We stopped her based on other reviews, and I must say they were right! We all had a pasta dish of so,e sort, and we all took leftovers home. The garlic knots were amazing, and all the bread tasted very fresh. Highly recommend!

The only thing I Dislike is that it is so popular it could be three times this size and still be full every night! There are Three Pizza Restaurants I LOVE in Johnson City and Johnny Brusco's is one of them. I love them all for different creations and for their Staff.....fun and friendly, great value on great food!

Garlic knots were half price so we decided to try them. Much larger order than we expected. They were awesome! Ordered a large pizza because it was $4.50 off.. it was GIGANTIC. There were only 2 of us but we can usually eat at least half of a large pizza.. between the two of us we only ate about half... More

If you like garlic, try there garlic knots. Plenty of garlic and "butter", yum. Their pizzas are very good too. This is a kid friendly place.

My husband and I stopped in for dinner. We each ordered a slice and a small salad. The salad was fine--ordinary, nothing special, but also nothing wilted which is always a plus. The server offered extra dressing if desired (which my husband appreciated). I had the Greek dressing and my husband had blue cheese, both OK, not great. The slices... More

Ok, so they really are NYC-sized pizza slices, which means more value for the money. And they really are $1 per slice for cheese slices on a particular day of the week (right now it's Monday's). And they really do feel like a mid-scale Pizza Hut, minus all the grease on your pizza. What's not to like?

I had dinner at this restaurant with my son. He had two large slices of pizza and I had a pasta dinner. Both were good. I have had dinner here before and we will return. Great family oriented atmosphere and a great option when you don't want to cook at home.

Was gonna try pizza by the slice but found that by doing that it was gonna be over $5 a slice for the toppings I wanted so I went with an entree instead. I had the Bronx bomber which was meatballs, sausage and pepperoni. It was just OK, wasn't great. I will come again to try something else. Our waiter... More

I've reviewed this restaurant before but recently went there and found something I didn't like. The Garlic Knots. Save your money. They were very hard balls of overdone dough drizzled with oleomargarine and had minced garlic haphazardly sprinkled over the knots. Not appetizing and certainly didn't look good. Not Johnny's usual quality. Will still come back but not for Knots.

We are former Greg's Pizza lovers but since it changed hands have been looking for a place that uses top quality ingredients. Last night, we found a place. The Quattro formaggio pizza was excellent, and the caprese salad was too. If you appreciate fine ingredients, give these guys a try. I promise you won't be disappointed.
