Was staying Denver on business trip and decided to give this place a chance. I'm not a big fan of BBQ but the rest of my party was. Overall my food was very good. It is priced very reasonable ! Staff was very friendly and tried hard to make everything right for us. Nice bar area.

Stopped in for dinner for the first visit ever to a Famous Daves Barbeque Atmosphere is good, lots of old gear on the walls and ceilings and the staff very friendly. The food was great, I had the 1/3rd of a rack of St. Louis Style ribs and the meat fell off the bone and was delicious. Only complaint that... More

Having spent years in Kansas City I am wary of BBQ that is, well, off the grid (far away from BBQ meccas like Memphis, KC, Carolina). Famous Dave's is not bad, but it's just not real good either. They have a large assortment of sauces on the table but that generally means the place is throwing in the towel on... More

We just happened to come across this restaurant as we looked around the area. The staff were very nice, all of them. The lady looking after us, had a great sense of humour and her service was excellent. The food was outstanding.

For a bbq place, they didn't really have great bbq. The side dishes were good, I highly recommend the Mac n cheese. Also I'm from the south so their sweet tea wasn't very sweet to me but after I added a couple packs of sweetener it was some of the best tea I've ever had! Would definitely go back, just... More

We sat in the bar area for Super Bowl Sunday and our server was great. They had appetizer and drink specials all day. Prices were nice. Food was terrific. Atmosphere was warm and cozy.

Staff was friendly upon arrival. We were seated immediately. Waitress Breana showed up promptly and since we had never been to a famous Dave's she made some great suggestions which we took her up on. Food was amazing. Couldn't eat it all. Had to take some home with us. Breana was a top notch waotress and her manager stopped by... More

We used to enjoy eating at Famous Dave's but our last couple of visits have been disappointing. The atmosphere and environment of the restaurant are okay, and the staff are friendly and helpful. But we think the quality of the food has deteriorated. It was lunch, it served a purpose, but it wasn't the BBQ treat that I was looking... More
