Johnny Rebs'

“Johnny Rebs’ is the coolest place around, a slapped-together palace of catfish, hushpuppies and chicken fried steak, barbecue, Dixie Beer, lemonade served in Mason jars, all the salted goobers you can hold.”
The Los Angeles Times, Jonathon Gold
“It’s not just the down-home theme that sets Johnny Rebs’ apart from other good breakfast spots. The country cooking here comes straight from Southern recipes, and everything is made from scratch”
The Los Angeles Times, Karen Newell Young
“Johnny Rebs’ is like a transported Alabama roadhouse—a temple of boogie music, peanut shells and worn plywood floors that are sprinkled in spilled Dixie Beer.”
Los Angeles Magazine, Best of LA issue, Amanda Rudolph
“…our favorite BBQ for families—it has peanut shells on the floor, a crazy/wonderful rooftop waterfall and real cheap-chic charm.”
Orange Coast Magazine, Raves 2002 issue, Phyllis Ann Marshall and Susan Ballou
“I’ve never visited a genuine Southern roadhouse in South Carolina, Georgia or Texas. I suspect, however, that JOHNNY REBS’ SOUTHERN ROADHOUSE in Long Beach comes pretty close to the real thing.  Be sure to mention if you are celebrating a birthday. They’ll make a big fuss over you and help make it a special occasion.”

“Sitting on the screened-in porch at Johnny Rebs’ in Orange, I am transported to my youth”
The Orange County Register, Elizabeth Evans
“It’s not just the food that’s fabulous; the service is amazing, too, like something you’d find at a cheerful diner in Flea Hop, Alabama.”
OC Weekly, Kelly Von Hemert
“…and the hushpuppies are the very essence of crust and crunch, probably the best in all of Southern California and proof that at least when it comes to food, the South will definitely rise again.”
Alaska Airlines Magazine, Mark Stephenson
“Johnny Rebs’ has been hailed by critics as some of the best country fixin’s in the west—and with cause.”
Long Beach Grunion Gazette, Patti Bubb
“The rich flavor and inimitable character of the South aren't just mimicked at this beloved restaurant, they're transported. Family-style down-home dishes sizzle in the kitchen, like blackened filets of catfish, creole shrimp over cheddar-topped grits, Southern fried chicken, and of course, the slow-smoked BBQ pulled pork, ribs, and chicken.”
