Big fan of J.D.'s!! I typically order the potato salad, and got the pulled pork sandwich. Very succulent, and I'm their sauces are tasty, my favorite being the sweet/spicy one. Ask for less ice if you order a drink, I swear they pack ice on top of the ice!

This is a small place and locals mainly go here. The pork is moist and full of taste. The baked beans are real sweet put a little mustard in them and they are great. The portions are small. The establishment is a BBQ setting so don't expect something fancy.

Recent health score not observed. This rustic establishment is part of a 2-store local chain that features BBQ, burgers, hot dogs and wings, little else. There are a limited number of sides. They serve on paper and plastic. The pulled pork was good, the service very good, and the prices reasonable. Recommended; it doesn't stand out but there's nothing wrong... More

Will never go back...high prices and portions are in line with a kids meal. I think my beans consisted of about 4 bites. Good place to go if you want just a taste and not a meal. I've never seen such small portions in any restaurant like J.D.s.

Been going here since opened, but the prices seem to go up between each visit, the amount of food goes down and quality is not as good. Used to get wing plates with two veggie and bread and now just get one veggie no bread and more expensive. Heard owner spends more time at other location since they have beer... More

We got food to go here. The pulled pork and chicken was so tender. The only problem was they never gave us sauce. We were visiting family I Woodstock and were greatly disappointed. Service was friendly, staff pleasant

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
