The first thing you think about when stepping inside the doors of JD's Smokehouse, is that the place is family respected and oriented. You are greeted with a smile and delightful attitudes that melts your heart faster than their tender pork. You are given your drinks as you place your order and you have the privilege to sit anywhere in the restaurant. JD's is famous for their pork butt barbeque (pulled pork), but they also have mouth-watering beef brisket, ribs, and delicious chicken tenders. The plates come with two home cooked sides and bread. This doesn’t include the tasteful sandwiches that comes with one side. I must add that the home cooked sides are fashionably grandma style such as: green bean casserole, fried okra, Jalapeño cheese grits, sweet potato crunch, banana pudding, and much, much more. With-in minutes you are attended to by your waitress and given information about their different sauces to accommodate your pork, brisket, and /or chicken. It is a nice gesture to have not one but several of the waitress’ in the restaurant come up to you to make sure you are okay and have enough to drink. The service is one that many other restaurants lack and they could look up to this family place for some guidance on how to take care of their customers. The only thing that I could think of that would make JD’s Smokehouse any better, would be to add on an addition to their menu and that would be a “baked potato with the works.” Keep up the great work! If you are ever in the area of Valdese look them up. They are open Thursday, Friday, and Saturdays 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. At 500 Malcolm Blvd Rutherford College NC 28671.
