They had awesome service and the food was spectacular. My wife found the red sauce a bit spicy but it was perfect to me! I highly recommend it.

Friend raved about the Green Chile.... tried it while traveling thru town, it was nothing special, very disappointed. Service was kinda bad also. El Rialto here in Las Vegas is MUCH better. Won't be back.... Ever.

The red was soupy and could 'splatter' like water. Not sure if they just had an off day, but wasn't good. They do have a breakfast special for 4.99 that is basic but good.

Johnny's was easy to find, offered parking, and at 4 p.m. On a Sunday afternoon was enjoying a lull. We were greeted warmly. Menu is huge; but we settled on the enchiladas and huevos rancheros. Both plates were packed with extras; beans, posole, and we...More
