Yesterday I visited the Johnny Rockets at Kennywood and was disappointed by the wait I had to get seated. It appears to me that the restaurant is understaffed and until this situation is corrected the addition of Johnny Rockets is not going to be very successful.
On the other hand the food was good after we finally got in and served.
They haven’t been open for very long yet, and I’m sure they’re still getting all of the kinks worked out.
The place is over staffed actually.. The servers often crowd and stand around.. The kitchen is not equipped to handle more than 50 people at most, meanwhile the restaurant seats about 200.. something needs to be done desperately….. it kind of puts true Johnny Rockets to shame for the most part..
We were greeted with a disclosure… “we are serving a limited menu – no burgers or hot dogs, just appetizers and chicken tenders” – when we asked why we were told the kitchen is understaffed. How can a chain known for burgers NOT serve burgers?!?! We were very disappointed! While they said the kitchen was understaffed, the wait staff seemed to be bored and not have enough to do – at least 8 people were standing around doing nothing.
