We took a trip down the great river road, had no plans and stumbled upon this place. Hometown feel, walk up to the counter and order. Had no idea what to expect, but YUM, the barbecue was delicious. Highly recommend to anyone in the area.

Stopped there for lunch in October - had a delicious bloody Mary and fantastic ribs with great baked beans and Mac and cheese - large portions - enjoyed sitting at the bar connected to the restaurant while we waited for our food order.

This place is darn good. The family and I visited this past Saturday night. We fed the whole crew and had a few cold brews. The service was fast and friendly and the food was perfect. We enjoyed the ribs, brisket, some pulled-pork nachos, and some cold beverages. I am not an expert in BBQ but I thought the food... More

We enjoyed the meal at J & J Barbeque. The bbq ribs are top of the line. They flake off the bones and are juicy with their own special sauces.

I hadn't been to JJs for awhile and then it was always for lunch. Went for dinner with friends and will be returning again soon. The ribs are fantastic. To break from the usual, I had the mac and cheese as a side and was not disappointed. Great BBQ.

Jim and Laura have created an enjoyable eating experience, ribs are their specialty, large ice cream cones, interesting decor, bar and Laura's gift shop. You will leave with a smile and will be happy you stopped there. I can promise you will stop again and again.
