johnny rockets - please explain it to me

Recommended Posts

Interesting..I have not heard of any of the ships in the fleet doing JR's a la carte pricing.

 

Wonder if this is something new they are trying....or if this was just so they can cut back on the food they offer around the pool(no more or very few pool bbq's now or sail away buffets or midnight buffets or)

 

While I think being able to buy 1 item or 2 for less than the $6.95 cover charge, overall I think I would rather just be charged the flat rate and not have to worry about how much each item is or how much I have eaten!..ha

I have sailed the Navigator, and they had alacarte pricing at Johnny Rockets. I am sailing the Liberty (In exactly seven days!) and I believe they also have alacarte pricing.

Did you get it to go by chance? I have heard that they charge a la carte on did with a flat fee if you do this.

I don't understand why you would pay extra to eat at Johnny Rockets.  You can get burgers and hot dogs in Windjammer.  On Sea Days, they set up a pool-side buffet with burgers and hot dogs.  You can eat at Sonic (and a dozen other burger places) in any home town.

"Apple pie without cheese is like a kiss without a squeeze" -- Isn't that the old slogan?

lol!!! Yes! I've never heard anyone else use that, my grandma used to say it. "Pie without cheese is like a kiss without a squeeze". My wife rolls her eyes whenever I say it 😋

I feel the same way.  We actually had a Johnny Rockets restaurant in my town for a year or so, but it failed due to there being so many other better hamburger options locally.  I don't understand the appeal of a burger that is of the same quality of what's sitting under the heat lamps in the Windjammer. It's just a glorified McDonalds.

 

We're sailing on Carnival Triumph in August and will check out Guy's Burger Joint ... just for the sake of comparison, of course.

Guy's Burgers kicks JR's butt and without an extra charge.  The toppings bar alone is worth the price of what JR charges.  The pig patty (a patty made completely out of ground bacon) is a bit salty, however.  They'll even top your burger with onion rings if you want.

 

Carnival's complimentary burrito/taco bar also beats Rita's Cantina.  In addition, they have a really good selection of salsas (try the watermelon) and breakfast burritos made to order in the morning.  The only downside is limited hours.  I think they close by 2 or 3 in the afternoon each day.  Guy's is open a bit later (6ish), but I hear they are considering staying open later.

Just wish they had larger coffee mugs. 

For my last cruise.. and all future cruises more than 3 nights, I will be taking my 16oz coffee mug.. I loved popping up to WJ to fill it with coffee and return to my cabin.

Say what you want about JR, but, you cannot do better than "The Works" for breakfast. And, there is no charge for a breakfast in Johnny Rockets!. Just wish they had larger coffee mugs.

Good point! Breakfast is a great complimentary option there.

Has anybody seen long waits on Harmony now that it is a comp. meal for Boardwalk cabin folks??

Is complimentary for all of these cabins on all Oasis class ships. For what it's worth, it was always easy to get seats on the Allure, probably given the long hours that it's open. Sea days were more crowded, but I never saw a wait when I went by.
