I have been enjoying fabulous meals at Johnny Harris' for over 40 years. I put their BBQ sauce on everything but ice cream! And I have enjoyed many of the fun facts and stories about the early days of this wonderful restaurant. After ordering the cookbook, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that many of those stories were indeed true. Plus there were many new facts and stories that I had never heard. 5+ stars in my opinion!
