If it's like regular Johnny Rockets outside of amusement parks, then yes the food is very good. The menu is very small (only 4 types of burgers), but their "special red sauce" is good... kinda like cocktail sauce. Grilled cheese is really good, with sourdough bread. Order a shake and you get a cupful plus the cup they mixed it in (almost another full cup).

Also, at the other restaurants, they bring your fries first so they're nice and hot, they give you a big ol' tray for ketchup and they draw a smily face with ketchup for you...

The regular restaurants' food is okay. It's kind of weird being at a formal sit down place for burgers. In my opinion, In-N-Out is better though.

Johnny Rockets at Cedar Point is a full-blown Johnny Rockets franchise...the differences being that (a) it serves Pepsi because it's at Cedar Point, (b) it's the largest restaurant in the chain, and (c) drinks are more expensive than at the other franchise restaurants so as to be in line with the other park joints.

Jeez, you guys must have bad JRs around where you live. I've been to that place about a dozen times, 3 different locations, and it's always been excellent. Anyplace where you can get vanilla Coke is good in my book!

Johnny Rockets is a lot of fun if you want it to be. I was out in Hollywood California in January, and we constantly went to Johnny Rockets so we could be entertained. They play music from the 50's-70's and they encouraged us to dance with them. The food is good, and I really do enjoy the atmosphere. I like Johnny Rockets A LOT more than I like In and Out. Let me tell you, that is what In and Out was...IN AND OUT. I have been to many other Johnny Rockets and had the exact same feeling. I DOUBT Ceder Point's would be any different. Go if you wanna have fun!

I've been to the one in Strongsville (Ohio) and the one at Cedar Point, and the quality of the food wasn't as good for some reason at CP. I assume it all comes from the same place, so I found that to be kind of odd.

I'm not a big fan of in-park franchises, and this one in particular is odd because they already have a "diner" type of place at Coasters. Six Flags parks have really killed it. If I really want franchise food I can get that outside of the park.

most of the gp wants to know what they're getting, theyd rather eat at a restaraunt they know of and like than rather try a place they dont know about. At SFWoA ever notice how pizza hut is always significantly more crowded than Gotham Pizza?

I like the *idea* of in-park franchises, because, to me, park food really isn't good at all, especially hamburgers. However, for some reason, food at in-park franchises never tastes the same as it does outside the park. Plus, with the jacked-up prices, you feel like you're being ripped off.

I actually really liked the food that I got at the Cedar Point's Johnny Rockets when I ate there but the bill was pretty steep.

Den, speaking of vanilla Coke, Coca-Cola will actually be rolling out Vanilla Coke later this year.

As for JR's, heck, they're even on the Royal Caribbean cruise ships now. I don't mind a chain presence in parks where the food is mediocre at best. But I'd hate to see Knoebel's do it. I'd hate to see Disney and Universal do it (though I know Disney has caved in with McDonald's at a few spots in the Florida parks). While locals may not notice the difference, I think it's cool when the hook-up is local, like PKI going with LaRosa and Skyline and Montgomery.

JR at Cedar works for me because of the half-dozen meals I've had there in a half-dozen different venues, not one was memorable. Well, the buffet place wasn't that bad, though I think it was the two-fer coupon or the respite from the heat talking.

Is that based on your extensive market research?

"Real" park food is the stuff you don't get outside of the park, like the fresh-cut fries, footlongs, etc. These are not items you get at McDonalds. Cedar Point food isn't bad, esepcially the fries, but Busch Williamsburg still gets the top spot for my liking. That's the way park food should be, not franchise crap.

Johnny Rocket's is good, but you haven't lived until you've been to In-N-Out. There in California, Arizona, and Nevada I think, and it's sooooo good. Another SoCal favorite I love is Ruby's diner. The best one is on the Baliboa pier, it's picture perfect.

I've always said Busch parks have the best food....and at BGT you can get AYCE at the restaurant overlooking the wildlife, reasonable (about $10!) and good....and table service. Only problem is, who has time for table service when there's coasters to ride....

I*I* had time for table service. In fact of all the parks we went to in Florida last year, Sea World was the only one where we *didnt* eat at a sit down place. I actually wish *more* parks would invest in wait service joints.

Besides, that restaurant @ BGT is only steps away from the best coaster in Florida.

The colony restaurant at BGT has a excellent vista of the big three coasters: Montu, Gwazi and the distant but still visible Kumba. Great restaurant and the view is amazing. You really appreciate all the natural landscape at BGT when you see the view of green savannahs and B&M and GCI coasters in between.

Johnny Rockets is one of the most expensive burger joints I have ever been to. Bring about 10 bucks if you want a nice meal.
