    These roasted wings are great. Definitely giving anyone else a run for their money. Worth trying and testing out different sauces to see which ones you prefer.

    The smoked wings are really good. Plus there are a number of sauces you can choose from to apply to your wings. But what I like best, the wings taste good without any sauce added.

    Never had good brisket out side of Texas till I found D.B.A. And the ribs and pastrami are also first rate!

    Sure, you could buy bottled BBQ sauce, but making your own is so much better. Join Matt Coggin, owner and pit master, for a class on making your own special sauce. Read more

    The beast of a sandwich is called the Archie Bunker. This delicious monster of a sandwich is smoked pulled pork on Texas Toast, topped with mac and cheese, sweet BBQ sauce and cheddar cheese. Read more

    Take your pick: how many wings can you score? 50,100 or 250? All wings are seasoned and smoked with your choice of plain, buffalo, Hotlanta, burnin’ Sherman, habanero-mustard, and a lot more! Read more

    The Archie bunker never lets me down. The house cocktails are pretty solid but they aren't that strong.

    Can't go wrong with deviled eggs & the St. Louis ribs, but if the smoked sausage is available, definitely get it.

    Best sides are collards and creamed corn.

    Ask for Shaka and all will be right in the world.

    Boiled peanuts are kinda gnarly- but everything else is great! I recommend the Archie Bunker and the Jimbo Burger. Mac and cheese is also delicious!

    Ansley Barfield · April 3, 2014

    Always good. But seem to be out of an item every time we go there. But will return over and over

  • Hey J.

    Sundays smoked fried chicken dinner special is hands down the best around. 3pc meal for $15. And worth every penny!!

    Hey Jay · January 19, 2014

    The brisket is amazing with Bryan's tangy bbq sauce and a Jailhouse Breakout Stout!

    Ask for Rebecca.

    Pulled chicken salad is hearty & delish. It's not on the menu anymore, but you can request it. I use the sweet BBQ sauce as my dressing instead of the one it comes with :)

    Heather McDonald · July 12, 2013
  • J Scott O.

    The beef brisket is amazing!

    J Scott Owens · July 12, 2013

    Try some moonshine. Just like grandpa used to make.

    Jeremy Porter · July 11, 2013
  • Jeremy P.

    Get the grilled creamed corn or sweet potater tots as one of your sides, they're yummy.

    Jeremy Porter · July 5, 2013

    Try the Fried Pickles And Bacon With Ranch - A piece of the deep field bacon - good god. Stunning.

    Chris Fuller · May 16, 2013
  • Rhea

    Great Mac and cheese and Texas margs but the brisket was mostly fat.

    Rhea · May 5, 2013
  • Jason S.

    This place is awful. From moronic host, to mediocre service and sub par food. Why did the Gator club pick DBA?

    Jason Small · March 31, 2013
  • James D.

    Try the smoked lemon pepper wings! 2 words: LIFE CHANGING!

    James Davis · March 9, 2013
  • Tereance P.

    Taste like BBQ!

    Tereance Puryear · March 4, 2013
  • Jaxon L.

    I rate DBA at about 7 out of 10. The ribs were tender and well seasoned, if a bit scorched. Greens were watery and underseasoned. Smoked wings were good. They forgot to give me my mac&cheese (grrrr).

    Jaxon Lee · March 3, 2013
  • Keith N.

    Best bbq in town

    Keith Ngo · March 2, 2013

    Foods good! Price can get away from you but hey Eat Local right? I personally didn't like the spiked root beer at all and I love root beer! :-( BUT over all a great place to eat!

    Awesome heated patio in the winter, with TV's!
