My family all ordered the breakfast tacos and loved them. I had a chipped BBQ sandwich. The bun was toasted and the brisket perfectly chopped - NO FAT. Help yourself to the sauce, pickles, and pico. Simple service, simple but again some of the best BBQ I have ever eaten. Some folks try too hard but this place has it... More

Cranky Frank's was closed so our group of 11 went to Dave's after a long day of climbing on Enchanted Rock. The brisket was moist, the potato salad and beans a hit. The bbq sauce tasted too much like ketchup and service could have been better, but the guys enjoyed it, there was no wait, and everyone left full.

The place is not fancy, but it is clean has friendly staff and the food is good. The sauce is a little bit on the vinegary side, but not to much so. My wife and daughter had the brisket sandwich and I had the 1/2 BBQ Chicken, both were good. If you like Sweet Tea be careful. I don't know... More

I haven't tried the breakfast tacos but the BBQ is not real tasty. I would recommend the half chicken for lunch. Really nice owners!

When we are in Fredericksburg, a Saturday morning breakfast taco is our usual. I usually have a German sausage (spicy) with egg and cheese. With the fresh salsa, a very good and filling meal. We were talking to a couple of locals who suggested we try a special BBQ sauce there. It is not out to see, but if you... More

We tried this place for Sunday lunch. It looked nice and clean as we entered. I ordered a two meat plate with brisket & Sausage and my wife had a one meat with Chicken. We received our food rather quickly. My wife noticed she was given the chicken breast instead of the dark meat she ordered. But they were getting... More

I had beef ribs that was full of fat, could not eat it, I took a couple of bites out of my mouth, it was inedible. My husband had to have pork ribs as they ran out of the beef ribs, they were full of gristle, very little meat. The sweet potato fries were good & so was the macaroni... More

Stopped in here today for a quick lunch while on assignment. I had the chopped brisket sandwich deal. The brisket was nice and tender but not full flavored as one would expect from a Texas BBQ. Good for a quick bite not is not a chain.

My husband and I stopped in for a late lunch. We both ordered the pulled pork sandwich with cole slaw and pinto beans. I wanted ribs, but they were out of ribs, which was rather disappointing. The sandwich was okay, there was a good amount of pulled pork topped with the cole slaw and a small cup of pinto beans.... More
