I recently had a chocolate shake at the Providence Place Mall Jhonny Rocket location. It was great. I have had their shakes before at other locations and found them to be very average. Have they improved at all stores, or just this one?

    I thought Johnny Rockets malts were way too sweet. The kids I took liked them, though.
    (Union Station, Washington DC).

    I actually think this is one place that has gone downhill.
    I went to Johnny Rockets in Myrtle Beach about...oh...maybe 10 years ago.
    It was great. Had a great time, food was good, service was great.

    I think this explosion into the Malls has been bad news for the quality.

      They are also putting them on cruise ships, or more accuratly the cruise ships pay to put up a JR sign and staff it themselves. My cruise line sales rep tells me that the JR help gets extensive training in how to act the part. There is always a line at the shipboard JR, even though there is the same burger up on the lido deck buffet. The cruiseline put on a surcharge at the JRs to cut down on the line. (or so they say) All of the JRs I have ever been to have been in malls. I've been to the Burlington Mass mall (my first), Barefoot Landing at Myrtle Beach, and now Providence (RI) Place.
