Johnny Rockets Celebrates Summer With Delicious New Menu Items

Its warmer and the days are longer. Some call it “summer fever,” but at Johnny Rockets the buzz in the air is all about new menu changes at its dine-in restaurants across the country available now.

Known for its world-famous, fresh handcrafted burgers, Johnny Rockets is elevating its core offering by moving to the “best of the best” – juicy, tender Certified Angus Beef® fresh, never frozen cooked-to-order patties, made with superior cuts of choice and prime beef, meeting stringent quality standards. Johnny Rockets pairs its new premium flavor-packed patty with a fresh toasted brioche bun and offers guests a range of savory toppings, from thick-cut Applewood smoked bacon strips to Smokin’ Chipotle sauce. Diners can now also choose a savory Gardein™ Black Bean Burger or a Boca® Burger (at select locations), served with fresh tomato and crisp leaf lettuce, as a tasty alternative protein, and have the option to substitute the brioche with an Udi’s® Gluten-Free bun.

Sausage lovers will rejoice with the addition of Nathan’s® Famous all-beef hot dogs, featuring a choice of savory toppings from relish and chopped onion to all-meat chili and Wisconsin cheddar cheese. Rounding out changes to the new menu is the kids’ mini-burger now made with a Kings Hawaiian® roll, and a tasty new shareable starter – Loaded Street Tots®. Also known for its hand-spun shakes and floats, Johnny Rockets will continue to offer Original and Deluxe flavors, from Oreo® Cookies & Cream to Chocolate Peanut Butter, each made with the finest USDA certified premium vanilla ice cream, whole milk, and real whipped cream. Johnny Rockets’ new menus now include nutritional and calorie count information as mandated by government regulations.

“We are proud to announce these exciting innovations to the Johnny Rockets menu,” said James Walker, President of Operations and Development of Johnny Rockets. “These changes emphasize our commitment to the quality premium burgers that the Johnny Rockets brand is known for, and strives to meet the evolving tastes of our loyal customers with an expanded range of flavorful, healthful menu choices.  We’re confident that partnerships with leading specialty food brands, from Nathans Hot Dogs and King’s Hawaiian Bread to Gardein, will ensure our restaurants have something for everyone in the family to enjoy. We’re looking to generate excitement and anticipation with fans of the Johnny Rockets experience as we roll out these menu updates.”
