I went to school in Clarksville, like so many other reviewers here. Returning to Johnny's after being gone for over twenty years was an amazing treat. Nothing has changed! The restaurant still boasts liberal bar seating and just a few, sit-down tables. The owners continue...More

Had lunch here today. I've lived here 5 years and this was my first time, so I was excited to say the least. I had the double bacon burger with a fried egg. It was HUGE! I couldn't wait to try and bite into it....More

Went here with a local buddy that said you come to Clarksville you must eat here! Kickass burger but bring cash. It’s cash only but so worth the inconvenience. Definitely would eat here again.

This is an absolute must! It's an old fashioned grill and you can taste the love put into cooking the food. By far the best burger I've had in along time!

Best place to grab a bite and enjoy a down home old fashion burger and pizza. It's close to the river downtown and easy to get to. It's been in business for decades and the prices are reasonable. Place is clean and people are very...More

Very simple menu. Inexpensive. Cooked to order burger with fresh beef. Better and cheaper than most fast food but this was table service. Good reason it has been around forever.

A longtime establishment in Clarksville, you cannot go wrong getting a great hamburger here. But bring cash, or use the ATM by the counter. They also have other sandwiches and desserts. It's all good!

We aim to do one thing at Johnny's Big Burger. That's to make the best burgers and fries in town. We were established in 1965, which was a totally different era. People took pride in their work and they worked hard with honor for what they earned. Things were affordable. People cared about what they produced. This principle is still alive at Johnny's. We work hard, so that you can have the best. We are proud of this tradition. We have our meat delivered every day. It's fresh ground and you can taste the difference. We NEVER serve meat that has been frozen. It's always fresh and made to order.
