Good place to rest

Good place to rest and have appetizers. The rack of ribs and sauces are great. Ask the waitress for a demo of the sauces for which ones to use, it is very entertaining.

I went there for lunch and when I received my order, the fries were cold. It seems the waitress was not as attentive as she could have been since it took a while to get our food.

Famous Sam's is a typical sports bars, lots of TV's with sporting events. A big pleasant surprise was the food and service. My wife and I both had delicious burgers and terrific seasoned fries. We both dine out a lot and have had tons of burgers. Famous Sam's burgers were clearly in out top 5 ever for flavor, great ingredients... More

Lots of beers on tap, and all of the regulars seem to know each other. But for a sports bar, they lack nice TV's... The service is typically very good - your drinks will never be empty!
