Best Pizza..... really!! – Johnny's on Cheshire Bridge has been a fixture on this street for over 30 years, and it still serves the best pizza in town! I've eaten at many other Johnny's pizzas, but this one has the best pizza. My family loves to eat there. The kids even eat the crust that they usually leave from other restaurants. The crust is hand tossed. You can actually watch your pizza being cooked in front of you, so you know it's fresh. The wait staff makes you feel like you're family. I'd recommend this place to anyone, and I usually do!
Does anyone in Atlanta make decent pizza? – I like that this is kind of a dive-y place to grab a slice, but truly the pizza is sub-par, like almost everywhere in Atlanta. Droopy dough with tastless canned sauce and just OK cheese. Seems to do a brisk business...I guess because there arent a lot of options in the area.
Won't be open long. – we live around the corner from this place and waited patiently for them to open. then we waited patiently for them to get their beer and wine license... for 2 months. when they could finally serve beer i couldnt get any of my favorites because they aparently dont serve budweiser products. why? i gleamed from a server that the owners/managers/whoever aparently had some personal spat with the rep and now they are boycotting them altogether. really? we all have to suffer because you cant be grown up to do business?
on top of this, they aparently deliver now, but to our apartment complex around the corner? no why? i dont know. the person on the phone just said it had something to do with security. whatever that means.
if it weren for these things, me and my family might still eat there. the pizza is decent and the service, when available has been good. its really a shame that this place seems to be under the operation of nimrods because it could have had potential. however, i think its probably a sinking ship and i'll just keep eating at felini's on howell mill until a better place opens where this johnny's used to be.
Not the worst I've ever had, but a close second – Soggy pizza that is essentially a slab of bread with a pound of cheese piled in the middle. The large cheese pizza I picked up was coated on the bottom with the charred remnants of the previous fifteen pizza's. I was starving so I had to eat one slice. The remainder went into the trash.
Good Solid Pizza Joint – This Johnny's may be small, but that gives it terrific character. For me this will always be the best Johnny's Pizza in Atlanta. There are a few Johnny's around today but none are better or more Atlanta than this location. I know the sign may say New York pizza, but this is Atlanta pizza and it is unsurpassed.
Pizza – A true hole in the wall, but good pizza. Dress up to much, and you might feel like a bill collector in the middle of a dead beat convenation. Dine in or take out. Eat it up!
One star in the Johnny's franchise universe, this laid-back pizzeria serves thick layers of toppings on a thin, crisp crust. – In Short
College kids, families and the ultra-casual found here. Decor and service are bare-bones. Separating Johnny's from the slice next door is a crisp, thin crust and thick layers of fresh toppings. The juicy vegetarian version is piled with spinach, onions, mushrooms, black olives and slabs of tomato; green olives add a nice zing. Tasty subs are a steal at under $5. Other Italian-American items like spaghetti and eggplant parmesan round out the menu.
Best pizza in Atlanta, for real. – I'm originally from Chicago so when I moved to ATL I was on the prowl for some good pizza. So far this Johnny's has been the best! While the place may look like a hole in the wall...the pizza is awesome. I recommend trying one with feta and banana peppers! The prices are awesome! I've also tried the subs which are tasty, and they are huge for the price you pay. I've tried other Johnny's pizzas, but for some reason this one remains the best! If you are looking for some really good pizza, check this place out!
