It is after all, Famous Dave's. Probably past it's haydays but still good. The food does not necessarily agree with my wife but I still like it. I love pulled Pork, it is very good but so are the ribs. A Half Rack is plenty enough, the sauces are awesome, one has a great choice of them.

I ate here for lunch. The brisket was average. I have had the pulled pork and it was far better. The service was great and very friendly. I hoped for more on the brisket. I would go again and try something different just on the warm welcome by the staff.

The BBQ, as noted by others, is very good to excellent, and there was a nice beer selection, but what really stood out for me was the outstanding service. As soon as I was seated (which only took a minute), both the manager and a trainee came to my table and welcomed me, told me about about Famous Dave's (history... More

This place has gone downhill over the years. No lineups because people stopped coming and they push you out as fast as they can. Everything is a rush and the food is not that great. The place is not clean it needs a good steam cleaning.

We went to this Famous Dave's BBQ on a Monday night to celebrate one of our daughters 33rd birthday. We were a party of 8 adults and 3 children. We were seated right away as it was not to busy. Our server came right away, was friendly and took our drink orders and brought back a bowl of their home... More

Family friendly, casual atmosphere. Ted gave us the sauce tour, which put my husband at ease immediately because he prefers milder flavors. The St. Louis style half rack was more than enough for us to share. Nice flavor but could have been more tender.

We've been going to Famous Dave's for a while now and I just realized that I'd never reviewed it. It's a chain restaurant located near Chandler Fashion Square. The servings are plentiful and two dinners are large enough for 2 more meals at home. Food is served hot and there is a choice of 8 BBQ sauces at the table... More
