Recently, I have ordered the Beef (dipped with peppers), Italian Sausage (dipped with peppers), and the Pepper and Egg Sandwich (the Lenten season)
Johnny's has been a familial staple for many years despite being a half hour drive (on a good day)... I've heard rumors that the stand has recently changed owners and with that change, the quailty of the food has taken a drastic turn for the worse.
The last beef I had was dry, even though it was requested to be "thoroughly saturated" - the sausage was spicy decent, although clearly it was not Italian sausage, plus the peppers tasted like they had been sitting on bananas for a week, adding this odd quality to already disappointing sandwiches; and lastly the pepper and egg (which is a seasonal delight, was undercooked, runny and unable to be eaten. The only salvageable content to any of the sandwiches was the "au jus" dipping juice... It pains me to make such terrible comments about a legendary beef stand, but they brought it upon themselves by tinkering with the recipes.
My family has established that it is no longer worth driving to Johnny's for beef, sausages or pepper and egg sandwiches, maybe you'd like to determine that on your own, but don't say that you weren't warned.
