I have eaten here a few times but always seem to get something I don't care for. I ordered pulled chicken sandwich but hold the BBQ. I like to add my own sauce so it isn't too gloppy. It came with BBQ sauce or they...More

The fries have been a reason to go to Dave’s. They complemented the sauces wonderfully. I’m sad to say; the fries are gone. What is left are not the fries of old and are not good. RIP.

Brought the family out to eat on the weekend. Was pretty busy but got set pretty fast. The food here is great with a wide selection. Service was very good. We have eaten here several times. Never a disappointing stop.

Service was attentive, food is typical food chain barbecue but none the less tasty. I love Dave's ribs, slow cooked BBQ sauce. The meat combo or the famous dustbin lid, I had to make two visits on this trip.

I would never willingly go back to Dave's unless it was the only place in town to eat. Like most chains, it has a nice decor and acceptable service and overpraises the quality of food. They also charge like they have good food - but...More

If you don't mind BBQ sauce under your fingernails, their ribs are very tasty. I do the baked chicken dinner with broccoli and a grilled pineapple spear: healthier and less messy. Service almost always good and a covered outside area to enjoy.
