We had a great lunch on a very hot day. I had the best turkey sandwich I have ever had...it melted in my mouth. My husband had a good sausage sandwich. We also had crispy onion rings and potato salad that was great.

The BBQ is great here! buns are a bid small, but they put a lot of meat on that little bun so you will need a fork for when your sandwich is done. when you finish, you can go get some free ice cream.. I mean, it's free so worth the price, but if they charged for it, they would... More

Huge chopped beef sandwich, very tasty. I am use to pork, but in Texas it's beef. Beef ribs were very good. Meaty and Tasty. We did not care for their coleslaw. We call it freezer slaw in Tennessee. Way too much vinegar and I kept getting choked. Fried okra and baked beans were great.

David's continues to carry on the family barbecue tradition of the old Red Bryan's (you gotta be an old guy like me to remember that). I'm not sure which of David's kids or grandkids is now running the place, but it's still one of the best barbecue places in town (and definitely the best in Pantego). There's hardly a week... More

David's BBQ has a rustic décor and the food is great with a very friendly staff. Portion sizes were great and reasonably priced. We had the brisket , chicken, pulled pork and sausage. It was all very tender and really didn't need sauce for any of it because it tasted great naked. This was our first visit to David's but... More

Nice friendly staff, but I thought the food was so-so. David's does appear to be a beloved institution by the locals, so maybe I ordered the wrong thing. Nothing I ordered was anything to write home about...even the barbecue sauce lol.

After hearing so much about this place we decided to give it a try. It's overrated, folks. There is WAY better barbecue in the area. And added downer was the attitude and judgy remarks by the cafeteria lady taking our money. We most certainly won't be back.
