David's is the best BBQ in Arlington, bar none. Huge portion sizes with delicious barbecue, and free soft serve to boot. What's not to love?

Go this place once a week for the last few years. Ribs and beef sandwiches are really the best. Highly recommend. I am from Arlington and this is my spot for lunch. Try it.
