My brother and I were in Jamestown for a week tending to family business. While there we decided to hit some of the old spots. Johnny’s hot dogs, sauce and buns are a constant, and I was instantly transported back to the 60’s late at...More

This is the place that all of the people come back to when they come back home to the Jamestown area. Greats dogs and hamburgers with Johnny's sauce! Loaded fries are great also

A wonderful location for a one of a kind bite to eat. You smell the sauce's ingredients as soon as you hit the door. Their milkshakes and fries are great too. If you are not from the area, look into this step back in history...More

You always know what is on the menu, it never changes. Food is good, dinning area is clean, staff is friendly and efficient. The only downside is the fact they do not accept credit/debit, but they do have an ATM located on premises.

What's not to love about this traditional and flavorful eating establishment? Everyone's favorite dog, burger or shake. Of course they are quick to serve you if you are in a hurry or just hungry. When family or friends come to visit from out of town,...More

I read lots of reviews about it being a friendly place but not so much when we went. The service wasn't even close to being friendly. The Hot Dogs were okay, the fries and shakes were tasty though - which is why I still gave...More

Can't believe Johnny's would not be listed. This lunchonette has been around for 70 years I believe. They have served millions and millions of Hot Dogs, with their special sauce. A counterpart luncheonette, AJ's Texas Hots in Jamestown is listed.
