REAL MICHIGAN BBQ

APPLE  •  CHERRY  •  HICKORY

Welcome to Johnny V’s! We’re so glad you’re here! If you’ve been with us before, you know what to expect. If you haven’t, your Real MI BBQ experience starts now! We start with locally sourced woods; apple, cherry, and hickory from local farms right here in Michigan. As Traverse City is the cherry capital of the world and Kevin’s hometown, we infuse cherry fruit into our signature sauces. We love to showcase Michigan products whenever possible.

OUR GUESTS LOVE JOHNNY V’S!

Amazing food, great service! The burnt ends and fried mushrooms were awesome and the ribs were fall apart tender.  I’ll will definitely be back and can’t wait until my next visit.

Jennie Nunham, Grand Blanc

Best. Food. Ever. From the smoked ribs-Mac n cheese-burnt ends-fresh salads. It’s all delicious!!!! The staff is friendly, even the owner (Kevin) comes out to check on you! 

Tamara Kirk, Laingsburg

Very friendly staff. The owner is out on the floor greeting and conversing with all customers. The bread pudding is a must have! It’s worth the drive.  Great food
