This is somewhat a difficult review. The restaurant is in an older strip mall with a large parking lot serving other businesses. The disabled parking is more centrally located for multiple establishments. They are good parking spaces with loading zones but not close enough to Johnnie's to serve the right purpose. And there are no signs just painted spaces. You also have to cross a traffic lane to get to the ramp. After meeting the well-built ramp, you travel a little ways to either face the to-go door or the front door next to the exit door. I entered the front.

There is then an area with a news rack and another entry door. There was enough room here and the doors were ok to open. In the usual Johnnie's tradition, customers are corralled in a corridor along the side of the restaurant to get to the ordering counter. The counter is too high for a person in a wheelchair; bring a clipboard if you need to sign something. You then face the large seating area lined with booths with a few tables in open areas. In the middle is the drink station. This area is large and has many paths but seemed wide enough to accommodate most assistive devices.

If you have need of a restroom, it can get a bit difficult. After navigating the many paths and dividers, you reach an opening in the wall that has the restrooms on either side. The men's is to the right in a very short hallway. The door is the width of this area and swings out. This hallway is just long enough to get into and not be able to turn around, then meet the door and not be able to open it into yourself. I'm sure there is a technique that allows a person with a walker or in a chair to both grab a door handle and move backwards at the same time, but I am not familiar with it. So you might need someone to open the door for you. Once inside, everything is fairly accessible with the possible exception of a maybe a slightly too narrow stall. I don't think I'd have a problem, but some certainly would. There are handrails on either side of the stall and the sink, soap, and towels are reachable.

Overall, this older restaurant is accessible enough to eat at with some difficulties. They could certainly make improvements but a pleasant meal can be accomplished with some preparedness. If you have a craving for a Theta buger and don't have any reason to navigate obstacles to dine in this particular restaurant, the Johnnie's Express up May a couple miles has every accessibility option to meet your needs.
