The plate lunch comes with choice of jambalaya or link of boudin and two additional sides — those in the know recommend the cucumber and tomato salad with ingredients straight from the garden. For Eat Lafayette, Johnson’s is offering a special price for its pulled pork sandwich, with chips and drink, for $6.95. In addition to the restaurant, Johnson’s also sells its signature sausage, tasso, beef jerk, barbecue sauce and seasonings. Johnson’s is located at 1111 Saint John St. and is open Tuesday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
