Once again, Weekly
voters have honored this national chain as the local champion of barbecue. Not that this coronation by the residents of our fair city is a bad move; opinions on barbecue are always varied--and when you're seated at Dave's, the grub undeniably looks and tastes marvelous. Serving up the hat trick of barbecued meats (ribs, brisket and pulled pork), Dave's doles out a variety of sauces for you to slather on your meat, from Rich and Sassy to Devil's Spit. The loaded baked potato topped with a smoking portion of Georgia chopped pork is a gluttonous lunch treat; devour it with a smile.
