UTC is a short walk to get a meal for me. UTC is an attractive dinner spot as traffic in this area is terrible at dinner time so I don’t like hopping in the car. I tend to alternate between Red Robin and Eureka Burger when I’m in the mood for a burger. I was interested when I noticed Johnny Rockets opened in the food court and they were advertising on groupon.
Vanilla shake tasted rich and creamy like soft serve. One of the best I’ve had at a fast food joint.
Onion rings had a nice crunchy texture but there was a nasty after taste. I suspect the oil needed changing.
Fries were crunchy and had good potato flavor.
Quarter pounder had nice beefy flavor and the bacon had a nice savory flavor. I like this burger better than ones I’ve had at Jack in the Box or Burger King. I prefer the flavor of the beef at Red Robin & Eureka Burger. Those places beef tastes higher quality and they season it a bit more.
Servers were nice and friendly but the cook put cheese on the burger when I asked for no cheese. He made another pretty quickly.
There is a nice view of the ice rink so you won’t be bored while you eat.
This place is ok but I’d rather pay a bit more for a burger at Red Robin or Eureka Burger. I am really looking forward to when Shake Shack opens later this year. I wonder if UTC is big enough to support 4 burger joints…
