If i Could give a zero I would. The food was Okay but the service was terrible and made me regret to even go there. They burned my food and the waitress attitude was unbearable . She made comments loudly How I’ am making more...work for Her with asking for takeaway .(I asked for a nachos bowl)More

I have had hamburgers, buffalo hot wings and milk shakes. Even though they dont ask how you want your burger cooked, it comes out perfect medium and really juicy. Buttered bun too. Buffalo wing sauce is on point and as good as any in USA...but the wings dont have much meat on them. BbQ wings sauce is really good as well. The milk shakes. OMG. Glass comes dripped in fondant, there is pretzels, candy, all kinds of stuff on top. They are really next level and worth a trip just for the shakes. English spoken quite well. Service is Hungarian so don't expect many smiles but we had no problems with our orders in two trips.More

I read an article about the place a few years ago. I tried out Johnny’s and loved it at once. Good quality big amounts nice desserts. Prices are abs fine. 2 years ago they opened a new place at Buda. It is better for me...since it is closer to me. It is a quite place and during summer you sit outside the terrace. I always eat burger so i dont really know how the other foods are but my friends say that they are fine too. I recommend the place.More

Hi, Thank you for your positive feedback! I am glad, that you love Diósd and Buda Johnny's. Have you heard we have also opened one in Veszprém and Siófok? If you travel nearby, don't miss them out! Thanks, Petra

I do like the place. I was struggling between very good and average but ended up with average. I love the buffalo wings - so far the best I have had in Budapest - recommended. But on our last visit the burritos were rather lame...(more kick/taste needed) and the pasta was not very good either. The service has been good whenever I have visited the place.More

Not recommended. The foods are delicious, but the service is terrible (indolent and very unprofessional). Disappointing at all.

I've been to Johnny's when the first restaurant was opened, and the chef was still Johnny. It was a really speacial place, where you could get a burger, like no other, and all the food was a bit of perfection, a bit of real life...and something close to perfection (like Johnny :D). Well sadly it's not anymore. The menu is great, and the food sounds and look great, but the taste is nothing special. We've tried a lot of things, but did not have that awesome feeling like before, and did not feel that we would come back any time. It's also about the little things... we've ordered fried chicken with honey mustard (as it was on the menu), and have gotten regular mustard. When we wanted to order dessert, we've waited 20 minutes for the waiter (no waiter has shown up for 15 minutes before already, so we've waited 30-35 minutes). However, they were nice, or let's say, there was no problem with the service (other than this).More

Great little out of the way California Beach Cafe in Budapest. Good burgers and beach bar type food with a special style not seen in CA.

A diner offering burgers, hot-dogs, sandwiches, wraps, and salads. Not bad, not good - just average. Trendy junk food in American environment at average price level. Location is fine.
