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

I have only been to the Palmdale location twice. Should have gone with my first experience and avoided the second. First trip wasn’t bad except for the chemical smoke flavoring on the brisket, yes should have been a signal but everything else was good (not great). Second visit was a waste of time and money. I had the beef ribs... More

It's really hard to find good BBQ in the AV, Famous Dave's is a good solution!If you're not in the mood to dine in, call it in and pick it up to eat at home.

Very good food. Love the spicy sauces. Used to like order the Cod dinner when they would serve it with their own tarter sauce that had a spicy bite. They have eliminated and now use what taste like bottle tarter sauce that is tangy with a spicy BBQ Fish! Does not go together. Other than that food is Good. At... More

This is a great place for BBQ!. Ribs, shredded pork, hot links....all good. Cornbread is tasty, coleslaw is good too. Bread pudding is very good. I disagree with other reviews that the food is too salty. Think that is a matter of taste, but was not too salty for me. Also, disagree with other reviews about not bringing out the... More

Love their food. Always good portions and good products. They don't give out the chips at the beginning like other famous Dave's unless you request. At the other restaurants the server comes and does a presentation with the sauces and chips not here. Had a problem with hostess. After she knew that we had a coupon she passed us off... More
