Restaurant Review: I’v Found My Johnny


And his last name is Rockets. Johnny Rockets located at Wuse 2, Abuja makes the meanest hamburgers. My friends first sampled their burgers and they had enough testimonies. So I decided to sample it for myself…my initiation burger was “The Route 66” Hamburger. Details: This burger is named after the iconic, carefree, American Highway. It contains swiss cheese, grilled mushrooms, grilled onions & mayonnaise….yummy!

Ever since I have graduated to other meals on their menu, like the Smoked Bacon Burger, Chicken Club Sandwich, Chilli Cheese fries etc…

Bacon Cheddar Single



The restaurant is divided into two sections..downstairs is more family oriented..longer and wider seats with bright decor, once in a while the staff entertains customers with a dance routine, dancing to an oldies, the “Go Johnny Go” song by Chuck Berry…that gets the kids excited. Upstairs is more for the grown ups. The bar is located here. The decor is darker with high tables and chairs for two or more…perfect for after work drinks.

My Verdict
The burgers sold here are the best in Abuja, their beef patty are spiced really good, tasty, juicy and cooked well-done...they don't give you the option of having it cooked rare or med-rare, I'm guessing its because they don't get asked by customers to do so. Well, I'm not complaining because I always ask for a well-done beef patty anyway...their hamburger price range is between N2,100.00 to N3,600.00. Click here to see their menu. They make awesome shakes, I wasn't sure about their shakes until I had their Chocolate Peanut Butter shake recently and I was almost having an Oliver Twist moment. It tasted like blended Snickers. Their bartender make delicious cocktails too. I think my favorite is their Strawberry Daiquiri. (Watch the funny video at the end)
