I came here while visiting family in the area over the holidays. The ambiance was nice enough, and the servers were all efficient and friendly. I got the Southwest burger and fries. It tasted OK, even though the fries were really greasy. Then that night I felt a little weird. I woke up early the next morning and it was... More

I've been traveling to Johnston now for several weeks and have started to frequent this establishment quite a bit. They have a decent menu, good prices and a great selection of beer including local craft beers.

Went here for a business luncheon. The service was very friendly. There were eight of us, but food was still delivered in a timely manner. The hamburgers were cooked just right and the waffle fries were very good. The atmosphere was comfortable and allowed us to easily talk to each other. Will certainly go there next time I am in...

Have had many things at the Legends off 86th St in Johnston,IA - but my favorites are either the bacon bbq burger or the taco salad. Both are huge! Believe me - you don't leave hungry! Have always had excellent service as well!

Big place with lots of TVs. That get a 5 star rating. Unfortunately that the best. Service was mediocre and I sat at the bar. Wanted some items left off my salad. Not a chance. Wanted the salad first. No such luck. Wanted crispy wings. Can't have your way. Order next to me wanted grilled chicken on their salad. Nope.... More

Had the French Beef dip. The sandwich was mediocre. Great waffle fries! Half price Iowa made beers before 6 on Wednesday night. Still $3 which makes the regular price seem pretty expensive to me..... Service was fast and staff friendly. Lot of TV'S to see sporting events. Not a bad place, but better value /quality combinations out there in this... More

We stayed at the Stoney Creek Hotel which was right across the way for this restaurant. We went there 3 days in a row it was such a good place to have drinks and food. The 1st day i had a cajun burger and it was huge, good and they cooked it perfectly. I hate when restaurants can't even cook... More

Started with the onion rings. Thin, crispy and served with a chipotle ranch sauce. Tasty. Followed by the chicken quesadilla and the chicken bacon wrap. Both were good.

The food was good and everything g came out right. The problem you will run into here is if you are there for lunch, you will run out of time. We went there twice and both times we were late getting back. It wasn't crowded but it took too long both times. If time isn't an issue, it's worth stopping... More
