Johan’s Burger Express Harbor Springs

Johan’s Burger Express Harbor Springs review, hours, & menu info. Johan’s is located on M-119 in Harbor Springs just minutes between Downtown Petoskey and Downtown Harbor Springs.

We were vacationing in the Harbor Springs/Petoskey area recently and stumbled upon Johan’s Burger Express. It’s kind of in an odd location as it shares a building with the EZ Mart. We were craving burgers so we thought we’d give it a shot.

Johan’s Burger Express serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Breakfast items include eggs, bagels, donuts, breakfast burritos, and sides. In addition to burgers, they also offer Paninis, wraps, and salads too. Be careful of going online to check the menu, it’s a bit outdated. Some things listed on the online menu are not available at the restaurant, or they are different than described.

Johan’s Burger Express Harbor Springs is set up “order-at-the-counter” style with a casual indoor dining area. But, it’s not fast food. The burgers and food are fresh and made to order. The quality was there as well… nothing like you’d find at a fast food burger joint. In fact, Johan’s reminds me of the “Down State”, “better-than-fast-food” hamburger places like Burgrz, Johnny’s Wayback Burger, SmashBurger etc… It’s the “Up North” version of Burgrz.


The patties at Johan’s Burger Express are available in 1/4 lb., 1/2 lb., or you can go big with their one pounder+ and it gets your name on the plaque if you can finish it. The current leader was able to consume a 2 1/2 lb. burger! There are many different burgers to choose from – olive burger, black and bleu burger, black bean veggie burger, etc. The buns are toasted for a nice touch, and are more substantial than a typical “Wonder” brand style bun and can impressively hold a large burger. Johan’s Burger Express serves thick cut fries and they were piping hot. There’s a lot of talk/hype about their onion rings which are super crisp and not overly greasy.
