Great selection, friendly staff and a lively environment make this a fun place to go whenever we're in the mood for good, old fashioned BBQ. This place has a fantastic bar with incredible specials. Every Wednesday they have wings for $0.50 each and margaritas for $3.95. Leave room for the brownie dessert, topped with warm fudge and vanilla ice cream.

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
