I had a brisket sandwich and Mac n cheese. The brisket was very good but the bun was very soggy. I didn’t care for the Mac n cheese it was way to sweet. The staff was very friendly.

If you love smoked meat, you need to stop by. Besides the expected pork, chicken, brisket, ribs, they also have smoked turkey legs, wings, and lamb. Oh and Thursdays and Fridays ribeye and pork chop sandwiches. So yummy!

Excellent BBQ here at Grillin Dave's. Found this on my way to Tom's Ice Cream parlor. The meats were tender and the sauces are rich and savory. The cole slaw is a bit soupy, but some people love that.
