I thought I may have mentioned this place before, but it appears as though I haven’t. Johnny’s Hots is a little sausage stand on Columbus Blvd across from Penn Treaty Park. Lately, I’ve been stopping by for lunch on the way to pick Madeline up from school in Fishtown.
For $3.50, you get a perfectly lunch sized sausage sandwich, and the quickest service you could possibly imagine. Seriously, your food will come out before you’ve even finished paying. It’s somewhere between a hot dog and a hoagie in size, which is a perfect lunch size. You won’t be stuffed, but you won’t be hungry. I’m a sucker for sausage, and anything hot*, so there is really no way I couldn’t love this place. But their hot sausage is really great, and so are the rolls.
And this morning I discovered their breakfast sandwich(s). Give me a couple more before I close the book, but after just one, I’m ready to declare it the best breakfast sandwich in the city. Fried egg, American cheese, and a hot sausage. Its mind-blowing. Honestly.
