“An Area Tradition With Simple Hot Dogs”

My wife has been talking about this place for many years with fond memories growing up nearby. So we took the short drive Saturday afternoon to check it out. The place is a hot dog stand with outdoor seating (no indoor anything) and a very limited menu of hot dogs, french fries and soft drinks (including something called Birch Beer - which tasted like root beer mixed with cherry soda). The place is obviously legend to New Jersey folk as there were at least 80 cars and motorcycles in the parking lot. We waited in a short line to order a rather ordinary hot dog. It was enjoyable and I would recommend the place if it happens to be near where you are going on route 46 in NJ.

Johnny's has to have the best hot dogs this side of the Mississippi. At lunch time it can be hard to find a place to park, they are that good. On nice days it is so relaxing to sit in your car and watch the gently flowing water and wildlife while enjoying fresh buttermilk and a dog with the works. This is truly a local treasure.

Get in line to wait but service is quick and the hotdogs are delicious. Try the ice cold in frosted mug birch beer, you'll go back for seconds! and it's open year round.

This is a tiny place right off Rt. 46 that has been there for years. The dining inside is small but there are picnic tables outside. You can eat in your car as well. These hot dogs are the best we've ever eaten. We miss Johnny's now that we're in FL but everytime we're in Jersey that stop is a must, in fact, one day we ate there twice the same day!! The dogs are cooked in peanut oil and that gives them the awesome taste. The fries are awesome as well as the shakes. They are known for their root beer in frosted mugs. There's always a crowd in line day or night but the line goes quickly. It's a definite must for locals as well as the passers through on their way to the Poconos.
