“Quickie. Good hamburgers.”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

This is a quickie, but I liked the taco hamburgers I got here when I started my Southwest vacation earlier this year. Be sure to stop by.

“Yum yum Good Stuff”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

The food was great! A traditional American style breakfast with a Mexico flair. Service was fantastic! But beware - they are not open on Mondays. Neither are any other places in Marathon. If you are hungry on a Mond

“Nice spot for lunch”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

This is a nice little breakfast-and-lunch nook, one of the very few eating options in Marathon. It is very much a country diner kind of place, so don't expect fancy silverware or valet parking. ;-)

We had lunch there and ordered chicken salad and a burger. Both hit the spot. The tomatoes on the salad were particularly good - presumably they source them from a local grower, because they actually had flavor and weren't like the standard supermarket tomatoes from home.

“Nice atmosphere, food ok”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Coffee good. My Chiorzo scrambled eggs fair, dry, beans from can & microwaved too long. Daughter loved her biscuits & gravy, son liked bacon & sunny side up, hubby liked trash can burrito. Seems like a nice down home place so rated as as average.

“About The Only Place to Eat Breakfast”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Johnny B's was about the only place to have breakfast near *the* hotel in Marathon. But that's not as bad as it sounds. The service was fine, as was the food. I'd call the restaurant very local in appearance---not very different from those in rural Massachusetts (where we once lived) that catered to those in all walks of life. Lots of character and operated by friendly people. If we were back in town, we'd certainly go back. As to the rating, I'd put it between average and very good. Call it good and a also a good value for money as the Britons like to say. Bottom line: recommend.
