Food is always good, hot, and timely. Service is always pleasant and not over-bearing. I love the casual atmosphere and it's a great place to have the whole family. Kick back with delicious food. The hot sausage links are so good don't be surprised if it goes missing from your plate. Be ready to guard your huge portion of food... More

We got in for dinner early this night. The Hostess suggested we might want to sit in the bar area where they were still have food specials and Happy Hour. Football was on also. We took her up on her suggestion. It was a great Idea. Rib tips Al Carte were $5.00 and a small French fry was only one... More

We ate here last week and usually visit once or twice a week. Why? They are always consistently good. Food is always promptly served and fresh and we especially like their roast chicken for lunch. Always very moist and tender - we like these guys. The service is also first rate. It's a chain but well run and different in... More

Atmosphere is kind of like a combination of TGIFriday's and Cabela's, but the food is good. Service was also very good, and food came quickly. We had the special that night, which was all you could eat Rib Ends. My favorite sauce was the "Sweet and Sassy", and also liked the Mashed Potatoes and Cole Slaw.

We ate here today and these folks just keep getting better. We are now regulars here and these folks remember their customers. Whether you are new or a long standing customer - hospitality here is unsurpassed. The food is also first rate and they have tremendous variety. Their waitstaff is well trained and always attentive. We've eaten here many times... More

In Denver for work, and was brought here for a "working lunch" by the boss. It's a great place for a business lunch, because the waitstaff keeps you engaged so your boss can't dominate the conversation. Good food, good variety, and great atmosphere. The BBQ style is moist cooked with a sauce, not the dry rubbed/smoked of some other BBQ... More

Famous Dave's is a chain restaurant serving a variety of foods by specializing in the BBQ arena. I will say that the best BBQ one can get is usually from an independent restaurant specializing in the art of BBQ and smoking. Outside of that, I think Famous Dave's is one of the better big chains to get BBQ. Our food... More

The food was definately good. I believe the value was low, based on the prices. We ordered our app's, they came out in good fashion. But about 3 mins later our entree's came out. We said it was really fast, they said sorry and set the food down and walked away. This was very annoying. The portion sizes were good... More

In a strip mall, close to quite a few hotels/motels. No checks accepted. Great menu. The Citrus Grilled Shrimp, with a Honey Chipotle Lime Glaze, was awesome, paired with the best baked beans you've ever had, and french fries. Choice of two sides with the entree. My husband had a rack of 6 ribs, and spent the entire meal oohing... More

We eat here sometimes twice monthly or more. Good BBQ and excellent service. We often visit when it's not crowded and like their menu. They focus on their sauces but we like our meat without sauce - we especially like that we don't get it already covered with sauce. If you like BBQ and home cooked food - I'd say... More
