The Rocket Double has that diner Burger flavor which I happen to love in spurts. It’s 2 patties with 2 slices of Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato, Onions and Special Sauce. The Cheese had melted ever so slightly onto the grill giving the edges a little crispiness.
Their Chili Cheese Dog is a Nathan’s dog with raw Onions, their “all Meat Chili” and topped with grated Cheddar Cheese. Hey, this thing was good. What else can I really say…..the perfect lazy afternoon vacation food. Even though it’s not on the Johnny Rockets At Sea Menu, their Chili Size (served open face, a Patty covered in Chili, chopped Onions, and grated Cheddar Cheese) is my favorite but that’s a stomach ache for another day.
