Johnnies' has somehow mastered the art of fried chicken AND gourmet hot dogs. I had the chicken there today for the first time, and I would put it in the top 4 chicken places I've visited (the others are in Charleston, SC, Florida, and, strangely,...More

This place has been around for some time as an elaborate hot dog eatery - many, many choices and variations, but its newest addition is its fried chicken, which is now clearly the best in the Wilmington area barring none. Crispy, yet tenderly moist. Absolutely...More

Always a hit with all 7 family members with very diverse appetites. Love the bean pie! Friendly, clean, fun place to eat.

This place is an institution. You name a dog and they have it. I've worked my way through about half of them. The owner is there most of the time and he is really nice. Well worth the trip

When they first came about, I thought it was a cool place to eat. It still is if your wallet is prepared. It's pricey food for grocery store hot dogs. Go to costcos to get a 1/4 pound hot dog for $1.50 + a drink.

I grew up in Coney Island, Brooklyn, NY and always remember the taste of fresh sauerkraut and beef hot dogs. Eating them captured my mind and senses into adulthood and i've searched for the "perfect Coney Island dog" and Johnnie's Dog House gets the gold...More

Surprising number of choices - in addition to plain, chili, sauerkraut ... you can get a kobe beef Frank, Hawaiian (pineapple and chips) or a bunch of others. I had the sausage & peppers, which was very good. My wife had the Texas (fried with...More
