About this Article

Before you even walk in the door at JD's Q & Brew you can tell -- make that smell -- that good things await inside. An enticing sweet and smokey aroma surrounds the casual barbecue joint, and if I could take a picture of it, I imagine the aura encircling the Rand Road eatery would resemble the clouds hovering around Venus. Once you pull into the parking lot you cannot escape the gravitational pull, nor would you want to.
