Dissapointing – I've tried many BBQ restraunts around the Twin Cities and for some reason I keep finding myself coming back here. Not because its good but because I keep telling myself that the next time it'll finally satisfy me. But every time I do I come out dissapointed. I don't get where all the positive reviews come from! The ribs are tougher than it needs to be, its not slow smoked and the rub they used isn't too good. The saving grace for the ribs is their sauce which I totally love. I've tried their beef brisket as well and its not that great either.
If you are not in Kansas City, eat at Dave's! – I grew up in and near Kansas City. I have a pretty good idea of what great tomato - based BBQ sauce should taste like. Dave's is the best North of Kansas City. The meat is cooked pretty well, too. Although, I would suggest the brisket or pulled pork if you are a die hard KC ribs fan and want that meat to fall right off the bone. Sorry Dave, but your ribs are not cooked THAT great. However if you are have a craving for BBQ ribs in Minnesota, Dave's is the best you will find.
Finger-licking ribs this good just can't be Northern barbecue. – In Short
Eat at this chain and you'll swear the Mason-Dixon line moved to Saskatchewan. The weathered-looking wooden walls of Dave's shacks are decked out with roadside signs and cute pig paintings. You stand in line to order, then take a numbered wooden pig to your table. The sandwiches and platters (including Texas beef brisket and Georgia chopped pork) are filling, but favorites include a mess of St. Louis-style ribs, sticky with Dave's own award-winning sauce.
YUMMYYYYYYYYY – The service was fast. (Order at the counter and they bring it to you) I ordered the Hickory Chicken Breast with fries. Very good - It was pretty big which was good cause I was HUNGRY! I especially like that they don't put the barbeque sauce on it and have different varieties on the table for you to put on your own. My boyfriend and I shared a Hot Fudge Kahlua Brownie. IT was EXCELLENT. Very good food! Prices are reasonable considering you get a big portion.
