JDs is a long time staple in the Woodstock area. The BBQ is always good. Really like the sauce too. Favorite is the chopped pork and brisket. The iced tea is some of the best. Service and atmosphere are lacking. I usually only do takeout.

Happened to be in Woodstock. Noticed some reviews raving about the Brisket. Decided what the heck, give it a shot. Simply the best brisket I have had in Atlanta. Moist, flavorful, the right amount of smoke, nice crispy bark (REALLY UNUSUAL), and decent sized sandwich....More

Went to JD's for the first time @ 7 pm 3/12/18. Although the place was near empty, had to wait about 20 minutes for items that should have already been cooked or prepared. Three couples came in after us and were waited on before we...More

This place is really good. Their BBQ is first rate, and most of their side items are very good. The restaurant itself is a little dated, but they keep it clean and the service is very good.

My last review, in 2012, said it was a "no frills" kind of BBQ joint. Thank goodness that hasn't changed. Business has been good and they've opened an "upscale" joint in Acworth, GA. I've eaten here so often, and taken que home so often it...More

Stopped here for lunch and was surprised! The waitress greeted us immediately and offered water. We ordered drinks and they were in large mason jars. Pulled pork was delicious and the serving was large enough for 2. The onion rings were yummy. The corn was...More

I love this place. It is far better than the one in Acworth even though I think they are owned by the same people. The food at this location is the best. The Bar-B-Que Salad is great. You get more meat than salad and it...More
