I mean loads of combinations. regular or sweet potato fries or tot and several other selections. Good shakes as well. From basic to one of the crazy combos with topping in.... More

Nice Fast Food place for every style of Hot Dog that you can name, but the price is a bit high for what you get. I tried the New York Style Hot Dog with the onions in red sauce, and it was good, and it did taste like a Hot Dog off of the wagons in New York City. We... More

This cute little place offers a wide variety of hotdogs (my favorite being the Chicago dog). The decorations are cute, and many of the walls are covered with pictures of visitors eating at Johnnie's. Great food. Great prices. Friendly people.

When someone tells me that they know where I can get a vegan hotdog, I usually roll my eyes and laugh at the thought of being subjected to a rubbery, overcooked mess. I was wrong.... The vegan dogs (and sausages!) at Johnnie's are great-- juicy and flavorful and just plain yum. I ordered mine with potato chips and pineapple on... More

Pretty good all beef dogs, and the toppings were creative. House-made potato chips were first rate. Price was right. Definitely a good alternative to chain fast food places if you're near Concord Pike. Wouldn't want to make a regular habit of it, but it was worth a quick meal.

Johnnie's is the typical small, hole in the wall, but has terrible hot dogs. You can get anything you want on your hot dog and it is all good. I also had onion rings which were excellent. The soft serve ice cream was very creamy and delicious! When in Wilmington, DE, stop by Johnnie's for a terrific hot dog.

Small, pleasant place---pictures of patrons all over...kind cool. A few tables, but a straight ahead dog place. They do serve burgers, veggie stuff too (such heresy!) but the dogs the main deal. Soda the bev... More

Great hot dogs - lots of choices. Good fries, too. Quick service and nice clean environment. What's not to love?

We live very close and eat here every so often. The place is clean and the food tasty. We usually have regular dogs, fries, veggie sausage (yum!). There is a good variety for less healthy to vegetarian. I enjoy the sweet potato fries. It's a bit pricey but worth it for the ease of parking and clean place. Even the... More

Johnnie's is a must visit! The food was delicious! One of the best Chicago style hot dogs I have ever had. My husband said the same of his Michigan style dog, and our son loved just a dog and a bun. The fries were great, too! Definitely will visit again when in the area!
