Johnny Rockets Rocks these Dairy-Free Burger and Fry Options


Johnny Rockets is a 1950’s style diner with a big burger and fries menu. Even their staff plays the part, often dancing to the tunes. Of course, the shakes are off limits for dairy-free diners, but there are quite a few burgers, sandwiches, sides, and starters that we can enjoy at this quintessentially American restaurant chain.

Their allergen chart is a bit overwhelming, but luckily, there are quite a few dairy-free options buried in the mess. We’ve put them together into a neat and tidy allergen menu to offer some guidance at a glance. In the past, they also offered dairy-free brownies and apple pie at most locations. These don’t seem to be standard desserts at Johnny Rockets anymore, but it never hurts to ask!
