Food came faster than we ordered it. They took cash only. Great watermelon and Italian lemon ices. Always busy.

Johnny's is focused on doing a few things really well. For me, it is all about the Combo Hot. Italian beef and Italian char grilled sausage on Italian bread with hot peppers. Not a hard sandwich to find in the Chicagoland area, but hard to...More

Went to Johnnie's Beef and had a Juicy Italian Beef sandwich with fries and a Frozen Lemonade.. It was delicious. The place has indoor and outdoor seating. They also had Hot Dogs on their menu all at very cheap prices. We will Return!
