For anyone who's unfamiliar with the Johnny Rockets chain, it is a (typically) cheap place with a 1950s burger joint theme. Ugly paper hats, nickel jukeboxes on the tables, uniforms and all. The burgers are decent and the shakes are great, plus the price is cheap-to-average.
The one at the Levy, however, was Johnny Rockets in name only. The prices had been hiked at least $3.00 per menu item. What I would have ordered, chicken strips, were a whopping $9.30. They're not that good, folks! Furthermore, when we received our bills, they had automatically added a 20% gratuity. For a party of four. I was pissed. For a regular vanilla shake and side of (crappy) fries, I ended up paying $10.00.
When I ranted to a friend, she said she'd experienced the same auto-gratuity for a party of three. Can you get any more ridiculous?
I read on this community that you can refuse to pay the suggested gratuity and write in your own, but I didn't feel like it. Instead, I'll never be going back again - I hope they enjoy their extra two bucks.
