Johnnie Brown's in Delray: Cheap Prices, Huge Portions
Many a beer-guzzling barbecue fan mourned the loss of Elwood's Dixie Bar-B-Q in Delray Beach when it closed last year. But picking up right where it left off is Johnnie Brown's, a burger and 'cue joint named after famous Floridian Addison Mizner's pet monkey.
There, the live music isn't quite as loud as it was at Elwood's – this place has more polish, after all, with new high-top tables and a re-done, retro décor. But the booze flows just as freely, with a solid beer selection, including plenty of draft options.
To soak it all up, try JB's fab pulled-pork sandwich, complete with smoky pork, a sweet sesame bun, and a side of meat-filled baked beans. The burgers are messy and overloaded (just how Johnnie liked 'em), and the wings are gussied up with a plethora of cool sauces and spices like ancho bourbon and Cajun dry rub.
Johnnie Brown's 301 E. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach. Open for lunch and dinner 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. Call 561-243-9911, or click here.
Prices are also dirt cheap, and the portions are huge, making Johnnie Brown's a perfect place to waste away a lazy afternoon.
