My wife and I had a foot long hotdog and a burger. Really lovely quality and we sat outside in the sunshine on their roof terrace. Really good value too and a great snack meal.

Enjoy!

I'm Portuguese and just had to try a cup of the Portuguese Rice. A bit spicy but well worth trying it....

After whale watching I was hungry mid-afternoon so popped along here for a hot dog. It was ready quickly, tasty and very good value. I sat on a bench nearby to eat it. Watch out for slightly different opening times away from peak season - we were going to have an evening snack here but it was firmly shut by 8am midweek in mid September.

John's great Footlong Hot Dog sticks out of both ends of its regular-sized bun. It's been cooked on the griddle, which gives it a richer flavor, and that bun has been split open and griddled as well. Add your own condiments like mustard, ketchup, sweet relish, dill pickles or chopped onion: ask for mayo at the counter.
Burger is average sort of 1/4 pound burger except it's made fresh, cooked just when you order it, but you won't wait long. Be sure to ask for lettuce and tomato if you want them, for 50¢ extra. Ad bacon, cheese or both. If you like thin, crispy fries these are quite good, but be careful. They're very hot, again, made just for you.
Portuguese Kale Soup is about the best in town, so try it. Portuguese rice is offered, too.
Anything fried is a generous serving of exceptional quality. Fried clams are legendary. The shrimp roll is great, too, as is Fish & Chips, but I think my favorite is the Scallop Roll.
Fish sandwich is piled high for a very reasonable price. The lobster roll is among the very best in town. Clam Chowder is also hearty, with plenty of clams.
Grilled cheese is very basic, perfect for finicky kids who may not want seafood.
The smoothy is more like a slushy, fine if that's what you want. For a real fruit smoothy, step across the street to The Coffee Pot. Fried dough is an old family recipe, but the best in town is just around the corner, at the Provincetown Portuguese Bakery. Most everything else at John's is among PTown's very best.
Best of all, during the day you're served by charming Portuguese grandmothers who've been at it for about 30 years. Service in the evening is equally friendly, and genuinely helpful if you're new here.
John's is highly recommended for most anything they offer.
