The restaurant was opened in 1960’s, and was named after the nickname of the first owner.
Edo Salamon, the first of owner of the place was a seaman who sailed at the time when Lyndon B. Johnson was the President of the United States. Since Edo was a great admirer of President Johnson, he was given a nickname after him which, consequently, became the name of the restaurant.
