I had the 2 plate combo of brisket and sausage. Both were pretty good, but a little cold. The brisket is a thick slice and has some nice edge charring with the nice red line. The beans were ok, I've had better and the potato salad was a bit better than average. Service was good, and both waitress were friendly... More

Very good brisket. Sausage was decent. I like a sweeter sauce. Good portions. Great fries and slaw. Definitely will come back.

I've had my share of BBQ..So I decided to try the steak,--ribeye. It had a good flavor, but was thin. The cheese waffle fries were very good.. The dirty martinis were good, but very expensive..$21 for 2!( that's more than Saltgrass charges!) Our waitress was friendly but didn't check on us very often. The best part was getting to sit...

Now that the road construction is getting completed and it is easier to get to Johnny's is a restaurant that you want to try when in Salado. Steaks are great.

OMG...the best sausage I've ever had! The brisket was smoky and just the way I like it. We were at a wedding that Saturday night and I ordered 25 breakfast tacos Sunday morning for the family clean up. I never had Johnnie's breakfast tacos before. They were amazing!

My husband and I have stopped here before for steaks on our way from Dallas to Austin. The steaks are excellent. This time we tried the chicken fried steak. Comes in 2 different sizes - one for smaller appetite and the larger portion. The meat was tender, the coating crunchy and the gravy perfectly seasoned. I love the fact that... More

Very expensive and a big disappointment ,The waitress filled ice glasses and told... More
