The Las Vegas Breakfast!!!!

Nice place. Great local flair with a spectacular breakfast, The Las Vegas Breakfast. The best value for a big breakfast in the state.

We were tired and just wanted to get home when we saw Johnny's sign for the Las Vegas breakfast special. Decided for $4.25 it couldn't be worse than quickie burger drive through breakfast so we gave it a shot. EXCELLENT CALL!!!! Fresh, home cooked breakfast and plenty to fill us up for a 10 hour car ride. We make it... More

The coffee was fantastic and the food was delicious. Every employee that we spoke with was very friendly. The portions were large and a great value for the price. Ramon, our server, provided friendly service and never let our cups go empty.

The food here was in the bottom third of any Mexican I've had. The taco was greasy and soggy. The ground beef filling was hamburger with no spices or flavor. The Navajo taco was poor fry bread under a mass of tasteless red sauce. We went here as our first choice was closed on Tues and it was a mistake.... More

I am a stickler for authentic Mexican beans, and this place completely missed the mark. Service was ok but overall not impressed. Would not return or recommend.

If you have a neat-fetish, you will be uneasy. It's hard to find two tables and chairs alike. Noisy A/C (may have been broken). HOWEVER, our breakfasts were superb and reasonably priced. Eat a light dinner the night before and plan to skip lunch.

The food is excellent. Lawrence is a friendly efficient server. You will love the bacon and especially the chili relleno omelette.

We were looking for a good restaurant between Albuquerque and Denver to stop at for our family and friends since we are always traveling between the two cities. So, based on a referral, we tried Johnny's Kitchen in Las Vegas. We have never experienced such rude waitresses or a complete lack of service. We heard the waitress assigned to our... More

We always stop here on the way up to Denver for their great breakfast. When we stopped in April 2015 there was a breakfast special in honor of Johnny who had just passed away. The special was the Huevos Rancheros and as usual, very good. We ordered a side of bacon that proved perfect - thick and cooked just right.... More
