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.

All around great BBQ, ribs, meat, sausage, smoked turkey and there beans and French fries are the bomb! Any haters of this place are just haters, this place blowed all the typical commercial BBQ garbage.

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

You just can't beat their Barbeque! Got to be some of the best in Texas! Beats San Antonio & Houston making it good barbeque and a great place to visit and eat. The pricing is good and certainly fair.

This restaurant has great BBQ! The brisket is so tender and sausage has a great flavor! The okra is my favorite side - so crispy and tasty. The only thing I have a problem with is that I wish they had a couple more sides to choose from like mac and cheese or green beans etc. They only have fries,... More

Always Clean and always good! Difinately some of the best in Texas! That means it is some of the best in the world! The owner is always there and is a very pleasant and friendly fellow. Has a side bar with relish, jalapenos, onions, etc which is good. Good No Hasle Place! Will continue eating there!
