I love this place because the food is always good. The service may not be the best, but the food makes up for it. Anytime I go through Cullman, I always make a point of stopping at Johnny's.

The chicken sandwiches were great, pork was even better, I had the 1/2 chicken which was amazing, the smoke flavor was great and the skin still was whole and had the snap when you bit into it!
