EVERYTHING was super spicy. Nothing to cool it down but our drinks - which were refreshed frquently. If spice is your thing this is your place!

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

This restaurant was adjacent to our hotel and we were quite surprised at the service and the great flavor of their barbeque. we flew out of Buffalo and when we returned two weeks later we went back their to eat before we drove home that evening.

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

Good eats near the mall if you're in that area. not the best BBQ in WNY, but a great option nonetheless. Prices are fair and you get a TON of food, so come hungry. Wait times can be a bit long because of proximity to the mall, especially on the weekend, but still worth the wait.

Fed 4 people with a little leftover. We had very good service and our server brought us a cup of momemade potato chips to dip our sauce in to try them all. We told him we have not been there in many years so might not do this all the time. We had a groupon and saved a bit over... More
