Pretty good

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... read 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

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.

I am an avid BBQ'er and mostly cook my own but we always get JD's Bar-B-Que for the 4th of July when we go out on our boat. This guy sure knows his BBQ and makes a great pulled pork sandwich and his BBQ beans and coleslaw are top notch as well. And as usual, the left overs taste even... More

JD and his staff really put their hearts into their BBQ. I remember when he had a tiny storefront in an old market on BF Rd. His place on Bells Ferry is always busy when I drive past, and his new place in downtown Acworth is gorgeous. Never disappointing. Great family run restaurant.

We were visiting family in the area and passed this "joint" and had to stop in! Coming from NY we are not known for BBQ and this was just what we wanted. Prices are great, service is friendly and the BBQ is outstanding and plentiful. I had a huge salad with pulled pork and used a combo of the spicy... More

Ok so some people have given mixed reviews about this little bbQ pit and I'm with both. You have to know what to eat to get the treat. Pulled pork and chicken it unbelievable. Cole slaw was great. Sweet tea was good. Chicken wings are so..so.. green beans pretty good. Wife loves the fried okra. They even give frequent buyers... More
