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

Seated promptly by hostess, Server brought draft beer (good microbrew)selection promptly. Spouse and I split the "Feast for Two". Everything...brisket,chicken,pork ribs and corn on the cob, beans and coleslaw were delicious. Service was prompt. Enough for a second day easily for the 2 of us. Have yet to have a bad meal at this chain. We will be back!

Had a great lunch at a good price. Always stop when I'm in town and will continue to do so. The server we had was also very good.

Famous Dave's is a typical corporate barbecue place - heavy on the barbecue sauce to cover up the otherwise tasteless selection of meats. On the plus side, the bar is nice and well stocked and they can handle a large group - but I wouldn't suggest going for the food alone.
