We had eaten here before and not been wowed. This time we had the chicken lunch special and it was delicious! Flavorful and falling off the bone. The green beans were good too, though the coleslaw was so so. They have not improved the one...More

All the other BBQ places were closed on Monday and so David's was the only place open. Upon walking in at 1145am, there was a line so I thought I was in good company. I had the double meat plate for $12 selecting pork ribs...More

While this place looked good from Main Street, it has terrible food. The BBQ sauce was the worst I have ever had. I got a sausage sandwich with the strangest bread, I ate about half of it before giving up. Even the onions in the...More
