they recognize you you recognize that it’s just kind of like a holy place why is Johnson’s Chicago’s best it’s the
quality our Cod is North Atlantic cod it’s only the loin which is the nice
thick piece you may find something is good but you’ll never find any other
better the quality of the fish is really good it’s always fresh and it’s always
good and cooked perfect thank you are you cooking with me in the kitchen

with tomatoes lettuce and a Chicago staple Toronto bun fresh easy simple tap
a sock with our fries and then we eat Sofia the best the quality of their
product is very very good really nicely coated and has a good crunch to it very
fresh taste most of all I like the flaky texture sure beats the regular burger

  1. I've eaten supermarket-bought frozen cod sticks my whole life but DAMN that cod looks exceptional! The flakiness and size of the cod is just so mouth watering…

  2. Love this place been going here for over 30 years. Support local businesses!! This place is amazing and they have the best seafood.

  3. A very delicious sandwich 👍, A very beautiful place 👍,, A very very lovely video 👌👌👌 … Thank-you 💜💛 so much .. God bless America 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  4. That looks great! But that's not a seafood restaurant. Come to Louisiana (South) and you will find some of the best "Seafood Restaurants" in the country.

  5. I've been looking all over for this video! Our regulars always ask where the video is lol I've been working at Johnson's (Indiana) for two years and my mom for at least 15! Jerry and Dorothy are the most humble bosses you could ever imagine! It's not a job, it's a family.

  6. Everything looks perfect but I just prefer some sort of white sauce in my burger, apart from that seems to be a very great and homely establishment.
