After having so-so BBQ on this trip we were blown away by their BBQ. My husband smokes his own and he was impressed with Dave's. In fact we took home what was left, a rare hapening for us and enjoyed it again.

This is our 2nd visit to eat there, the food and service was great. We had dinner for 2, portions are huge. Go hungry and relax while watching the game or just visit, can't wait to go back!

I was seated quickly and had good service. Had a local draft beer that was really good. Chopped pork was good not dry. They had several different sauces to choose from if needed.
