Ahh the deliciousness that is BBQ. Dave's certainly does it right. We visited mid-week and were both very pleased. There was no waiting and we were seated immediately. The menu is somewhat limited as you might expect; they serve only entrees that feature some form of BBQ. Options include beef, pork and chicken; I did notice some southern fried catfish, but don't recall any other main course outside these choices. The waitress was friendly, polite and fast. She took our order for drinks and very quickly returned at which time we ordered. No sooner than I began to enjoy my cocktail (bar onsite) our food had arrived. Literally that was like five minutes from the time we ordered. I knocked one point only because it would have been nice to have a few minutes to enjoy the drink and only since I couldn't take a half point was it a whole one. Our order included the Southern Rib Tips (for the wife) and Texas Beef Brisket (for me). Both were absolutely awesome. I was given a free birthday sundae; the thing was huge and definitely meant for two. We both said, at the same time, that we WILL be back. Comfortable and tasteful ambiance with an eclectic sense of décor.
