Local BBQ Joint...40 Years Strong

This is the typical southern, small-town BBQ joint , which specializes in rapid service. Brunswick stew is passable. There is an area in the restaurant that sells workshirts and boots and overalls. They also sell wooden toys. This gives the place a good, homey feel. Another unique aspect is that... read more

We went after a baseball game. The BBQ was very good. The sweet tea is awesome. I loved the atmosphere...I will say that I was disappointed with their sides. I asked if the potato salad was prepared there...answer no. I would of loved some okra or Mac n cheese.

To the person that knocked it because of the sauce that is the main reason I continue To eat there the sauce is amazing its vinegar based and tangy and AMAZING!! Their salad dressing is like no other because they make them homemade the ranch is the best ranch I've ever had anywhere!! It is worth the trip!!!

Powder Springs isn't the most modern of places and the outside of this restaurant won't make you stop. However, the parking lot was full and that is always a good sign. A great decision! By no means fancy - very 60's & 70's decor. However, the food delivered to us by the very friendly (but country) server was surprisingly good... More

This is serious bar-b-que! I'm a pork ribs kinda girl. I want my sauce cooked on, and meat so tender that it falls off the bone! ALL accomplished! Grandson took us there and next trip back to see them, our treat. Great value!

This restaurant has been around since I was a child. The food has maintained it's great flavor since the 70's. It's still one of my favorite spots to grab a lunch or dinner.

Took a while for everyone's food to come out, when it did come out some of the food was cold. Ordered my food only to find out they didn't have anymore after waiting about 20 minuets. First and last time visiting this restaurant.

The pork salad is delicious. I love the ranch dressing, but it is definitely not a salad I would consider low-calorie. It is so good, though. The loaded potato is also great.

My family has eaten at Johnny's many times. I have NEVER had a problem. I think the barbeque sandwich was excellent. In response to another review, I wanted to reply that I order inside lean and have never had a problem. If I did, I feel sure that if I brought it to their attention, they would have fixed it...

I will have to say, that some in our group did like what they ordered. I have been there several times over the years, and never really liked it. Their Brunswick Stew looks and tastes like they whipped it up in a blender. No chunks of corn, meat, etc. It was not good. The barbecue was o.k., but I prefer... More
