We have been customers of JR's Log House for 28 years or so. We typically get everything to go. The loin back ribs are meaty and tasty with very little fat, have a beautiful smoke ring and very tender. The pulled pork is very tender and delicious, served without too much sauce. I have not found a... read more

Myself and a coworker were looking at nearby restaurants and came across 2 bbq options. After reading trip advisor we gave JR's a shot. When you enter the restaurant you can SMELL the smoky/hickory/BBQ scent. The major pluses were the speed of service (seated and served entrees within 10 mins) friendly staff, and above average food. I had chopped bbq... More

Had Father's Day dinner here. Decor is nothing fancy, rustic smoky atmosphere, just like an authentic BBQ place should be. It has been in business for quite a while. I had lunch here once several years ago. My son & I both had the 2 meat dinner. I had sliced pork & beef while he had the chicken & ribs.Generous... More

Went to JR's on Saturday for lunch, first time there in about 15 years. Food was good, but it didn't take long to remember the extremely slow service; remembered that service was the reason we used to mainly get takeout. Almost 10 minutes before server came to table first time, then another 15 to get food. And the place was... More

My wife and I use to frequent JR's at least once a month when we lived close by. It has been several years since we have eaten there. My love for the place was erased almost immediately. First off, the service was fair at best. We were having breakfast and I almost had to serve coffee to myself which I... More

Had breakfast once again at JR's. Food is great quality. All staff are friendly and helpful. Our server even gave me an extra biscuit when she heard I was visiting from Canada. This place is a delight every single time.

The food and service is always the greatest. The Brunswick stew and sliced pork is my favorite. Have been visiting this restaurant ever since it opened.

Our first visit to JR's in about 20 years, the Old Hickory House in Dunwoody was a few miles closer to our home, but is now closed, and we have tried several breakfast spots which left a lot to be desired. Decided to make the trip to JR's, and that was a good idea, Server ' Christy' very professional, food... More

I was lucky enough to spot this gem which was down the block from my hotel. When I travel I try and have food that I cannot get in the Northeast. While the service is eh (i did take out) the food is delicious! I had the chopped pork sandwich with mac and cheese, collard greens, and friend okra. The... More
