Dave Poe's is in a strip center and not much to look at from the outside, but has a nice atmosphere inside and really good food. It's counter style ordering, pick up when they call your number. I had the "Redneck Lasagna" which was Mac n Cheese and Brunswick stew- it was absolutely delicious!! My son had the brisket plate... More

I had this bbq many years ago at a catered event and was not the least bit impressed, and pretty much forgot about them. My husband suggested we try it out the other night since it is not very far from our house. It had been such a long time since we had it at the event that we figured... More

Everything on the menu was amazing. Haven't found anything I haven't liked yet. Ribs and Mac and Cheese are AWESOME!

Wow, oh wow! Hands down, this place has the BEST macaroni and cheese I have EVER tasted! Yes, their BBQ is delicious as well. We had the scrumptious pulled pork and perfectly moist brisket. You can skip the banana pudding, it tastes like it comes from a mix and not homemade. But that's ok, you really won't have any room... More

Came here with my son as we are weekend enthusiasts. The pork was tender and moist but lacked a little bit of flavor. I think had I gotten a bit more bark it would have been better. The brisket was cut too thick and obviously had been sitting out for a bit. The flavor wasn't bad for the lean part... More

Have eaten at Dave Poe's BBQ serveral times, most recently for take-out for the concert on the Marietta square. The pulled pork and sauce was very good. The mac and cheese got the most raves from our group of 12 people. It was very convienient to serve great BBQ and sides for our big group.

I wanted some BBQ today (Memorial Day) so we went to Dave Poe's since I read so many great reviews on Trip Advisor. We were VERY disappointed as we both had the Chicken Plates and both of your chickens were very fatty and mushy. My wife didn't like her potato salad or green beans either as she said the green...

The large sandwiches are HUGE! and not much more $ than a regular size. Easily can make 3 sandwiches out of one. Great flavor, moist and tender. The Brunswick stew is perfect. We eat there often; food is consistently good.

Came by for lunch with friends. I've eaten here before in the past and liked the BBQ. Today I ordered the pulled pork sandwich with slaw on it and a side of tots, which were nice and crispy. There was a decent amount of pork in the sandwich and it was tasty with and without the house barbecue sauce. Place... More
