This place is great!

I was there the opening day in 1983 and have been a fan ever since! We ate there 2-3 times a week as it was close to home and work. My very very favorite is Edna's Gourmet BBQ sandwich. Oh my gosh - just love it! It's a great place to chill and enjoy your meal. Wonderfully, the aroma of... read more

Went to JR;s for Sunday breakfast as we heard it was good. I wondered how a BBQ place would be but I was pleasantly surprised by the service and the breakfast offerings. I;ve never seen a pancake that big and it tasted great as well. I'm anxious to try it for their BBQ.

They have the absolute best ribs and Brunswick Stew around! All of their menu items are awesome. The vege plate is very good with a large selection to choose from. Not fancy, just down home and delicious.

I could smell this place from the highway on my way to drop things off for Jacqui Beals and David Reaves wedding reception and just had to stop for breakfast. Looked like my kind of place and I may come back for lunch after I drop everyone at the church. Happy day, for all the right reasons.

Came for Sunday lunch with family. Wife and I had the chopped pork combo plates. The pork was just bland and the sauce didn't help. The sides were a mixed bag. The Brunswick stew and beans were very good. The slaw and potato salad were uninspiring . Others at the table shared their ribs. Good smoke, but a little dry.... More

JR's has better than average BBQ. The portions are very large (and the AYCE rib special is a great deal). The sides could be a little better. And the cornbread needs a lot of work. Whenever I'm in town visiting family, this is a go-to spot (and likely will remain one).

This place is definitely not a chain, and the waitstaff and food are wonderful. Excellent service, fresh veggies, everything well-prepared. It feels like a great family-owned restaurant!

We were in Norcross on business and decided to avoid our hotel's lousy and expensive restaurant. We found JR's nearby, on a Google search. We arrived mid-morning on a Saturday, and were seated immediately. Our waitress, Jess (I think!) quickly arrived and brought us coffee. She was so efficient, and without all that obsequious groveling that is the usual thing... More

The food was tasty enough and the wait staff was very attentive but if you are expecting outstanding deep South barbeque you are going to be disappointed. This restaurant could be anywhere in the country.

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 better Brunswick stew... More
