I have had quite a few meals here and I have never been dis-appointed. The pulled pork BBQ sandwich is a favorite choice. Baby back ribs YUMMY. I have even ordered a cheeseburger and it too was delicious. Lots of side orders to choose from to complete your meal. Did I forget to say they are very affordable too. I... More

nicely prepared with the backs pulled off and no shiners evident. i checked. wonderfully smoked over cooked a tad ribs with a just right pull that had to be tagged off the bone. ribs were meaty, well seasoned and richly sauced. it was perfection on a bone with none of the nonsense. just a simple rack slow smoked with a...

I had lunch there courtesy of my team leader at work. Being that we eat early(11:30am) there was no one there, that immediately drew a flag or so I thought. As the four of us sat to eat, the line grew and grew non-stop. The cashier was a cool guy that broke down everything for us sensing it was out... More

Lot's of places, have trophy's and don't deliver. Dave Poe's is one of those. When people finally figure out that "competition Q" doesn't translate into "everyday Q" of course they SHOULD be disappointed. The pulled pork is adequate, the brisket less so. The sauce is a trickle and I couldn't figure out why someone would rave about the "cheesy wet... More

Dave Poe's is in a strip center and not much to look at from the outside, but has a nice atmosphere inside and really good food. It's counter style ordering, pick up when they call your number. I had the "Redneck Lasagna" which was Mac n Cheese and Brunswick stew- it was absolutely delicious!! My son had the brisket plate... More

like a fine plate of bobbycue you got to bare down on the meat and ease off the potato salad. they manage to do this here despite having some of the best side ever offered in bbq land. off the charts cheesey wet mac n cheese, stew with a zest and hardiness that has that stick- to-itiveness that sticks to...

I had this bbq many years ago at a catered event and was not the least bit impressed, and pretty much forgot about them. My husband suggested we try it out the other night since it is not very far from our house. It had been such a long time since we had it at the event that we figured... More

Wow, oh wow! Hands down, this place has the BEST macaroni and cheese I have EVER tasted! Yes, their BBQ is delicious as well. We had the scrumptious pulled pork and perfectly moist brisket. You can skip the banana pudding, it tastes like it comes from a mix and not homemade. But that's ok, you really won't have any room... More

Came here with my son as we are weekend enthusiasts. The pork was tender and moist but lacked a little bit of flavor. I think had I gotten a bit more bark it would have been better. The brisket was cut too thick and obviously had been sitting out for a bit. The flavor wasn't bad for the lean part... More
