Always enjoy having a lunch at Johnnie's. The burgers are grilled well and large. Plenty of fresh lettuce and tomatoes, lots of cheese, and flavored with a super unique sauce that's only found at this great place. The fresh cut fries and onion rings cannot be beat. Actually the best onion rings ever are only found here. Look forward to... More

My wife and I went here on a recent visit. She really wanted to take me here. I had the #9 cheeseburger and she had a veggie burger. We shared an order of onion rings. The onion rings were fantastic. The burgers were strictly average.

Having been born and raised in Oklahoma City, Johnnie's has always been a 'staple'. Johnnie's, the old Split-T, Holloway's and Charcoal Oven were always the place to eat burgers. The Split-T and Holloway's have been closed now for years. But a lot of the old Split-T recipes originated with the Deloris Café (also closed) but they are alive and well... More

This used to be a great place to meet and eat, but seems to have gone down hill. I have't been there in a few years so my friends talked us into trying it again. The burgers are just OK, but I've never liked their grated cheese on their cheeseburgers. They put way too much cheese on it. I also... More

We love Johnnie's and make at least one visit every time we're in Oklahoma City. My wife and I love the chili cheese burger (#3) and the onion rings are the best anywhere!

The restaurant looked crowded but the order line went quickly. I already had a hamburger that day so I ordered the spinach strawberry salad. It was very good! My daughter had the hamburger and fries and she enjoyed it. We also split a piece of chocolate cream pie. It was good as well and more than enough for two people.... More

I have tried much of everything on the menu and still go back to the chili burger with onion rings. But I can recommend the salads and the pies as well.

I went to Johnny's today for the first time ever. I passed by it almost 30 years and never have eaten there and finally live with my parents today. I've been in the restaurant industry for over 25 years. and I will say that is the worst hamburger I've ever had. It was literally an edible. the sauce on the... More

I saw the reviews on tripadvisor and had to give this place a try! Burger was great! Fries weren't bad. Wasn't expecting it to be cafeteria style ordering so that caught me off guard, but I would definitely go back again. Nothing fancy about this place, your basic great tasting burgers!
