I've got to hand it to Famous Dave's. I really enjoy their taco lunch special. I know, taco's are not what you think about when you think BBQ. Give it a try and you will see what I am talking about. You have three choices, pulled pork, beef brisket, or fried catfish. I've had all three, but the catfish is... More

Whether it is appetizers, sandwiches, or platters of food, Famous Dave's can definitely deliver the goods. Amaira was an excellent server and her immediate supervisor, Jennifer, was a real delight, too. When your drink glass was 2/3 empty, a new one suddenly appeared. Want a special variation of a menu item? Amaira can make that happen with a big smile.... More

I was pleasantly surprised to see one heck of an improvement in the meals at dave's. I have refrained from visiting for about five years. It was the best BBQ I have had In a long time. I thoroughly enjoyed very bite.

The wait was a little long.. And judging by the people waiting we should have said no thanks.. But we wanted to try.. And I was very disappointed.. Every time they serve a "feast meal", they walk through saying "feast" over and over and in the most unenthusiastic "they're making me" kind of tone.. That was annoying.. Our food was... More

I've eaten at this and several other local BBQ restaurants several times over the last few years, and this one certainly ranks among the best. I often go with a group of retirees who all worked together, and we are looking for places that are, if not quiet, at least not so noisy that we can't converse. When we entered... More

Worth a visit if you like ribs. We had the family feast so got a taste of ribs, chicken, pulled pork & more. You can ask to swap sides so we also got some veggies. So much food we got to take some home as well. Good service. Great atmosphere.
