Old Family business. Probably the # 1 BBq in Arlington. I know it has the best potato salad. The original BBq was called Red Byants and was located on Collins where the new Cowboy Stadium stands. Family works in the restaurant which means a very friendly place. Has a lot of regulars.

Trip advisor rated this restaurant #20 in Dallas. They were right. Throughout our party of 6 we ended up trying everything. There wasnt anything we didnt like. Close to Six Flags and the Cowboys stadium. Go!!!!

There are other BBQ places around, this is Texas after all, but I haven't eaten at any of the others in a while. That is only because David's is closed on Mondays. Sides are made on the premises, and all the meats are great. Free soft serve when you are finished, if you have room.

Meats are never dry. Always a large satisfying plate . Free ice cream at the end of the meal. The sides are always great.

By far the best customer device I've received in forever from anywhere! Since we were coming from out of town the navigation couldn't pin point the location and had to call for directions. Found the restaurant in less than 3 minutes and when arriving the workers were super sweet! And food is amazing!!! Most deff coming back!!!

Very good barbecue in Arlington. We went in and enjoyed the brisket and ribs. The sides weren't the best I have had but they were good and very down home. Definitely returning.

David's is very good BBQ. The prices are reasonable. You get a LOT of food. The beer is ice cold. Staff are VERY friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend David's to anyone in the area.

I visited with my bother and SIL while in Dallas on a recent biz trip. We had planned another BBQ joint that my brother frequents but there was a big game at the stadium. We decided to stay closer to his house and checked out David's after reading tripadvisor reviews. I ordered a "half" rib plate. Glad I did because... More

The BBQ here has been consistently outstanding for the more than 50 years my family has been eating here. The beef, ham, ribs, sausage and turkey are always moist, never dry, and served in large portions. This is absolutely genuine BBQ at very reasonable prices. Don't waste your time looking for steam tables because there are none and never have... More
