It’s very rewarding to see our younger customers grow through the years and we know that one day, those kids will have kids of their own and a new generation will be eating with us. That is what makes this better than any other job to us. A wise person once said, “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life”, and they’re right… we haven’t worked since 1999. People see us putting our heart into everything at J.D.’s Bar-B-Que and we get that back in turn from our loyal customers. So yes, our family is huge and continues to grow every day.
We teach not only our children, but also our staff the importance of giving back. We want our community to be better because of this little hole-in-the-wall called J.D.’s Bar-B-Que. We take pride in our community service whether it is a donation of time, money or food, and are always there to lend a helping hand. We found out early on that the pleasure of rolling up your sleeves and helping a family, a group, or an organization is truly what makes our souls feel great. The best anyone can ever do is their personal best. We try to do that every day.
