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 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.
