We have eaten here quite a few times since it has opened. Good luck trying to eat here for supper, especially during the weekend, it gets crazy busy! There isn't a ton of seating, but unless we are starving, we wait. Quite a few times we have had our order come out wrong and I agree service is definitely not... More

Stopped in this place for lunch. Great service, a lot of variety on the menu, and good food. My cheddar mushroom burger was juicy and flavorful, with fresh mushrooms. The pulled pork on the nachos was very good, too. When I return I will focus more on the BBQ items on the menu.

JDs is a 'must stop' in Dickinson, especially if you like barbecue. They have many other dishes too like burgers & pasta. I've never been disappointed here.

Went with a group of friends for lunch. It was a very pleasant experience. Our waitress did a great job assisting us with drinks and orders. We got our food very quickly and everyone in our party was pleased with all of their choices.

I have eaten here many occasions over the years, their cornbread is great! I find their buffalo sauce lacking in flavor and just having hot instead. I do enjoy their salads and wraps as well as the burgers. All of the appetizers are unique and delicious and their "wings" are HUGE. Expect and ENTIRE chicken wing, not a tiny normal... More

I went here too many times and have never been disappointed. You are promptly seated. Your order is taken immediately. You get your food super quick and it is always delicious. The staff is professional.

I don't know much about traditional southern bbq but I enjoy the food here. It's a little loud and peanuts are served where you crack them to the floor. I usually get a sample type basket for variety.

... With shells on the floor to prove it. Currently under reno so not at its best. Our table was a little crumb-y. Friendly, prompt service. Large portions of food that was delivered as promised on the menu.

When it first opened it was comparable. Now, not so much. Price steadily increases but quality does not.
