This place will fill your ribs with theirs , Had a large group for family Dinner. A variety of foods but all came hot and in large portions to fill even the hungry teenagers. My steak salad was loaded with large chunks tri-tip steak. Grandma ordered the Bourbon St Louis Ribs, filled her up for three days.

Let me start out by saying that I love Dave's! The closest one is about an hour from where we live and we'll go here for special occasions. While on this visit the food was a 5 the service was a 1. This restaurant is typically busy, but they are accustomed to it. Even though busy the service is always... More

Lovely place - always busy but we did not wait for long - seated in this spacious cowboy space we tucked into a fantastic bbq dinner - the brisket and ribs were fantastic. Our family of 6 went for a meal for 4 and there was plenty. Friendly and efficient service- noisy, bustling, sport on TV's - its the USA.

Yes after several times I'm still happy with the food and service! Plus they usually have at least one decent beer on tab, over all I always enjoy the food and their servers. Ribs always so delicious and my friend also like it!!

We have been here after a shopping stop at the mall, the counter from Target recommended it to us. We loved it, real southeastern style food. We had the plate with everything on it, it couldnt be better. Service could be better, but we didnt mind.

Stopped by here for lunch with my family and would have preferred to go somewhere else but group majority wanted to eat here. Excellent selection of BBQ'd meats served in a variety of ways. However I was looking for something with less protein and their only other entree options besides BBQ'd meats was a choice between 4 different salads.

This place is one that my family intends on visiting once a month. We love their food!!! The menu's are set up on what is like an old newspaper and you can take them home. The prices aren't cheap, this isn't a Mc Donald's price range. So for 2 and if you like to have a couple drinks, it will... More
