Good food and great service

My husband and I are kinda new to the area. We would pass this place daily, but never stopped. We finally stopped in and were kinda leery because the place was virtually empty. We were seated immediately and the server came right over. She was really friendly and made a few menu... read more

Probably the best brisket I have had, and the chicken was soooo tender. Beautiful setting in an old renovated home. Service was good and friendly service, will go back when I'm in the area.

The ribs are so tender they fall off of the bone. I had them with the sweet bbq sauce but the spicy sauce is good too.

We've passed by this place a few times and always wanted to try it, but wished we'd passed by it this time too. The staff and service was great, but the food was a letdown. The ribs had so much sugar and sweetness cooked into them that I could literally taste nothing else. I actually thought that someone had spilled... More

There are better Places close by. Ziegler's and Barb-a-cutie Have better flavor. But this place is not bad.

The food itself is absolutely wonderful. Some of the best BBQ I have ever had. The baked beans have a grilled, smoky taste which was delicious. They had fried corn, a little too salty but still very edible. The service was very good. Not great with keeping drinks refilled, but that is something very minor. My child LOVED the BBQ... More

We had actually planned on going to another restaurant this day but the wait was too long, so we ended up at JD's. Now I'm not a huge BBQ lover, mostly because it's hard to find a place that does it right. I really had high hopes for JD's. I ordered a 1/4 rack rib plate with their "fried" corn... More

Excellent food and always more than enough! Try the fried pickles! Fabulous! The wait staff is always fast, friendly and attentive. We go several times a month.

We frequent this place. We have always had great food! Try their fried pickles, they are great. Parking can be a little problem but it's worth it. The sweet tea is great too.

Been there several times and each time they provide good smoked meats and fresh sides. Fried green tomatoes are very fresh starter. Meats like pork, chicken and ribs (fall of the bone) are best. Love the fried okra, cole slaw, French fries, and fried corn on the cob. Of course awesome sweet tea. One of the better smoked BBQ places.
