Not really a dine in, but good bbq no matter where you eat. The prices are very competitive, and the service is friendly.

We have been ordering from TD's for over 15 years and always do take-out. We especially enjoy their BBQ and ribs.

I arrived at 12 noon and all they had ready was pulled pork...? Which I have to say was pretty dry. I will say that the man at the counter was very friendly.
