This place has been around for many years and their food I still great. I normally stick to the cheese enchiladas which are phenomenal! My boyfriend lives their carne guisada. The chips and salsa are also great. If you try the green salsa, warning it's hot..at least for me it is.

We went here because it was close to the hotel we were staying at and didn't want to venture downtown. We have had LOTS of Tex/Mex/Mexican food over the years and this was horrible. I ordered the chicken mole and it was canned or bottled mole sauce drowning some shredded chicken. It was almost inedible. I was hungry so ate... More

Had lunch with a co-worker. Food and service is good & you won't leave hungry. Bathroom needs work and good supply of paper towels. I still would go back for lunch in the future!

Great Tex-Mex; Great service; Hole-in-the-wall place ... Not the cleanest place and oh, don't use the restrooms; however, the food is so good... You've got to eat here whenever you are in the neighborhood! Get the "Johnny's special plate" or the "Super Johnny's special plate". The salsa and the flour tortillas are possibly the best in town. The menudo is... More

I used to love Johnny's, but unfortunately this place has gone downhill in recent months. They have some amazing lemonade, but that's all the positives I can say at the moment. The tacos are relatively small, but they are priced right. The flour tortillas are fine, but the quality of what's going inside them has gone down. My eggs have... More
