ABOUT JOHNNY’S BBQ

Johnny’s BBQ first opened in Gainesville GA in 1990. Johnny and Deborah Mallard were the original owners.
Tharpe and Judy Ward purchased the business in the spring of 1995 and continued the tradition of served Gainesville and North Georgia for 25 years until their much deserved retirement in 2019. Johnny’s was then acquired by Tharpe and Judys nephew/employee of 20 years Zack and Nikki Ivey who are devoted to continue the tradition of serving Gainesville and North Georgia delicious BBQ.
We offer eat dine in, carry out and deliveries when available. We also offer onsite catering and have catered events ranging from 50 to 1000 people.
We smoke fresh pork, beef, chicken ribs and wings daily with Hickory. We also serve great sides like Brunswick stew, Coleslaw, Baked beans, chips, and hot crinkle cut fries.
We have been blessed with the continued support of our community for thirty years and work very hard to maintain fresh quality foods.
Call or come by for more information or for us to assist you in your catering needs.
We appreciate your business and friendship.
Sincerely,
Zack and Nikki Ivey

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

My mom was so excited to take me here for lunch, proclaiming it was the first barbecue she’s ever really liked. After trying a pork plate lunch special, I can see why.

Kristin B., Atlanta, GA

I love the pulled pork sandwiches that come on a plain hamburger bun. I don’t do brunswick stew but I hear their’s is the best. And the ribs…omg the ribs..

Lauren S., San Francisco, CA

We eat here about twice per month. This is some of the best barbecue in our area. The staff is very friendly and service is great. They always have high ratings on the food inspectors inspection. Go by and get some great BBQ.
