This Dave's location has been closed since early June. At first, there was a sign outside saying closed temporarily however it was in the newspaper that it is permanently CLOSED. This is confirmed by all the signage having been removed.

I've tried Dave's BBQ several times but no more. Poor service, dry ribs, and unresponsive management. Since they are a franchise now instead of being run by the corporate office, things have gotten worse. I'll go next door to Carraba's and get a consistently excellent...More

One thing a chain restaurant should be is consistent, especially in terms of food. This location is very good one visit and very bad another visit. Same with service here. Sometimes some items are great while others are just not good. A recent visit is...More
