We were in the area visiting a local park and decided to stop for lunch. Have t oadmit this was not our original destination, but so glad we ended up here. BBQ was amazing! Service was excellent and prices were reasonable. Only problem is...we live an hour away, so we won't be visiting often :(

Don't leave plant city without eating at Johnson's or you will be missing out. This is one of the best barbaque places to eat at. We travel 40 min just to eat at Johnson's. The service is always great too. The sweat potato casserole is to die for.
