Our authentic BBQ starts in a live-wood smoker stoked with genuine hickory logs. Our pitmasters hand-rub the meats with a custom blend of spices and cook for hours to extract the natural flavors. We source the highest quality meats and trim them up like we’re in a competition and hand-rub them with the freshest seasonings available to create mouthwatering experiences! In addition to our BBQ and grilled meats, our menu features a selection of salads, sandwiches, side items, and made-from-scratch desserts.

We got seated quickly thanks to our reservation but our server took so long to come over. we had to ask another waiter to send our waiter over. He was never in sight unless he was bringing us our drinks/food. I got the brisket sandwich and it was so fatty. I was actually grossed out by it. The fries it came with were good and so was the corn muffin. Also, the restaurant was freezing. I had to keep my jacket on the whole time and couldn’t wait to leave and get into my heated car

Our first server was awful. I’m not sure if she was slammed or didn’t want to take a table of 4 women. Three of whom are former severs, and in all my years of dining I’ve never asked for a different server until FD. Our second server was very nice and apologetic for his colleague, and although he was good the restaurant was working against him. The drinks, even at a discount were subpar, the food was very good but came out warm. The manager was apologetic, and did comp our first round of drinks it wasn’t the best overall dining experience.

The service here is beyond slow. The food is good but the staff generally ignores you once they bring your meal . Took 15 mins for staff to take our order after we sat down, another 10 minutes to bring us 2 sodas.

The hostess was friendly but unsure of where to seat us. They were renovating and the decor wasn’t good. Wires were hanging down from ceiling. The server took several minutes to greet us and ask us for our drink orders. He was very nice though. The menus were extremely dirty as well as the booth seats. I had to wipe the seats with paper towels. Food was good

The place was undergoing renovations and looked terrible. Even the sections that had been renovated still looked bad. Service was slow. The food was just ok. Drinks watered down. Flies all around. Dirty tables sat uncleared for the entire time I was there. Not enough staff. Poorly managed place. EAT SOMEWHERE ELSE!

Food was great but service was terrible. The restaurant was not crowded but the kitchen was backed up and everything took forever. Table was not cleared in a timely manner. At the end of the meal, we ordered coffees and a few desserts but after half an hour of waiting, the waitress came and told us that they were all out of coffee mugs and we could take the coffee in to go cups for no charge. We waited another 10 minutes for this to happen, and then couldn’t take it any more and decided to leave. They really need to get their act together!!!!

Place was dirty. We sat there 15 minutes and no one even came over. It wasn’t even busy. As we were leaving I told the hostess no one came over to us and she just said OK... she could care less.

The food and drinks were great, however, our entrees were served before our appetizers, which wasn’t very appropriate. We were basically done by the time it arrived.

It’s wasn’t as good as I had expected. Place was not the cleanest either and kind of worn down. Needs to be remodeled. Service was good though. I don’t think I would go back again. I’ve had tastier ribs and cheaper at a smaller chain restaurant by my house.

First thing, food was great. No complaints on the quality of the food we ordered.

Service was abysmal. We were seated relatively quick. It took about 15 minutes to get glasses of water. The waiters and waitresses had come several time to our table, with only one drink at a time. Why we had multiple people serving our table beats me but clearly there were some other issues. The restaurant wasn't over crowded, and there were multiple times I saw wait staff taking the term "waiting" quite literally.

I'll eat Dave's again, but on my own terms. No way in a thousand years would I sit down here to eat and waste time being waited on, but because the food is so yummy, I'll pick up when I can.

This was my first time and I will not rush to go back again. The service was horrible we were in one of the rooms off to the side and once the waiter left we did not see him again. We asked for butter for our corn muffin and it was frozen solid, how do they expect you to spread it on the muffin. They also need to serve wet wipes when you are eating with your fingers. We were there and it wasn't busy imagine what it would be like if it was busy? I really hope that the manager reads this review.

So this is definitely a place to eat with your hands and lick your fingers. We were there on a Tuesday and the L'il Wilbur meal was more than adequate for a hungry 5 year old - and free on Tuesdays. Lots of choices and good sized portions!

Comfort food to the max! Don't wear fancy clothes and be ready to lick your fingers...definitely not a place for a first date but great for the family. Kids eat free on Tuesdays and there is always something to feed them. Generous portions and who has room for dessert?

It took 20 min for a waiter to come to us. Luckily the hostess noticed and grabbed our drinks for us and a waiter. After that everything went smooth and we had a great time. So started frustrated but ended wonderful!!!
