Not a chain but a locally owned restaurant. Excellent, plain and simple BBQ. No fancy décor, but clean and comfortable

Everyone is Gainesville seems to be all about "Adam's BBQ", well they have nothing on David's! We always stop there when we are in town monthly. David's BBQ offers great food, large portions, and all at a reasonable price. They people are always friendly. I get a "Working Person's Turkey Sandwich on garlic toast with slaw no sauce, my favorite.... More

I've been going to David's BBQ since it first opened on 23rd ave years ago. Always excellent BBQ. This time I got a 3 combo to go, the pulled pork and ribs were old tasting and dry as was the chicken....first time I've ever tossed my BBQ diner away. Was a little disapointed but am hopeful it was just a... More

Got a very tasty BBQ burger. It was pretty big. Coleslaw tasted fresh. Loved the garlic bread and chicken I sampled off my son. Fried okra was also quite good and not greasy or mushy. Sweet sweet corn nuggets went down the hatch with a smile. Awesome spot for BBQ so glad we stopped in our Gville visit. Will return... More

Good BBQ pork and chicken sandwiches. They have other plates as well with many choices of sides. I love the corn nuggets. This is an order and take your own seat type of place, which is great if you are in a hurry, or just want some good food and don't need to be waited on. Like the laid back... More

Is this a secret menu item? The only reason I know about burnt ends is because the staff told me about it. As I was passing through Gainesville around lunch time, I spotted David's and I'm glad I did. Even though it was a busy weekday and there were plenty of other customers, the staff knew it was my first... More

So delish! We love the smoked turkey, barbecue beans, coleslaw and toast. Breakfast is a yummy treat every once and awhile. We usually phone in our order, pick it up and eat at home. Dining room is a bit rustic for our taste. Feels good to support a local business.

Haven't been to David's in years and after countless blah meals at Sonnys decided to give it a try. The sliced pork was excellent, sliced beef really good too. Chicken had good flavor but a touch on the dry side. Overall a solid BBQ meal for less than what you pay at Sonnys. Will Definately be back more often.

We like BBQ so we tried this place. It was okay, the seating was not very comfortable - you order and pick up your food at the counter, get your own drinks and take the tray to a table. During our visit there were only a couple other people and they were out of some of the soft drinks, including... More
