We had eaten here before and not been wowed. This time we had the chicken lunch special and it was delicious! Flavorful and falling off the bone. The green beans were good too, though the coleslaw was so so. They have not improved the one choice of sauce- bright orange and blah, but the chicken was good and moist- no... More

I agree with all of the negative comments above. We had brisket/sausage plate and a brisket taco. The best thing we had was jalapeño sausage and the taco. The brisket was very tough. Even I can make a tender brisket. The aroma smelled like the brisket had been smoked, yet I could not taste that it was. Very nice people... More

I ordered a lb of brisket. Absolutely no flavor. It was tender, but no crust, no flavor. I think they broil it because they sure don't smoke it. Potato Salad was bland. How can you mess up potato salad. Only one bbq sauce and it was bland. Service was ok. Nice looking building inside but hopefully it will be used... More

My buddy wanted to try some local barbecue and this was the only place around. It was lunch time but they were all out of chicken. Really?! Since I don't eat pork or beef, I ordered 2 sides "Green Beans" and "Potato Salad". The beans were from a can, swimming in some vile tasting liquid with pieces of bacon! Nice... More

When I think BBQ, I think Smokey meaty goodness. The meat had zero smokey flavor and the smell of wood was absent from the air. Despite the lack of Smokey indicator of mouthwatering goodness, I ordered. I knew better, but did it anyway and was disappointed. I could have doused the meat with a good sauce and called it an...

I had hoped for some nice smoky pork ribs but was greatly disappointed. The meat was tender but was not smoked. It lacked flavor and the BBQ sauce was very bad compared to my own and others that I've had. It needed more tomato paste or ketchup, in my opinion. I ended up using ketchup instead of sauce on the...

Deli style ordering BBQ joint on the west end. A little pricey for BBQ but not surprising in Fredericksburg. Lots of locals. Had the BBQ Sandwich with Brisket...Was pretty good. Cole slaw was excellent. Sausage was good but the casing was hard. Good flavor, not spicy. Ribs were good. Was between average and very good.

All the other BBQ places were closed on Monday and so David's was the only place open. Upon walking in at 1145am, there was a line so I thought I was in good company. I had the double meat plate for $12 selecting pork ribs and beef brisket. I only got three pieces of rib but much more of the... More

While this place looked good from Main Street, it has terrible food. The BBQ sauce was the worst I have ever had. I got a sausage sandwich with the strangest bread, I ate about half of it before giving up. Even the onions in the condiment bar were cut in a way that you had to pull them apart with... More

Fredricksburg was was very crowded the week after Christmas and after waiting close to a hour the night before we decided to try some carry out BBQ from David's and it was a very good choice.
