“frankly speaking...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

So we're cruising down Route 46 in Buttzville -- hold it, please, with the end-of-the-world jokes -- and here's this green and orange image called Hot Dog Johnny's and Johnny, that's all they offer, hot dogs, fries, soda (only a recent addition, we believe) and, for the adventuresome, buttermilk, for which he haven't yet had the nerve... What a terrific place, a terrific location with a stream trickling by, the dogs are boiled, the fries have greased the bag by time we reach the outdoor table and devour them to the accompaniment of the trickle of a neighboring stream... we go out of our way often to stop here, like a 50-year detour in time... our ratings, for the record, are a comparison to what the place promotes itself as, and by that scale, Hot Dog Johnny's comes pretty close to perfection...

“Got to visit once”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

This is just one of those spots still there from the 40's and 50's in NJ on Route 46. Good place for a motorcycle ride. IT is a good dog. One problem. They do not have sauerkraut for their dogs. And god forbid if you ask they get mad. But looking past that. Milk shake is decent. Dog is good, but I like more toppings.

“A New Jersey Classic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Everytime that I'm up in the area, I stop by. Their hot dogs are terrific and very inexpensive. Love their birch beer. I have a young hot dog lover in the family who rates their dogs as the best!

“Hot Dog!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you ever take a ride up to Northwest Jersey, you just have to stop by Johnny's and have one of their famous dogs...and the BEST fries you will ever taste...piping hot, crispy, and salty...and a frosty mug of birch beer...oh, and a Tastycake for dessert...even in the midst of winter, you can still enjoy the whimsy of Johnny's...the Christmas lights in the freezing cold make the dogs even more delicious...my mouth is watering, just thinking about my next trip
