We will make this our go to restaurant on our way home to Illinois from Florida. Loved everything we ate. My 1/2 slab of ribs was meaty and so tender, but next year I will order 1/4 slab...way too much food for me. My husband had the pulled pork/ brisket and said it's the best he's had. Fried corn was...

After watching a cooking show about BBQ, we started looking for a BBQ place near where we were staying in Cartersville. We happened to see JD's as we drove through town and, noting that it seemed pretty popular based on the number of cars in the lot, we decided to give it a try. We were promptly seated in a... More

We wanted BBQ so we found this not far from the highway! I'm so glad we came here! The food and service was excellent!

I give this a 4 star rating because, while what I ate was good, the rest of my table thought their food was better than "just" good. I got a BLT sandwich that was falling apart with soggy bread by the time I received it. The bacon was good, but there was a hefty spread of mayo and the thick... More

My friend and I were looking for a quick bite to eat in Acworth. Our first option had an hour wait. He suggested JD`s and since neither of us had ever eaten there, we decided to give it a try. The place was clean and staff were friendly. I had the pork plate and at 11:00 I thought it was... More

Not a bad little bar-b-que joint outside of southern Atlanta. The brisket has good bark and the sauces are flavorful. Chicken is always moist.

JD's has really good food if you're looking for home cooking and need some comfort food. The portions are gigantic and you will definitely leave feeling either satisfied or miserable! Lol The service here is stellar. Keep up the good work guys!

As a Northerner, I enjoy trying the foods that are less common at home and more common in the South. The food at J.D.'s met my expectations at a reasonable price. As a bonus, the servers were knowledgeable and friendly and the décor was unique.

When you stop at Cabelas just off of I-75 in Acworth and need some food, forget about those cookie-cutter chain restaurants. Just a few short minutes away is JD's on Main Street. Now, I like BBQ, and I have eaten a lot of it. But, JD's is magnificent! The smoke flavor is infused into the meat through the slow cooking... More

Great food, great service. The best part is it's only a couple blocks from my house. Worst part is going outside in the afternoon (if the wind is blowing this way) and smelling the smoker at JD's, hard to not get hungry all over again...
