Great parking, and you immediately smell barbecue and smoke before you enter. That's a good sign.
The restaurant itself was cute - with wood wainscot paneling and lots of "lake" decor and fishing stuff...which I love. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable...and it was only her 2nd day!
What we ordered:
Appetizer: Burnt Ends
These are supposed to be the tips of the brisket. I was hoping for them to be more burnt, and found them a bit too fatty. Highlight of the dish for me were the onion straws and "hell fire" pickles.
Georgia Chopped Pork for me
This was a mound of pulled pork atop a huge buttered slice of Texas toast accompanied by two sides of my choosing - I selected the firecracker beans (Green Beans w bacon - deli-sh) and Mac N Cheese. The Mac N Cheese was a bit spicy and had corn in it! I never eat Mac N Cheese at home so this little side dish was truly like a heaven sent cheesy treat. Corn bread muffin was as good as any cupcake I have ever had.
To me, one of the fun parts of BBQ is all the sauce that you can try.
|Texas Pit and Rich N Sassy were my favorites. Wilbur's Revenge was so hot, I had to mix it with another sauce to tolerate it. Great flavor though!|
Ribs N Meat for Danny
Ribs and meat plus two sides in this meal. I had to take a picture. I just had to.
This is no joke. This sausage was easily as long as my forearm from fingertip to elbow. That's about 14 inches people. The color? The shape? I was dying laughing. I know it's immature, but it was just so HUGE. Ribs were pretty good and the sausage was, no surprise, delicious. Beans and slaw great accompaniments. Every meat had a great but not overpowering smoky flavor.
I would definitely go to Dave's again or get it take out at least. I took more than half my meal home so you get huge portions. Get the sausage when you go. If nothing else, just for the shock of the size.
