Johnson's Corner

2842 SE Frontage Road Johnstown, CO 80534 | Northern Colorado | 970-667-2069

Location Description:

Over the fifty years that Johnson's Corner has been in business, it's collected accolades of a variety that most restaurants don't even dream about. Its name was read into the 106th Congressional Record as an example of "the industrious spirit and can-do attitude that have made America great." The Food Network dubbed it one of the top five truck stops in the country. And in 1998, it was picked as one of the best breakfast spots in the world by Travel & Leisure. We don't disagree.
