Worth visiting as it's a Clarksville/APSU institution. Burgers are better than average and the honey bun "ala mode" is very good.

As a local of Clarksville, I love Johnny’s. Such a fun little diner feel. The cheese burger steaks and fries are my favorite and you absolutely much have a pecan pie heated with ice cream.

Johnny's has been around "forever". And good reason for this. Great burgers done like you'd expect in an old diner. Very good taste. Low prices. Excellent service. Be sure to have cash or use the ATM inside the door.

I was really excited to try Johnny’s...classic burger joint. It was good enough, but nothing special. Service was friendly, albeit slow. And the fries weren’t delicious, which is my only real complaint. Oh, and the honey bun was a delightful surprise...never had one, but it...More

We aim to do one thing at Johnny's Big Burger. That's to make the best burgers and fries in town. We were established in 1965, which was a totally different era. People took pride in their work and they worked hard with honor for what they earned. Things were affordable. People cared about what they produced. This principle is still alive at Johnny's. We work hard, so that you can have the best. We are proud of this tradition. We have our meat delivered every day. It's fresh ground and you can taste the difference. We NEVER serve meat that has been frozen. It's always fresh and made to order.
