First time at a Famous Dave's and it was excellent! The service was outstanding and the food was over the top! We drove 45 minutes to get there and will without a doubt will do it again. Thanks Dave!

Every time my husband and I have a hankerin' for some good old fashion BBQ, we head to Famous Dave's. While the prices per meal are adequate, we usually by the meal platter for two. It allows us to have a good variety of meats and a tin left over for lunch the next day. The meats are tender and... More

So, we have been to many different Famous Dave's and this one is just as good. We had a variety of meat with a feast for 2-3, among other orders of ribs and chicken strips. The only complaint with the food was the bbq chips were too hard and the chicken strips had too much powdery season. We had 5... More

We went for lunch and were seated right away. The staff was super nice, the decor is very cute and the food was great - four in our party and everyone loved what they ordered.

My first trip to eat in at Famous Dave's was one I will never forget. We were a group of four just wanting to taste some good ole bar-b-que, and we were not disappointed. However, when the server brought our meal to the booth, it was in a linen-lined galvanized trash can top, what an eye opener. The food, though,... More

Why is it that restaurants won't or can't bring your food piping hot? This is a nice place and the staff are very friendly but when the food arrived, it looked as though it had been sitting on the plate for 10 minutes. I sent it back but when it returned it still wasn't hot enough. Barbecue should be sizzling... More

Its difficult to say anything other than good things about Famous Dave's. Service, food, cleanliness, and price are all very good. I guess the only thing I could say is that it might be a tiny bit boring because there are not surprises. Most important, when restaurants were closing down in the infamous downturn, Famous Dave's was always full. Now... More
