Not fancy, but good for what it is.

Good and inexpensive barbecue. the place has been there forever, so if you want a fancy, date-night place go elsewhere. Otherwise, you will get friendly service with tasty Southern barbecue. Not the best in the area, but certainly holds its own.

I can't tell you how many times I've passed this place always wanting to stop and eat here. Finally, after a long day with the kids playing ball nearby, another family convinced us to come here. I have to say... I'm extremely picky about my ribs and BBQ in general. I travel to Texas quite frequently - BBQ capital of... More

I'm from Memphis so i know good ribs. These where good. Had some corn on the cob with order which is unique. Bbq sauce is sweet and so is the slaw. Texas toast with butter on it is served as the bread side. Good food. I recommend it.

I was really surprised at how good this was after seeing the outside. The barbecued pork is excellent as is the brisket. The sides are less impressive however and that detracts from the overall score a little bit. I tried it because of friends recommendations and I was not disappointed at all. I have heard that the staff can be... More

The staff is not necessarily the friendliest, but the bbq is great! Perfect smoke rings and flavor. I guess all the love and energy gets put into the food, so the attitudes are forgiven lol. I'll always come back here alone or with friends for some bbq. It truly is the only place I recommend to anyone that comes into... More

We hadn't been here in quite a long time. I never wrote or checked reviews back then. Last night we had the desire to have some 'cue. I'm glad we stopped here. My wife enjoyed the pulled pork. I can make that at home so I like to try things I'm not so good at making. I chose the smoked... More

But JD's puts out some delicious dishes!! A little hole in the wall you may never have really noticed, but should. The pulled pork plate is so much food for the money.

We come up to Georgia a couple times a year and when we get BBQ we always get JD's. I think it is good but the real review is that my wife is not a fan of BBQ and she even likes it! Deserves to be at least in the top twenty if not top ten

Don't let the looks of this building fool you. This place serves up some GREAT Bar-B-Que! Since 1999, J.D's has been a great place for hickory smoked bar-b-que. Their chopped pork is always flavorful and moist, and their sides are delicious. Their price is good for the portion size you get. The restaurant isn't very big, so show up early... More

For good, solid BBQ, you just can't beat J. D.'s. Their pulled pork sandwiches are huge and very reasonably priced. I actually think they are probably the best BBQ in the Woodstock area.
