“Interesting lunch stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

Pretty good all beef dogs, and the toppings were creative. House-made potato chips were first rate. Price was right. Definitely a good alternative to chain fast food places if you're near Concord Pike. Wouldn't want to make a regular habit of it, but it was worth a quick meal.

“Great hot dogs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

Johnnie's is the typical small, hole in the wall, but has terrible hot dogs. You can get anything you want on your hot dog and it is all good. I also had onion rings which were excellent. The soft serve ice cream was very creamy and delicious!
When in Wilmington, DE, stop by Johnnie's for a terrific hot dog.

“Pass the Brioschi....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

Madonna mia....stopped in for a dog---consider myself well versed in the "great dogs"...fact not boast. Never had the time before...so on errands and went in.

Small, pleasant place---pictures of patrons all over...kind cool. A few tables, but a straight ahead dog place. They do serve burgers, veggie stuff too (such heresy!) but the dogs the main deal. Soda the bev of choice.

I don't disguise my dogs...meant for a soft bun and mustard...old school...analog not digital.

These two were on a grill...and looked like they could grease the front end of my car. Buns were A1...soft to mash around the main event...Fries were cooked to order.

Dogs are all beef...strike one. Dogs were really, really greasy, strike two. The taste just not right...yeeeerrrr outa here.

Fries were good, done nicely, but those dogs...mama mia..

If they would invest in Kochers dogs for example---which I bow my head to every time I write of say that name---the $2.75 they now charge could easily handle the additional expense...

It is for those who don't love dogs, it is unfortunately for the masses...the quest continues.

“Cute Dog House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

We live very close and eat here every so often. The place is clean and the food tasty. We usually have regular dogs, fries, veggie sausage (yum!). There is a good variety for less healthy to vegetarian. I enjoy the sweet potato fries. It's a bit pricey but worth it for the ease of parking and clean place. Even the soft-serve ice cream is very tasty!
