Messy, sticky, delicious BBQ will not leave you wanting more because the servings are HUGE. Ordered the feast for 2 with an extra meat and had dinner for 5! I cannot believe how much food this place gives you - the chicken and ribs are absolutely fabulous! So moist and flavorful. Sides are very good - corn on the cob... More

It wasn't busy when we got there. They sat us out in a room where we were out of sight and therefore nobody came to serve us. I finally got up sad asked the hostess to move us to a table where there was a waitress to serve us. At our new table we were served immediately. The food was... More

First of all, the taste of the food is amazing! I had a beef brisket with pineapple steaks and my boyfriend had the pulled chicken. The sauce they had was delicious, and there are 6 of them on the table for you to add a little more spice to it. I love the hot sauce Devil's Spit, it is one... More

Very friendly staff. A little slow to get to the table. The Salad with pork is AMAZING!!! I would definitely travel to have that again.

4/7/14 we went to Daves for the Southside ribs, like we had done so many times before. This time the meal was terrible? It seems the tips now have mostly vertebrae bones? Most of the meat was unedible. The Loaded baked potato was stone cold, with very little on it as far as loaded toppings go, and the waitress seemed... More

We were using a Groupon that my son bought for me for my birthday and invited another couple to join us. We ordered the feast for 4 (can't remember the exact name of the dish). It was amazing - ribs, chicken, brisket, pork, beans, corn on the cob, cole slaw corn bread, fries. Wow. And it tasted as good as... More
