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 serving Gainesville and North Georgia delicious BBQ. They have since expanded the building, cooking areas, and the parking lot to accommodate our growing community.
We offer eat in dining, carry out and some deliveries. We also offer onsite catering and have catered events ranging from 50 to 1000 people.
We smoke daily fresh pork, beef, chicken and ribs and also serve great sides like Brunswick stew, Coleslaw, Baked beans and desserts.
We have been blessed with the continued support of our community for over twenty 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,
Tharpe and Judy Ward

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.
