This is a really good BBQ place that is family owned. The sides are good and serve yourself so you can choose how much to get. After your great meal, there is serve yourself soft-serve ice cream. Always an incentive to get the kids to eat. My place of choice for a home cooked meal.

My mouth is watering just thinking of a chopped BBQ sandwich plus 2 sides from David's for under $10. What a deal! I am very particular when it comes to BBQ. I want it lean, moist and tender with lots of sauce. David's is all of the above. They do not skimp on portions of their meat or their sides.... More

Flew in to Dallas for vacation. Stopped at David's since it was near the DFW airport. We ordered sliced fatty brisket with onion rings. The brisket was very good, moist and flavorful. The onion rings were a very pleasant surprise, they were crunchy and delicious. The folks behind the counter were great people, friendly and welcoming. The prices were a... More

Brisket is tender and juicy. Ribs are excellent! I order sliced turkey to take home for another great meal.

Brisket is soo tender, but the ribs are to die for. Don't forget the ham. I often buy pounds of the ham for sandwiches at home. Sauce is good but not overpowering. It lets the taste of the meat shine through

Stopped by before a football game at AT&T stadium. Brisket is excellent. Ham just delicious. We also liked the ribs a lot. Limited side dishes. Decor is very basic but people extremely friendly. Reasonable prices. Would definitely come back again.

I had a half order of ribs and it was a huge portion. They were very tender and delicious. I had fried okra and it was great. The potato salad was great. I would definitely go back. Everyone that worked there was very nice.

This was on of the best BBQ sandwich I have ever had. I got a mix of chopped beef and turkey sandwich. It was juicy and delicious. Some of the best fried okra ever, super hot and fried well done, just the way okra should be. I will be back.
