Location: Johnson Barbecue –Plant City, Florida
Date of Visit: 06/18/2019
Welcome to Florida Stuffed! June 2019 is continuing with a stop to a barbecue restaurant. This is the first place to be featured from Plant City, Florida. I am hoping to return to the area in the future to bring you more places to eat. The topic is barbecue and Johnson Barbecue delivers.
This is a popular spot among the locals and this place was recommended to me by a couple of friends in the area. This is a busy but comfortable place to eat. You get plenty of menu options and you can eat here on a budget as well. Very satisfied overall with service, food quality and the friendly staff. As a first time customer, it is nice to feel welcomed when I visit for the first time. Atmosphere is great for families or groups. You will also like my recap of the food…
Accessibility: Johnson Barbecue is located near the intersection of West Dr Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard and South Alexander Street in Plant City, Florida. Traffic in the area was moderate at the time of my arrival, approximately 630PM. Parking was a little crowded but I found a space quickly.
Customer Service: I was greeted and seated upon entry. My server was very nice and helpful in telling me of some of the options and specials on the menu. She checked on me a few times during my visit. My order came out in approximately ten minutes. The staff overall was friendly as well.
Dating Scene: If you or your date are hungry and in the mood for barbecue, this is one place I would suggest. Seating arrangements are comfortable for couples or groups.
Lets Get to the Menu: I was a little more reserved here than I am usually when I go to a barbecue spot. No three or four meat combos this time! On this visit, I ordered their Smoked Sausage. This dish may have seemed simplistic but it was great. I would enjoy this ten times over again. It features two sausage links (cut thin) with grilled onions and a side of brown mustard. I selected fried okra and apple coleslaw. The sausage had a mild flavor, with a nice hint of smoke, and the onions were an excellent touch. As a sausage lover, this passed the test. The side items require mentioning. I enjoyed both the okra and apple coleslaw. The apple coleslaw was sweet and creamy as I prefer it to be. I also ordered their banana pudding. Great dessert, very smooth pudding with whipped cream on top. Along with my fountain drink, my order came to $18.52 before tip. On the menu, you will find ribs, chicken, wings, turkey, pork, burgers, sandwiches, brisket and more. I would suggest a couple budget between $25-$40 here. This place caters as well.
