I had the 1/2 roasted chicken with salad and grilled pineapple. I really enjoyed this. Not a big fan of the sides with the exception of the pineapple corn muffin and salad. If I get BBQ, I get it naked and add my own. I...More

We eat here about 3 times a week. Justyce is a great server. She is very friendly and has a great personality. Krystina is the best hostess. She has a great attitude and very friendly.

Great for chicken, pork and brisket. Love the beans and the chilli from Dave's. Service is always good, beers are ice cold.

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.

We eat here for lunch quite a bit. The 7.77 specials are great. Every time we have eaten here in the last month, Kourtney was our waitress and took excellent care of us. She is one of the best servers we have ever had. She...More
