We went to Grandpa Johnson's BBQ with some family for lunch. We enjoyed the food immensely and the giant cups of southern sweet tea. The service was very good. If you want a good local place to visit, Grandpa Johnson's BBQ is definitely a good place to stop!

It is a great place to take someone from Tampa who is looking for a Plant City experience. Food is good down home cooking. Service is fast and good.

Being in Lakeland visiting friends, we asked at the Hampton Inn for the best BBQ place around. We were directed to Johnsons on ML King by the Farmers Market. Goodness knows: large crowd, burning wood, lots of meat and wonderful sides. We ordered pulled pork, brisket and ribs. All were wonderfully prepared, tender, flavorful and served with a variety of sauces. Jalapeño mac and cheese was wonderful per the wife as were the apply slaw and beans that I had. The wait staff was friendly and attentive and easily answered questions about the restaurant, their BBQ preparation methods, etc. Totally satisfying meal with hearty portions of outstanding food. Will eagerly eat there again if in the area.

Excellent barbecue made like grandpa himself made it. The smells from the door lure you in and want you to eat NOW! Bought a bottle of barbecue sauce for us as well. A well deserved stop in Plant City.
