Welcome to J.R.’s Log House

Restaurant-Front J.R.'s first started serving great barbeque and breakfast in May 1983. However, our history goes back more than 55 years to when "J.R.," Jerry Romano, started cooking and serving pit-cooked barbeque as a teenager in his family's restaurant. The recipes we serve today have been handed down from grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Many were originally part of The Old Hickory House Restaurants, which were an Atlanta institution for more than 50 years. Along with our great barbeque, we cook a variety of fresh daily vegetables and serve breakfast 7 days a week with the biggest biscuits and pancakes you've ever seen. Today, you can still see some of the same employees here who helped us open our doors in 1983.


Meet Javy, Hector, and Eddie

Javy, Hector, Tim, Eddie

After 33 years in business, J.R.’s has been home to literally thousands of employees over those years. These three guys — Javy, Hector, and Eddie — are three of the best workers and people I have ever had the privilege to work with. Collectively they have been with me for 52 years. We are family.
