Good BBQ

Great place to eat - not the greatest BBQ in town, but good for the price. The atmosphere is kids friendly & easy for large groups.

On a recent trip to visit family, it was recommended we visit JDs BBQ and I am certainly glad we did. We showed up at about 5:00 on the Fourth of July and our party of eight, including an electric chair were seated as soon as the set the table for our larger than normal group. Our party ordered a...

First time here, but with co workers who were regulars. Ya know a BBQ place is good when the locals pack the place. 10 tables and all full. I had the brisket sandwich on garlic toast. The portion was very large, the meat was moist, flavorful, crusty and tender. I got so lost in the meat I forgot to add... More

The photos by FlyLowe on this are NOT of the restaurant in Acworth. We visited on a Tuesday for lunch and found the place empty at noon. Not a good sign. The place is an old schoolhouse with high ceilings, hardwood floors, and large windows. The echo was horrible. They need drapes and things on the walls to absorb sound.... More

Stopped into the Acworth, GA location of JD's which is in an old school house and the building & interior are neat. Ordered the jumbo pulled pork & a side of onion rings. Had water to drink which was served in miniature mason jars with handles. I hope other drinks were in larger glasses. Pork is not pulled, but pulverized.... More

Typical great Bar-B-Que in a historic building. Service was good and quick! Restaurant was clean and well maintained. And relaxed. Fixens were tasty and went well with the meat! Will return again and again!

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.

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 suggestions. We ordered and our food came out... More

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
