In July 2007, New York welcomes Johnny Utah's, the urban cowboy experience, to Rockefeller Center. The Johnny Utah's experience begins with cuisine full of flavors & spices which embody the real meaning of Southwestern food. With hearty recipes of our cultural ancestors, Johnny Utah’s will offer a menu full of zesty Texan BBQ ribs, savory steak fajitas, & authentic Mexican tequila. Almost every seat in the house has a view of the dining room’s main attraction, Manhattan’s only mechanical bull. Showcasing the full essence of the Southwestern theme, the beast is theatrically surrounded with cascading metal chains & burning candles that echo “rings of fire,” signifying the celebration of the icon. The interior was designed as an interpretation of an old western mining shaft with salvaged antique tiles & pony-hide furniture. Johnny Utah’s is sure to serve as an ideal location for both delicious Southwestern food & drinks, & late night reveling & bull riding.

We went the other night for happy hour - the margaritas were good but when we were ordering appetizers - the tacos were the night's special for $3, we were told they only had cicken tacos so we opted for nachos instead - the chicken nachos were awful - dry and flavorless and $20 to boot for just two of...

...had been told to look up Johnny Utah's because it was a hopping country bar WITH A MECHANICAL BULL in the heart of NYC. In fact it's tucked away right across the street from Radio City. Just one flight below the streets of the town that never sleeps, you can't help but be impressed by the look of the place.... More

Nice hangout for a few drinks with friends and co-workers. Service was average and drink prices are typical for the NYC area. Happy hour specials are ok. Got in late so the kitchen was closed.

We stopped in at Johnny Utah's after the Christmas Show in Radio City Music Hall. It's across the street from Radio City in the same block - not much of a walk. Amazingly, it wasn't very crowded. The restaurant is downstairs (a lot of stairs) and I didn't see any elevator. My wife and I both ordered the French Dip... More

Margaritas were lousy, seats were sticky, and they weren't even playing country music. We had a few appetizers and drinks and then left. Thought it would have been a more fun atmosphere. The mechanical bull wasn't even on.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
