This place is clean. The service is very friendly. If you are looking for good quality BBQ that won't break the bank the little hidden place is it.

Brisket was really good. The sausage was very good. The beans were excellent put a lot of of the trimmings from the meat into the beans which was delicious. It was not too overpriced.

Regularly on Monday's there's a good chance we can be found at this establishment. The staff and management maintains a very clean and friendly staffed establishment, additionally the food is pretty good.

Came to Taylor on a Sunday to eat at L. Mueller's only to find they are closed on Sunday. Had a list of BBQ joints in hand and headed to Davis Grocery & Market. Very nice man and woman were working and we (6) men were the only customers at about 1:00 pm. The mutton was excellent, everything else was... More

The brisket is properly done, with a great smoke ring and a good moisture level. But what sets this joint apart is the mutton. Taken right of the ribs, it is smokey and slightly gamey, just the way mutton should be. The rancho beans are also delicious.

if you want great tasting brisket, ribs, or sausage then head over to Davis Grocery & Barbeque. Now this place doesn't have the atmosphere of Mueller's across the tracks but the food and service are much better.

There are other highly rated BBQ joints in Taylor, but Davis' is some of the best in town and mostly unknown except for the neighborhood. It's a small grocery store, but the food is good! It's worth a visit.

First off, this is directly in response to a Taylor resident who, in a review of Louie Mueller barbecue, said this place was incredible. To that person I say, you have absolutely no barbecue education whatsoever. Perhaps it is because you like dry brisket that has absolutely no flavor and mostly made the day before, or ribs that are so... More
