“Tough Meat”
Reviewed 21 May 2013

I really don't understand how all of these postive reviews get to be on here. I have eaten at Dave's a few times over the last 5-10 years and only ONCE did I get ribs that actually fell off the bone. Most of the time I need a knife to cut the meat or I have to naw it off as it is VERY tough and NOT well smoked. The chicken tastes old, the colse slaw is awful, the corn bread crumbles apart so you end up eating crumbs, the corn on the cob is tough and dry, and the so called pulled pork is tough and flavorless. The wait staff are ALWAYS rude and never seem to come by until after your dinner so you better have your liquids up front cuz the wait staff will not refill your drink.
I won't eat there again.

“Doesn't fail”
Reviewed 26 April 2013

I'm sure if you've had one Dave's, you've had them all. Good food, and a great wait staff. The folks there are great, the food is really good, and the kids love going there. It's a win win.

“Yummy Value”
Reviewed 15 August 2012

Nice dinner menu but a great lunch menu--don't forget to look at the back of the menu to find awesome deals. Great taste but hard to choose what to eat with so many choices.
