“WE WILL NEVER RETURN...”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

This restaurant smelled good BUT.... it wasn't.
We order the brisket which was very dry and tasteless, mac n cheese which tasted like the boxed kind and the beans which came right out of a can. We also ordered a side salad (pic attached) and
plate was so small it was a joke!! The blue cheese burger we got was atrocious. The blue cheese was most definitely spoiled. They only thing that tasted good was the hushpuppies. The waitress was so rude while we tried to decide what to order and never said a word to us. We were the only ones in the restaurant and that should've been our sign not to eat there. BUYER BEWARE

“Very good BBQ in Dawsonville”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

I have not been to the original Big D's, but this location serves up some very good BBQ. It's just west of the Dawsonville town square on Highway 53, next to the Exxon station. It's a fast food type layout (you walk in and order and they either call your number or bring you your food). Service was friendly and quick. Food was very good and reasonably priced. Restaurant decor wasn't great, but wasn't bed. Really, my only bad comment is that the restroom was pretty dimly lit.

“This restaurant is not in Dawson, Ga.”
Reviewed 24 December 2013

Sorry to say, but Big D's restaurant is not in Dawson, Ga. The address on here is Hwy. 53, and there is not Hwy. 53 in our area. Being I had to select ratings to post this, I posted positively, I want people to not be misled looking for this place, as this is the purpose of TripAdvisor.

Try the brownie plate, but it's all good. Ribs are excellent. Good friendly service. Great t-shirts also.
