The food is good, but if you come with an appetite, you better be prepared to order double and pay double; which isn't cheap. It isn't over-the-top expensive either, it is what I would call a little high, but not outrageous. The restaurant itself is...More

My husband &I had lunch there today. We both got the pork platter and a pork family meal for some friends of ours in the hospital. The pork was as lackluster as it gets. The pork was dry and no smoke flavor what so ever!...More

This is a simple, no frills barbecue restaurant heading out of Gainesville. Food is good but nothing spectacular, it's a plain place with good barbecue. Excellent banana pudding.

Met far off friends here for lunch. Food was served fast, was very tasty. The BBQ was very good and choice of several regional sauces was available. The banana pudding was awesome.

Johnny's has excellent barbecue with a variety of sauces, the slaw is excellent too. The cost is fair and the portions are good. If your in a mood for barbecue, Johnny's is the place to be.

I always get the lunch pulled pork sandwich meal. The fries are consistently hot & crispy. They have the "good" ice for their drinks. (Perfect for crunching!) I recommend getting a large tea & extra sauce for your sandwich.
