    I was just there this past Saturday afternoon and they mentioned they were closing early due to an illness in the family. I guess that's what it was about. RIP.

        Sad news. Johnson's was the epitome of what a BBQ place should look like, almost ramshackle. Good food, though,and any mention of BBQ brings to mind how few and far between good 'que places are in the Bay Area.
