Smokin' Daves is very casual, very friendly, and fun! They have bar-b-qued everything, lots of beers on tap (tasting welcomed I found). We had fun sitting at the bar visiting with other tourists, although I am sure the locals love it too.

We were a party of 15 and they had to put us in two tables because there wasn't one big enough, but the restaurant is very casual and we visited each other's table often. Great atmosphere, and the food was delicious. Try the fried pickles!

We were horseback riding and thinking about a place to go for lunch when our guide recommended this place. The kids' mind was made up: we are having barbecue after riding.
And it did not disappoint us. But the wait could have been brutal if we were there later, so I believe that if you get there between 2 and 4 HINT: You can call ahead and put your name in the wait list. They do not mind that. They just do not take reservations. They are also very quick. Flavor was excellent. And kids and adults will find something there they will like. We highly recommend it.

We went to Smokin' Dave's BBQ after a busy day of hiking and horseback riding. The food was good and plentiful! I would suggest calling ahead(30 minutes) for the "call ahead" placement of your name on the waiting list as there is usually a substantial wait for tables. (They don't take reservations!) Also, we found out that the closing time on their website is not always the true time that they close....call for summer hours because they sometimes stay open later than they have posted.

We tried to go a night, but we were hungry and the wait was over an hour so we went somewhere else. Came back the next day for lunch and it was obvious why the line was so long. Best BBQ I've had in a long time. If you go (other than for an early lunch), be prepared to wait -- but, it is soooo worth it.
