Father-son partners Johnny and Josh Bratton established Johnny’s Steaks & Bar-Be-Que on March 25, 2002. Johnny has been involved in the restaurant industry since 1980. He established Johnny’s Texas Style Bar-Be-Que in 1992 in Killeen, Texas. After running both for a year, Johnny sold the Killeen establishment to focus all his efforts towards Salado. Josh grew up in the restaurant industry and is the first to tell you it is definitely in his blood. Both Johnny and Josh graduated from Texas A&M University, class of ’70 and ’01 respectively. We take pride in being a family run business. From moms to wives, and siblings to in-laws, everybody helps in making Johnny’s what it is today.
From the time you step in our establishment, we hope you gather an understanding for what Texas is truly about. With Aggie flags and antlers decorating the ceiling to the signatures on the wall to the bumper stickers on the door, we surround you with bits and pieces of Texas. We prides ourselves on fresh, cooked to order food and southern hospitality. Johnny’s girls certainly know how to make you feel at home. We specialize in Mesquite Grilled Steaks and Texas Pit BBQ. Our steaks are hand cut and cooked to order. Johnny cuts ’em and Josh grills ’em. Our BBQ is cooked fresh daily and served with all the trimmings. From homemade hamburgers to Friday night catfish, we aim to fill every appetite we meet. Next time you pass through Salado, be sure to stop by and see us.
We also provide full service catering with a wide array of menu items from BBQ to Mesquite Grilled Steaks. On site catering is always available or you can check out Johnny’s Texas Banquet Hall for your next event. With its Texas decor and party deck, everyone is sure to have a great time. So when you’re in that party mood, give us a call, ’cause no one can throw one like us.
