This restaurant is a good local, non-chain style of BBQ. They have great sides, and the meat is consistently tender and juicy.

Davids is a good old fashioned barbecue joint. As soon as you walk in the wonderful smokey bbq smell overwhelms your senses. Walk in the line on the right until you come to the guy that slices your meat as you order it. Most popular item is the two meat plate. Brisket and sausage, or ribs and brisket with potato... More

We took sometime to get there, but when we found it we thought it might be the wrong place. After checking address it was really there. Simple menu and good food. For me it tasted a lot like brazilian bbq. Liked it a lot.

David's has very good BBQ for a reasonable price. I especially like their pork ribs, but their sides were a little disappointing, especially the potato salad.

I had some of the best barbeque during my trip to Texas in David's. The queue to get in should be a big clue that this is the place to be - expect to have to wait a while at lunchtime. The brisket was very tender and tasty, and my fried okra was excellent - the food is definitely recommended.... More

Being from the north authentic barbecue is tough to find. This place had me at opening the door. The smells . The ambience. The people. And yes the food.

Taken there by my in laws as they live in the area. Everything was excellent. They indicated that David's is probably the best and I can see why. It has been there for 4 generations. Had the ribs & brisket, wow. I would definitely go back again. They also offer take out. I wish he could deliver to Canada.

David's is a pretty low key place to eat, but it's certainly not run down either. The decor is mostly just pictures of all the celebrities and bigwigs that have eaten there over the decades, including John Travolta apparently. Although, I'm not sure if all of those are from David's Barbecue or one of the family's former restaurants. I was... More

I chose this restaurant based on Trip advisor. Usually those turn out good, but not always. I was a little underwhelmed by the strip mall and too few cars in the lot, but when the smokey aroma hit me as we opened the door, all doubt was removed. It was the usual barbeque restaurant choices in cafeteria style, but the... More
