Anytime we travel, we always look for a great local BBQ place. We found one at Johnny's. Service started a little slow but they were busy. We had a very attentive friendly waitress & got our food pretty quick. Their brisket is awesome, as well as the ribs....just enough smoke flavor. Ribs were fall off the bone & the brisket was very tender. Smoked sausage was flavorful. Coleslaw was good & so were the fried pickles. Drinks were good as well. We will be stopping in again next tune we're passing through on the way to Dallas.

Even though we had to wait for 30 mins, Trey took care of us, with our drinks and they were excellent, i love the Sierna Punch, not too strong at all! Love to come here again! 20 /10 !

This spot has been a favorite for years. Multiple stops back and forth taking kids to college @UT Austin.

It’s very apparent that the once haute spot has fallen- and hard. The pre mix potatoes were a disaster along with the soggy cole slaw. I just did not notice quick enough the number of full plates left after the guests departed. I had already ordered.

The brisket was hard and dry...and even during prime lunch time.

Ever since the counter service came to an end, the service has fallen just as hard as the food and lack of quality thereof.

The once must have has turned into a tourist trap...don’t waste your time.

12 oz. ribeye on special, “Fabulous “. The staff very friendly. Clean place for a rustic look. Honesty stems from leaving cc and staffs ability to coordinate the return of the cc. Would come again.
