Big Dave's Famous BBQ & Catering Co., headed by the charismatic David O. Jones, brings a unique blend of Texas-style barbecue to Greenville, South Carolina. For over two decades, Big Dave's mouth-watering barbecue, meticulously prepared with his special blend of herbs and spices, has been the talk of the town among professional athletes, business people, politicians, and the general public alike.

Having begun his culinary journey as the Executive Chef for the Dallas Cowboys and later owning a restaurant in North Dallas, Dave returned to his hometown of Greenville in 1997. His restaurant, located on 1618 White Horse Road, quickly became a local hotspot for barbecue enthusiasts, enticing passerby with the irresistible aroma of tender meat and hickory wafting from the outdoor cooker.
