Try just a little harder

We were a party of seven We told the hostess 6-9 would be there. They set up the table. but would not seat we three until “at least half” were there. So, though the table was ready, we had to wait in the small area until two more arrived, about 10 min. I ordered the two meat lunch combo, ribs... read more

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
