Lived around here all my life, Johnny's has always had the best hotdogs around, the owners are such wonderful people, and they make the restaurant a great place to hang out with family and friends.

If you like sauce and all the fixing on your hot dogs, you will love Johnny's. They have hamburgers, chicken fingers, amazing milkshakes, texas fries and homemade rice pudding! I recommend a visit to this family owned diner.

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.
