3rd time there and 3rd time let down. My chicken was just supposed to be grilled and it tasted like BBQ sauce badly which doesn't go with Cesar dressing at all. The muffin was nothing but, cold mush. The other 2 times the catfish was horrible! The service was really good though.

Don't come here too often due to our limited budget but we were celebrating. My wife got the bbq chicken sandwich. It had the right amount of sauce and was nice and hot. It came with wedge fries which were a good flavor and had some substance. I had the 4 ribs with mac cheese and broccoli. While I prefer... More

We haven't eaten at Dave's for a couple years. We got enticed by an email blast. We ordered their house specialty (besides ribs) the beef brisket dinner. After trimming off the fat layer we were left with about half the order. Cornbread was not served with either butter or honey. Seemed like all the sides were served with a little... More

Met friends from Gladstone, Woodburn and Milwaukie for a girl's lunch out. Enjoy the variety of food and we love to take home the leftovers. Serving portions are good sized. Service is prompt and friendly.

First time I've eaten there. It was good. Fast. Wish I would have know the mac-n-cheese had jalapeño peppers in it, I wouldn't have order it. The homemade bbq chips were very good. Fun place. Friendly staff.

Stopped at one of our favorites on the way to a soccer game. Ate in the bar and had great service as well as prompt food delivery. We ended up needing a to go box and made our game in a timely manner!

Love this place! Best BBQ we have found. Love to get the feasts. Service is always good, but the ribs set the standard. Once you have been to Dave's you will be disappointed everywhere else..

I have eaten here several time over the last month and I have to say I really like it. The staff have always been very pleasant and the service has been great. I eat at the bar as I am on my own so waiting for a table has never been an issue for me. Happy hour is something like... More

It is not cheap but their BBQ is so good. Ribs and pulled pork are amazing. The mac and cheese and corn muffin sides are the best.
