We ate here the first night. It was walking distance from hotel. They have a great selection of foods - however food is very bland. I ordered pork chops and needed seasoning for everything. You do get free refills on drinks. No alcohol served here....I think the clientele are seniors who don't want food with much seasoning.More

We attempt to support family businesses. We have eaten at John's for more than 10 years. However, I am sorry to say, the last 4-5 times we have been there have been big disappointments. Recently we have been going in for our usual favorites. However,...all the portions were half of the normal size, not nearly as filling and poorly cooked.. Today, 12/5/20 we ordered take out and picked it up in the required time. We only live about 10 mins from John's - food was not only cold, but French Fries were limp. The hamburger was missing the cheese and my fajita plate, the refried beans were cold and solidified and the rice was white rice. Who uses plain white rice for a fajita plate? On top of everything, the service was unwelcoming . We used to recommend John's to everyone. We won't be doing that anymore.More

After searching the area for good Breakfast places (there are few), we chose John's Restaurant. You order at the counter, then they deliver to your table. Lots of choices on the menu. Good food, good service, and the price what appropriate. Since we are in...the area for a week, we will return.More

So the waitress clearing the tables has dirty hands and rag then switches to carry food to the table with dirty hands and rag over her wrist. Kinda gross! Must be a violation of code.

We were looking for a breakfast place and we were hungry. This was the right place. I had the biscuits and gravy with two eggs and two slices of bacon. I wish the biscuits had been a little more substantial. My friend had the french...toast, eggs and bacon plate. The french toast was good and cinnamon-y. You order and pay at the counter and they bring the food to you. The food came out quickly. They refilled waters well. It was very clean.More

After a long boring drive we wanted somewhere reasonable within walking distance to hotel. Restaurant empty early evening but cheerful service. A typical greasy spoon type place but food hit the spot and was plentiful.

Looking for new place for Breakfast. Decided on John’s on 111. Sunday morning special Biscuit and Gravy. Breakfast Burrito was very good.

The local greasy spoon says it all. Solid menu and good sized portions. Not a health food type place, and you are on your own about your healthy choices.

We have eaten here twice already for dinner and both times we were so impressed with the food. We just could not understand why they are not more busy. First time we ate there we had the salmon. It was prepared just right and was...so delicious and juicy. The second time, we had the rib steak and again that was cooked just right and was so juicy. I highly recommend stopping here for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You will not be dissapointed.More
