Excellent Barbecue dishes. Everything very fresh and made there via slow cooking. The cornbread served with the basket is a nice addition. I also add the Texas Pit Sauce to everything from the myriad of bottles put on the table.

Our family went for a Saturday dinner (my mom's birthday). She really likes Famous Daves. We were very happy with our roast chicken dinners. My wife had the catfish platter and she was also happy with how that turned out. Our meals & sides turned out well prepared. The roast chicken very tender, moist and fall off the bone good.... More

Went for lunch on Memorial day. Not bad but not the best. Service was friendly, décor and atmosphere OK, floors sticky, ribs cooked OK but were uninteresting. Most non-chain BBQ places were closed for the day so resorting to a chain to fulfill the BBQ craving...

I just had a meal of the newly advertised "burnt ends" that look so good on the television advertisement. In reality they are small, 1/2 inch cubes of meat that offer no inspiration of eating good barbecue. I wouldn't order them again. For the price of two orders of the burnt ends, instead, treat yourself to a rack of baby... More

Dave's is always a good choice. Great barbeque and the restaurant is always clean. I always look forward to stopping in for a quick lunch or dinner.

Went there about 9 PM this week for their burnt ends special. They were cleaning their grill and had to reassemble it for my order. The burnt ends were neither burnt nor ends. Had quite a bit of fat on the pieces. I'll pass in the future.

I love BBQ ribs! Famous Daves makes them like I make them at home( at least they taste that good)! Everything I have tried from there I have enjoyed. All the side dishes are very tasty and the type I grew up on "down home'. The green beans with bacon is my favorite side while my wife likes the cole... More

Famous Dave's is good for both dining in and take out. The Family Feast platter is especially good for take-out. Portions are generous with either option - dining in or take-out. We've always been happy with the quality of the food as well as the selection.

Love BBQ. Famous Dave's offers plenty of choices. My favorite is the 3-meat combo. I usually select beef brisket, chopped pork and roasted chicken. It comes with sweet corn muffin, and a side, where I choose famous wedge fries. The soda is good, but add a scoop of ice cream and you have a float for just a few cents... More
