good food for a good price – if you live in arizona, you've been to bill johnson's! it speaks for itself. great restaurant! one of my favorites! tons of history behind it!
GREAT FOOD AND SERVICE! – I continuosly go back to this restaurant and receive the most wonderful service! The steaks are great! Try the 9oz Sirloin, medium, it's absolutely delicious! All the dinners come with a bunch of sides that will keep the hunger monster away! The zucchini and onion rings are to die for & for dessert, Personal Sized Deep Dish Pie in various flavors (I love them all!) that is fantastic!
Shouldn't be on a list for BBQ – I'm really surprised Bill Johnsons came up on a list of good BBQ spots in Phoenix. I had the babyback ribs and the sauce was no more than spiced up tomato sauce. If you want good BBQ go to a place that specializes in it!!!
It fits the bill – I first tried their sauce bottled in another local store, and didn't like it so it took me a long time to visit Bill Johnson's. While I didn't particularly like the overcooked brisket, my wife had a steak and said it was better than most, espcially for the price. So, while this place is nothing to write home about, I would go there again.
Coffeeshop Que! – This menu is most aptly described as "coffeeshop-que". The beef on the bbq beef sandwiches taste like pre-prepped Denny's fare. Which is also true of several other menu items including the chicken that we tried. Burgers and greasy and overcooked. I could be wrong but all food I have tried there is pre-prepped and from cans and boxes as opposed to scratch cooking. Server was poorly trained although the Litchfield Park location was relatively new. Atmosphere is okay and with the sawdust style floor reminds me of a California-based BBQ chain as I was growing up there in the early 70's.
