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.
Pros: BBQ sauce, ambience, service, quality, great amount of food for the price, you will never leave hungry
Cons: the BBQ ribs are not the best in the world, but they are the best in Minnesota
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.
