“Try the tortilla hamburger-it's absolutely delicious and very unique-”
Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Great diner on the main drag in Marathon. It's right next to the Gage Hotel. My husband had chicken fried steak and said it was great! I had the tortilla hamburger. I've lived in Texas all my life and never heard of it before. It was absolutely delicious. The service was good. They also handmade fountain drinks and ice cream treats. It has a cute decor and is very nice and clean.

“Great Food”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Went here with 2 buddies on the way to Big Bend. We all 3 had the breakfast burrito. We all 3 agree it was the best breakfast burrito we ever had. The salsa was hot (spicy) and good. Highly recommended for breakfast.

“My favorite breakfast around”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Love the price and the convenience. Love going to breakfast here. That's about all there is to say about this place. But I'm so glad that it exists.

“Great place!”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Great Tex-Mex breakfasts served by a friendly crew. We had breakfast there four days in a row, the length of our stay in Marathon, and still were not able to sample all the menu items we wanted.

“Vintage interior, Phoebe, great authentic Mexican breakfast - yum!!”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

After a wonderful experience at Big Bend National Park hiking with good friends we stopped at Johnny B's for breakfast on the way to the Midland airport. We had stopped at The Gage for dinner on way down and were hoping to repeat the great experience only to learn they do not serve breakfast. They recommended Johnny B's. It was great.

It is right next door to The Gage Hotel. It is small with a kitschy interior loaded with vintage metal signs. The bar is made of tin tiles. Phoebe was our waitress and she had a sweet, friendly and fun personality -- very patient with the 8 of us. She kept the coffee coming while we dawdled over our orders. We all loved what we had. I strongly recommend the migas and blueberry pancakes. It was inexpensive, delicious and authentic. (It should be so close to Mexico). Worth a trip out of your way to go there.
