we were in the mood for some good BBQ and since we were in TX we thought we could find some. We did , we checked out 2 or 3 places and choose The Pit on Main ST. We choose well. We both had the brisket sandwich and shared some killer green beans. Both were excellent as a confirmed meat... More

Brisket was dry with no flavor. Don't know how they can in good conscience call it barbecue. We ate there because there was plenty of parking at lunch time during the Memorial Day weekend--that should have given us a clue.

We stayed next door at the Itz Inn last month and they didn't have breakfast here. We came back this month and they had started breakfast service with tacos. They were great. I will say, one is enough for most people. My wife and I were headed to Enchanted Rock to climb and hike, so we got 2 tacos apiece.... More

This is a GREAT BBQ place!! I eat here often and I am very picky about where I eat! Ribs, brisket or chicken you can;t go wrong!

I visit Dave's every time I come to Fredericksburg and their bbq has been consistently top-notch with great service and atmosphere. The brisket has a distinct smoke ring and good bark, and most importantly is fall-apart tender. The sausage and ribs are also outstanding. Also, their pinto beans and green beans are phenomenal!

Yucky ' BBQ '. I cannot stress that enough! Service left something to be desired. The BBQ sauce was liquid. The meat contained no flavor. And what I did try to eat --- I was forced to spit it out by my gag reflex. Definitely AVOID this place!!!!

The meat was fall-apart good and you add your own sauce so it is not sopping. There's even the obligatory loaf of white bread! Not the best I've ever ever had, but a very enjoyable meal...the sides were quite good also.

Had the sliced brisket, not BBQ, more like something cooked in a crock pot. You want BBQ go to cranky franks on 87.

It's just a small barbecue place. Good barbecue, simple ordering, fast service, not much atmosphere. But wow, the French fries are good! Like you're eating real potatoes. Why can't all restaurants have these?

This is the best spot around for real traditional old BBQ, not just a over smoked meat. Dave's meats are always moist and flavorful with wonderful sides to go along at a really reasonable price.
