Sunday Motorcycle Ride & Ribs

Leisurely Sunday afternoon bike ride stopping at D&S for a drink and dinner. I had the St. Louis pork ribs and Mac&cheese balls, both were great!! My wife had the Daves platter which she enjoyed. Service was friendly and attentive. We've been there several times in the past, never been disappointed.

We were there on a Saturday at 4:30, we had made reservations for 8ppl. We all ordered different items on the menu, but we did agree that the pork ribs had more bones than meat, it appears you can only order the beef ribs when it comes in a platter. I ordered the pulled pork and found it to taste... More

If there was a scorecard for restaurants, D&S would have failed on all counts. So disappointed. Having been three times before - ones with a group of 8, and two other times with one other person - it had been beyond fabulous. The Dave's meat platter was superb, all three times. But the fourth was no charm. Granted, it was... More

Four of us saved our appetites on Saturday night (March 7) and went to dine at D&S (three of us had been there before and loved it). I normally don't complain but this experience was beyond the pale... It started off ok with some drinks that were delivered quickly (and we ordered one app to try). Fast forward to at... More

Went there last night with some friends and the service and food was great as always. The onion rings are AWESOME!!!!! The meat is cooked to perfection. If you love BBQ you have to eat here. Doesn't matter if you are here with family, friends, kids or date night you will love the food.

Lots of snowmobilers coming in. Food was good and plentiful . beer cold and good variety to choose from. Music would have been nice... More

16 of us had a great night out. Only one of us didn't like the spice but I thought the ribs, onion rings and smoked stack salad were delicious. Pass on the pulled pork slider and wings. But I now have my favorites for next time!

I have been going to D&S for years. Everytime I go, I get something different, only because everything is so good. Brisket and smoked chicken are so good, onion rings, nachos, Mac & cheese balls and armadillo eggs are to die for. I used to get the fish&chips but it was taken off the menu. Sad because it was really... More

Armadillo eggs, really?? Sausage wrapped around jalapeno with cheese....just crazy enough to work and be delicious, and smokey and tasty. Also had the brisket which was absolutely to die for! great saucy flavour makes the brisket. The chicken was smokey and good but a little on the dry side for my personal liking. The decor doesn't really match the menu... More

If you like real BBQ and you don't mind getting a little (or lots!) of BBQ sauce on your fingers, this is the place for you! we all had different items and ended up sharing each... More
