We wanted something different for lunch and constantly drive past Johnnie's but had never stopped so today we decided to go for lunch. We got the plain dog combo which included 2 dogs and a drink. Figured if they couldn't get plain dogs right then don't bother with anything else. The plain dogs were great! We also ordered the tenders... More

Enjoyed a fine lunch at Johnnies today and came back at 7PM for 2 X buckets of their great chicken to share while watching NCAA basketball games. Chicken is as good as Walt's Flavor Chris any day !

We try to come here at least once a month, my husband and I love all the veggie dog options. Always on point, even when they're busy, food comes out pretty quickly for this type of place. Our only grip is why are they trying to turn it into a chicken joint.....the hot dogs are great, no need to add... More

Great dog and burger joint!! I haven't had a hotfdog with chili and coleslaw since we lived in North Carolina in 1977. Fries, shakes, atmosphere is wonderful, LOVE the music. Quick eats, reasonable price...NOT CORPORATE! Staff is friendly and very competent. YUM!

Decided to try Johnnie's Dog house after seeing good reviews for it. I was impressed by the variety of dogs they offered, but my quest is for one in particular. Something like what I grew up with, so I had to go with the Michigan dog which is basically a chili dog. Theirs was pretty good, I must admit, but... More

Johnnies' has somehow mastered the art of fried chicken AND gourmet hot dogs. I had the chicken there today for the first time, and I would put it in the top 4 chicken places I've visited (the others are in Charleston, SC, Florida, and, strangely, Nagoya, Japan, with plenty of mediocre one's throughout the country). The chicken is amazingly moist,... More

This place has been around for some time as an elaborate hot dog eatery - many, many choices and variations, but its newest addition is its fried chicken, which is now clearly the best in the Wilmington area barring none. Crispy, yet tenderly moist. Absolutely delicious. Very friendly service and takeout. Good choice of tasty and adequate sides. Totally mouth-watering.
