Great dog and burger joint!! I haven't had a hotfdog with chili and coleslaw since we lived in North Carolina in 1977. Fries, shakes, atmosphere is wonderful, LOVE the music. Quick eats, reasonable price...NOT CORPORATE! Staff is friendly and very competent. YUM!

Decided to try Johnnie's Dog house after seeing good reviews for it. I was impressed by the variety of dogs they offered, but my quest is for one in particular. Something like what I grew up with, so I had to go with the Michigan dog which is basically a chili dog. Theirs was pretty good, I must admit, but... More

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, Nagoya, Japan, with plenty of mediocre one's throughout the country). The chicken is amazingly moist,... 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 delicious. Very friendly service and takeout. Good choice of tasty and adequate sides. Totally mouth-watering.

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

it was okay. I was glad I tried it but I would not go back as it was nothing special. The hotdogs and food were good.

We were driving through on our way to Arlington, VA, very hungry and happened upon Johnnie's ala trip advisor. So glad we stopped! We ordered a wisconsin dog, california dog, chicago dog, junkyard double dog, 2 shakes and fries. Aboslutely loved everything about the experience! You can't over appreciate a restaurant such as this that takes you back in time... More

The hot dogs are pretty good here. I had a chili dog, leaked in the bun but pretty good and a Chicago dog that was really good. A little pricey but overall we liked the hot dogs. They also have other food and the fries are real good also. I would go again.
