Humm!! is the word. Great atmosphere amd food. Catering is also available..served for my daughter's wedding and was fantastic. The Barbeque is one of the best that I have eaten. Visit them quite often.

They have great BBQ & Brunswick Stew, but they also have great HB Steaks, Baked Potatoes, tea and homemade desserts. Order at counter and pick up, so no servers-but really none necessary!!

Dirty restaurant, tons of flies, mediocre food. I was not impressed with the bbq. There are much better options in Dalton. The staff wasn't friendly and I felt unwelcome. Overall, I would not recommend this restaurant. If you really want to try it perhaps getting it to go would be a more pleasant experience.

Went here for the first time and will never go back. I would warn anyone who's had REAL BBQ!! Not to stop there. The cole slaw was the worst ever, the BBQ sauce tasted like old wine. The baked beans came straight out of a can.... Terrible!!! Whoever rates this place good has never left Dalton or tried real BBQ!!... More

Mom and pop in Dalton Ga and located near AutoZone on Glennwood. The prices are a little high but the food is good. The building could use a facelift.

Got a reasonable amount of food for the money, but was surprised by the quality. Didn't really seem to be bbq so much as it seemed to be pork in bbq sauce. It was ok, but it wouldn't be my first stop in Dalton for BBQ.

Stopped in for a Bar-b-que sandwich, and was very pleased. Nothing fancy, but reasonably priced and ample portions. Food was hot and tasted good.

We love eating at Johns Barbecue. They have delicious pulled chicken or pork, awesome sides and some of the best sweet tea. It is the perfect southern meal. Oh and they make some mean pie too!
