Johnny’s was also one of the first restaurants to re-open in the city of New Orleans after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Even after the catastrophe, the excellence continues on.
We went at lunch time and it was super busy. If you can, try to find a table in the front room, the atmosphere is way better than the room in the back, which was a little dingy. The food was nothing to rave about, pretty bland, and pretty overpriced for what it was.
A tad on the pricier side but tracked down an oyster poboy here and it was glorious. You'll probably see a long line, but they're actually pretty good about moving through that and getting the food to you. Plenty of seating options and good food!
