“Great food, consistently”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

I've been eating from Johnny's for five years now and typically order the same thing: small chef salad with ranch. Yum! And I recently tried a tropical smoothie and really enjoyed that as well. The owner is super friendly as well as the staff. Oh, the broccoli cheese soup is really good too!

“Great place”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

The soups and salads are great. Johnny is a character and makes the visit memorable. It can take a little bit to get food. The wait is worth it.

“Terrible, ok food but WAY overpriced for what you get.”
Reviewed February 2, 2011

The food we ok, just ok. but the price was out of this world.
Skip this place and hit subway, its the same quality for 1/3 the price.

Call ahead because this is a busy deli. Food is awsome and well worth the wait.
