Melanie and I are passing through Birmingham, here for a few days. We're parked at my dentist office in Homewood, running a few errands and then lunch.
Johnny's was/is one of our go-to places for lunch when we lived in Birmingham. Our son, Tate, had a summer job there.

Johnny's Meat and Three
Timothy Hontzas is a Homewood Chef and restaurant owner of Johnny's - one of the top meat and three lunch spots in Birmingham. He is also a proud Greek-American. His grandfather came to America from Greece on a cattle boat and worked his way up in the restaurant business before starting his own successful restaurant. Johnny's Greek And Three looks at Chef Hontzas and the role of Greek immigrants in shaping Birmingham dining.
