Johnson’s Corner

Review by: Jane & Michael Stern

Johnson’s Corner is famous for its cinnamon roll, a heroically sized piece of pastry that fills out a dinner plate. It arrives warm and smothered with sweet, white icing, accompanied by buttery spread. It’s definitely maximum calories for minimum cash, but it does tend to get a little monotonous after you’ve ingested the first half-pound of dough. For a more balanced rib-sticking breakfast, you won’t go wrong with chicken-fried steak, here served with all the suitable complements: eggs as you like them, a large patty of crisp-fried hash browns, a biscuit (nondescript) and, of course, plenty of thick cream gravy.

In addition to all the usual breakfast items, Johnson’s Corner menu offers buffalo sausage and burritos. For lunch, supper, and any time around the clock, you can order a pot roast dinner, a hot turkey sandwich, steaks, pork chops, or burgers. A full-service soda fountain offers shakes, floats, malts, and one heck of a handsome banana split.

A truck drivers’ haven since 1952, Johnson’s Corner is a full-service highway oasis including fuel pumps, convenience store, truckers’ showers, and an adjoining chapel featuring regular services geared towards travelin’ men and women. Recently remodeled, the dining area offers hugely spacious booths and counter service. For travelers who want to stay connected, it is Wi-Fi hot spot.
