Apparently hot dog Johnny's is an iconic establishment. My wife and I I made A point of stopping there on our way to Scranton. I have heard about this place from a number of people who rave about it. I for one was extremely disappointed. The place is nothing more than a hotdog stand on the side of the road.... More

One would think a hot dog stand on the side of a well traveled highway that is always crowded must be THE place to go. Unfortunately Hot Dog Johnnys was a disappointment. I was most taken back by the dry, average hot dogs as well as the minimal toppings available. Again, seeing the long lines I fell into the human... More

Great hot dogs with relish and root beer. Not sure what they do, but I never had such a tasty hot dog!

My wife and I were driving along Route 46 by the Delaware River Gap and saw Hot Dog Johnny's with a long line and lots of cars parked. We said to ourselves this must be a good place to stop. The place keeps it's old 1950's-60's charm in appearance, but that is where everything stops. There is no menu to... More

Fun place - no frills. Just dogs, fries and drinks. They are always busy but the wait is worth it. A must have.

I was looking forward to trying the food here, but should have known better. I asked if they had a menu, to which the counter person rolled his eyes and said we have hot dogs. Obviously an MIT graduate. After shelling out 9 bucks for 2 dogs, fries and a Coke, found the fries hard and overly salted. The hot... More

If you really like hot dogs, and I do, Johnny's is a "must visit" location. Located on the scenic and wild Pequest river in northwestern New Jersey, Johnny's unique style hot dogs, quick cooked in peanut oil, are first class. In addition to best dogs in the area, Johnny's French fries are legendary, as it their fresh butter milk and... More

An institution in this area, always enjoy sitting enjoying my dog and fries by the river! My only wish would be sauerkraut for my dog!

My husband just had to pull over and relive his childhood while we drove through the area this weekend. So we jumped out for a dog and a birch beer at this "been there forever" hot dog drive-in. It was packed, even on a freezing day. Not one table was open. So we ordered a birch beer and a few... More

These hot dogs are boiled and tasteless. The only sides you can get are chips or fries. They really need to expand their menu a bit, and maybe offered a grilled hot dog. My church goes on outings here all of the time, and I really just don't get why they love it so much. It's just a cheap, pruny... More
