Always greeted with a smile and welcoming attitude. Happy hour specials are always good and service is usually good. Our server Jasmine was very friendly and always coming back to check on us to make sure we were taken care of.

My husband and I haven't been out to Dave's for some time and it was nice. The music is a bit loud but nice. Food and service is good.

We had never been to this restaurant before. We decided to give it a try. I am not a huge fan of BBQ. There are plenty of other options on their menu. Our server explained the myriad of BBQ sauces present on the table. She brought us chips so we could sample the sauces while we waited for our food.... More

I had the best experience and cannot say enough about how wonderful this restaurant treated my family. We were in the mood for good old fashioned BBQ and we were not let down. Thank you to the staff and the cooks for providing a great meal!

This is a really great place to eat. The food is excellent and the service is awesome. This was our first time to eat here, so we got to test the different sauces on homemade potato chips. When our waitress asked which one was our favorite, we were given a bottle to take with us. Very pleasant surprise. And, you... More

Hey folks ~ it's Pork BBQ ~ BBQ ribs ~ BBQ burgers ~ BBQ everything AND it's all wonderful. Can someone please tell me why we have to wait that long when BBQ is already cooked? Those ribs have already been cooked for umpteen hours so what's the holdup? That's my only complaint ~ that and the fact that I... More
