Starting Tuesday, guests at Johnny Rockets restaurant chain can enjoy its burgers, now double-stacked and stuffed. In August, Johnny Rockets' culinary team announced that they were involving consumers in menu development for the brand's ongoing limited-time menu offerings. The new burgers, available for a limited time only at participating restaurants through November 15, are once again a result of consumer feedback and taste tests. The majority of consumers asked for more beef, more cheese, more bacon, and more elements of surprise on their burgers. 

Johnny Rockets' stuffed, double-stack burgers are a Teriyaki Pineapple Double-Stack, a Spicy Southern Double-Stack, and the All-American Bacon Double-Stack. 

In addition, in anticipation of the nationwide release of Goosebumps, the new movie starring Jack Black based on the worldwide best-selling Scholastic book series by R.L. Stine, Johnny Rockets is teaming up with Sony Pictures Entertainment for the restaurant chain's first shake celebrating a major studio film release. The Johnny Rockets Goosebumps shake is available now in participating restaurants just ahead of the film's October 16 nationwide release. 

The Teriyaki Pineapple Double-Stack Burger has two fresh beef patties, a slice of sweet grilled pineapple, melted provolone cheese, and a sweet and salty pineapple teriyaki sauce, lettuce and tomato on an artisan bun.

The Spicy Southern Double-Stack Burger includes a creamy Sriracha pimento cheese, combining a hot and tangy taste with a hint of sweetness with a Southern icon mix of sharp cheddar and pimento, on two beef patties, with a spring lettuce mix, tomato, dill pickle chips, and mayonnaise on an artisan bun.

The All-American Bacon Double-Stack has American cheese melted between two beef patties so it sinks deep into the fresh beef, a spring lettuce mix, tomato and a special that combines mayonnaise, sweet relish, seasonings, and chili sauce on an artisan bun.

"People already love our farm-fresh hamburgers so it just makes sense that our guests want more of what they love in one sandwich," says Joel Bulger, chief marketing officer for Johnny Rockets. "We've now doubled the beef patties and doubled the taste and also included all the right stuff to complement each burger with a variety of ingredients."

The Goosebumps shake is made with premium vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, and milk, mixed with Oreo pieces, and topped with whipped cream, an Oreo garnish, and colorful gummy worms.

"Based on its popularity over the past couple of decades, there is no doubt that many Johnny Rockets guests have grown up reading the Goosebumps books and introduced them to their kids,” Bulger adds. “Goosebumps is loaded with delicious, scary fun, so we're thrilled to be continuing the movie experience with a special Goosebumps shake inspired by the movie."
