We enjoyed our dinner here. We had to wait about 30 minutes, but the time estimate was spot-on. The drinks were plentiful. The BBQ sauces were good. The corn bread muffin was great. I had the pulled pork plate, and my daughter had the brisket....More

The food was very good, we got a cup of the ale and cheese soup, the brisket sandwich, and the pitmaster sandwich. It was all great. The reason for the 4 stars is due to multiple flies buzzing around the table, which constantly had to...More

Good food, big portions. Got there about 4:30 and waited about 3 minutes. Service good. When we left the waiting area was packed with people. Get there early!

My wife and I enjoyed a great meal at Smokin’ Dave’s BBQ. Ribs literally fell off the bone. Cool looking menus as well...made to look like a newspaper.

I ordered the Carolina Pulled Pork Sandwich and it was HUGE. I don't remember BBQ so juicy and flavorful. You didn't even need to use sauce, if you didn't want to. If you like BBQ, eating at Smokin' Dave's is a MUST!!

The BBQ was good, not the best, but probably one of the better restaurants in the area. The prices were reasonable and this place was always packed.

While there was a wait, the food was worth the wait! My husband/I ordered the Dave's Triple meats and shared brisket, sausage, and ribs. Our favorite of those three was the sausage! We also ordered the Smokin' Rings as an appetizer as that we recommended...More

We did not have a reservation, but had no problem getting in a little after the main lunch rush. If you can do a late lunch / early dinner I think you would be fine. I checked the website, but did not see an email address... More

There are a lot of options which might be gluten-free, but you would have to ask to make sure.
