My husband and I were unfamiliar with the area and decided to stop here and eat lunch when we saw how popular the place was with the local working people. The parking lot was almost full. The restaurant is located in the general store. You briefly walk through a hallway filled with hunting regalia before entering the restaurant. The restaurant... More

Horrible! Absolutely the worst BBQ and Lousy service My Kids and I decided to take my mom out lunch this past Saturday. We loved the decors and we were pretty psyched to get some Good southern BBQ. All the food was under seasoned and mine in particular was under cooked. RAW. Let me describe the ribs to you starting with... More

We were in the area at antique shops and decided to try out Johnny's. We both had BBQ, stew and fries. Yummy! We also looked through the general store items, Carhartt clothes, Wolverine boots, guns, ammo, knives and the list goes on.

The Bar-B-Q is very good. The servers are very nice and the food comes out fast. The sweet tea is awesome.

Consistent fast service, very tasty BBQ and very reasonable prices. It's a good home town feel. The children can watch the toy train run around the ceiling of the restaurant.

We love Johnny's BBQ! We love that it's not a chain restaurant but a small family business! The Hickory Fries are amazing! These are fresh cut fries not frozen topped with BBQ and cheese! It comes with a side of salad dressing. The Ranch Dressing is some of the best I've ever had! Prices are very reasonable too!

I went to Johnny's on a recommendation. I was getting the "Take Out". Walked into a filthy kitchen/order desk area. Greasy dust webs on the ceiling and equipment. It looks as if the kitchen wasn't cleaned in years. I still tried the ribs. The ribs were average in taste and moistness but there were some areas of the ribs which... More
