This restaurant is a repurpose gas station that was flooded during Sandy located on Rt. 35 a block off the beach. The high water mark is painted on the wall and was over my head. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The menu is typical Jersey shore food. We went for lunch. They have sausage sandwiches, steak sandwiches, burgers, hot... More

Great, very casual place. Good for kids and families. Johnny believes that, if there is time to lean, there is time to clean. Owner is present most of the time. He chooses great, fresh ingredients and charges a fair price. I highly recommend it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Outside seating as well as inside. Best bets are the cheesesteak... More

My husband's family used to own this building, so for me, it's fun to visit it as a french fry place. The food is awesomely greasy and good. You'll eat too much, and have to swim the rest of the day (after your half hour rest) to work off the fat. It's small, but very clean and the staff is... More

We stay at the Starlight Motel every year and this is right across the street. The offer breakfast, lunch and dinner. They do have the best fries. Egg sandwiches are good too. There is a good variety for all. Its a nice quick stop to and from the beach. Service is good too. Kohr's ice cream is next door.

This year was our first time trying Johnny Fries. Oh my goodness - Disco Fries to die for! Loved their onion rings too! They deliver and I heard they deliver to the beach? Will have to try that next year.

Had a nice relaxing lunch sitting out on a picnic table. The staff is very good always smiling and friendly. The food may seem a little more pricier but the quality makes up for the little extra. The hot dogs are the best (Thummans) and the burgers are John's mix, veal and beef, delicious. Johnny's believes in using the best... More

Nice place, friendly staff and more importantly, good food. Burgers, dogs and fries very good. Also had a cheese steak once that was very tasty. A little expensive for this type of food but overall a good place to eat
