Succulent cuts of meat quell carnivorous appetites at PD Johnson’s, where chefs sling signature Johnson sammies bookended by slices of fresh white, wheat, sourdough, or rye bread. Anchored by roast beef, turkey, and bacon, the Hot Johnson fortifies its starchy confines with tangy dollops of horsey mayo and barbecue sauce as well as an army of refreshing veggies and zesty pepperoncinis cloaked in gooey cheddar shrouds. Savory sides of potato or pasta salad round out each platter, and fizzy sodas flow over chilly ice cubes in PD’s cool-keeper cups, which ensure beverages stay frosty when sipped in the vicinity of campfires or flamethrower fights.
PD Johnson's Dog Day Deli
The menu at PD Johnson's Dog Day Deli teems with 33 sandwich varieties that fall into four categories: hot, cold, light, and meatless. Possibilities range from the traditional—the Hot Johnson slathers hot roast beef and turkey in barbecue sauce and horseradish mayo—to more unexpected concoctions such as the Mad Dog, which caps a grilled black-bean burger in avocado and pepper jack. Patrons can also build their own sandwiches, acquiring the proper permits from city sandwich officials before choosing from five breads, more than a dozen meats, cheeses such as muenster and cream cheese, and sauces including thousand island dressing and wing sauce.
