Came into town and visited a place that I used to go daily back in the 80's. Place still looks the same which is a good thing. Food is good.

I go to Johnnies every week for breakfast. The food is really good and very inexpensive. Make sure you bring cash. Plastic is no accepted.

I eat breakfast and lunch at Johnnies on a regular basis. The place is an old "greasy spoon" but they make great breakfast and lunches at reasonabe prices. It's a 'cash only' business so be prepared for that. Expect the place to be crowded at breakfast and lunch times.

Johnnies is my local go-to for breakfast. Their breakfast menu contains the usual breakfast items. The waitresses make the difference, they are very friendly and never let your coffee go below half full.

We've lived in the area for a couple years now and I just now learned about this place. It's a pretty small hole in the wall place but it is terrific. The restaurant itself is shaped in a circular fashion which I just loved. The food is dirt cheap and you get plenty to eat. We had breakfast here and... More

Breakfast only. Not sure about now but your clothing crawled from the dense smoke clinging to them after leaving this place. Everyone was smoking in this small space.
