Always good

Eat here often. Big portions and prompt service. The beans are one of the best side dishes around. All the meat choices are good and large portions.

I would have given it 5 stars had they not run out of ribs on my first visit. Seriously--- how do you run out of ribs?It wasn't even a weekend. This is a good BBQ place----not as good as Tortuga BBQ, but still very tasty food. I suppose you should be a local--- or like me, hang with a local... More

We got the beef brisket and ribs. Ribs were dry. Brisket had a good smokey flavor.... But almost half of my portion went in the trash because it was nothing but fat. The beans were ok.... Kinda like pinto beans.... Didn't care for the coleslaw.... Tasted kinda old and limp. Wouldn't go back.

I ate BBQ 3 days this week in FortWorth, Riscky's which I love for their "all you can eat l" beef ribs, excellent... Railhead for Chicken Tuesday, excellent and David's (actually in Arlington/Pantego) for beef plate. I understand it was originally a Red Bryan's and hence, also excellent. Large amount of nicely smoked brisket on the plate, and you fill... More

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.

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.
