“Weekend Breakfast Special Place”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Johnny's has become so well appreciated by the members of our church it has become our after church gathering place on Sunday mornings. Always a great special available or order off the menu. Friendly staff and a good atmosphere mixed with great food makes this a place to eat.

“Just average”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

If a friendly staff, lots of locals and walls filled with interesting historical items were all that counted, this would be a fine place to pull up a chair. But the food is no more than average. Tasty but over-salted posole. Pretty good, but fairly mild red. An over-priced, open-face burger plate ($10) where the green chile was all but lost when it was absorbed on half of a run-of-the-mill bun. This was our second stop here so maybe we just picked the wrong items again. Nothing bad, just nothing to write home about. Tables full of young and old diners were laughing and enjoying their meals. Which makes me think we ought to give it another try the next time we're in town. Or maybe we'll just continue driving to Santa Fe or Raton, where there are restaurants that, over the years, have constantly provided well-made New Mexican food.

“Delicious taste of New Mexico”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

I was traveling through Las Vegas on my way to Taos recently and stopped here. Wow! What a treat.They had fantastic red and green chile. My chili came smothered on a chicken-covered sopapillo. It was pure heaven.

“Real Mexican Food”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

We stopped about noon on a Sunday and they were still serving breakfast. Great menus for Breakfast and Lunch. My wife had the short stack and loved it and I had the pozole. The pozole was excellent altho it did not have big chunks of carntas in it. It still had the flavor of carnitas. I will try something else next time since I enjoyed the pozole. The menu had a lot of REAL Mexican dishes.
