Johnny Rockets retro burger chain returning to Walden Galleria mall

Walden Galleria is welcoming Johnny Rockets back to its roster of restaurants.

The retro burger and malt joint had been a fixture at the Galleria since 1998, but pulled out of the mall last year.

Walden Galleria tweeted a picture Wednesday afternoon of a sign advertising the restaurant near its indoor go-kart track Pole Position Raceway on the mall’s second floor between DSW and Old Navy.

“After our breakup last year, it looks like @JohnnyRockets missed us! We’re getting back together!” the tweet said.

The Galleria restaurant will be the only New York State location west of Syracuse. There is another Johnny Rockets in Niagara Falls, Canada.

Neither Walden Galleria nor Johnny Rockets immediately returned calls to comment. There is no indication as to when the restaurant will open or whether it will be owned by a new franchisee.
