Was looking for a homemade burger and gave it a try. Staff were friendly burgers were fantastic. They even have lamb burgers! It seems more patrons love the pitas but also lots of people love the creative poutines. Decide is vibrant and clean but perhaps needs a small facelift. I think we will come back and try some more different... More

Had lunch here for the first time (new resident of waterloo) and enjoyed the ultimate poutine and a great chicken pita. Quality of food is good, price is affordable and its is so tasty! Place is clean, lots of staff on hand. Will keep going back as it's down the street from my new home....excited.

Been going here since it opened. Hands down best pitas. I always get gyro with fries in it! The orange cake dessert is the bomb!

We dine here just about every two weeks. Since we are local, we are able to use Johnny Freshco's coupons. Busy spot with a lot of university students doing take-out. We like to eat in. Bright and cheery with a friendly efficient staff. Many, many choices on their menu.

If you come here you need to be really hungry. Portions are a good size. The Chili cheese fries are delicious. Burgers and pitas are good too. Service is not super fast but it is worth the wait.

This place has made me miss being a student. I would get a pita or burger from Johnny Fresco once a week and every single time my food was delicious! I miss living so close to such a gem!

Johnny Fresco is one of the best places to eat in Waterloo. I've been going there for seven years, and in the past two years, they have gotten much busier because people now know it exists. Family-owned - and it shows. The owner is always there working with his crew. They make the food fast, but they make it good... More

We ordered two burgers with fries. The food was rather bland, the bun seemed stale as it fell apart quite easy while eating it. The lettuce was browning. The fries were barely crisp and sagged as you picked them up to eat them. The owner confronted a couple ahead of us to pay the extra cost between a canned pop... More
