We were looking for barbecue and stumbled on Dave's. It was busy for father's day but service was very fast. Ribs were really good. Roasted chicken was a bit greasy but very flavorful. I loved the chopped pork. Good healthy portions. Casual atmosphere.

Great ribs and chicken. I am not sure if their fish and chips was just a seasonal offering, but it is also quite good. I prefer carry out as the restaurant is not very pleasant.

We have been here twice. The first time it tasted quite good. Therefore, we went back a couple months later - it was NOT good. The meat was kind of cold and VERY fatty. The ribs were very fatty and tuff this time too. We likely will not return. Too bad, because I went to one in Woodbridge, VA that was always very good.

There are a handful of restaurants that we frequently order from on a monthly basis. Famous Dave's in Oakton, VA is one of them. The Georgia Chopped Pork and coleslaw is my favorite while others prefer the Country-Roasted Chicken.

For family carry out we always purchase the whole country-roasted chicken with coleslaw and corn bread.

Take note that we only carry out or use them for catering I can not comment on the restaurant.

Cant speak more highly about this outpost of Dave's. You can't go wrong eating in, carry out, or just a cold brew at the lovely bar. A real neighborhood treasure.
