We stopped for lunch and first the old building/old schoolhouse was so cute!! The dining room was so quaint. The staff was very nice. We had the fried green tomatoes and their brisket! All of us enjoyed our meal. Very good. The drinks are served in mason jars. Adorable.

The downtown location is a repurposed church building. Great wood floors and room for large groups Same great food as the original location. The brisket is awesome. Great food for the money.

This was the first time we have dined at this restaurant. I had the pork plate. It was sooo good. My husband had the brisket and that was delicious. In fact, we went back again tonight and we brought our family, including our dog. Everybody was happy with the staff and food. We definitely recommend this restaurant!!!

If you are looking for a relaxed, down-home, friendly and wonderful restaurant, JD's is it!!! Well worth the drive from Atlanta (about 30 minutes w/o traffic, up "the 75") and quite comparable to other famous BBQ's in The ATL. But here, it's the Brisket!!! Lean, slow cooked and simply delicious!!! Paired with a one quart Ball jar of Iced tea;... More

We have been to JD'S numerous times and love their BBQ. I'm from NC and love the BBQ in my home state and this is a good comparison. They have several sauces to choose from on your table, so you don't have to worry about not liking the "flavor" of the BBQ because you add it yourself. The fried corn... More

The bar-b-que is good and they have good service. They also have all the traditional southern vegetable trimmings done right. I recommend the greens if you like them a little spicy.

My wife and I recently visited for dinner and enjoyed the experience. The barbecue was nice and tender. Our waitress was very sweet and took very good care of us. The location is really cool. I've been told it was an old school house that had also served as a church, but despite its age that have done a nice... More

We went for dinner and were nicely surprised, the food was good for BBQ and the service was very efficient and friendly, the portions are huge. Interesting decor look like a old school, the only challenge we had was the parking but we will come back.

One of the best BBQ place's, set in an old schoolhouse with outside dining on their deck. Ask for Emily - she was our incredible server! Wednesday night is 50 cent wings. Smoked Wings that come with a sweet or spicy sauce (or ask for the award winning sauce. They just might have some made up.) Save room for the... More

We left our softball tournament hungry!!! The staff was great they accommodate 25 of us. The service was good for our party. Best brisket. Was a little disappoint with peach cobbler but it's ok. If we come back to Georgia for sure I will stop and have barbecue at Jd's.
