We shared a meal and it was enough for the both of us. The staff was friendly and the service was prompt. The atmosphere was pleasant

We come to town a few times a year and always stay at the Fairfield Inn and Famous Dave's is right next door. They have the best barbque around. We always have good service and leave full and happy!!

Second time I've eaten at Famous Dave's while in Idaho Falls. Food is decent and well-priced, staff do a nice job of making road warriors who find themselves dining solo very comfortable.

My daughter loves their ribs and usually doesn't eat much but she clean her full order of ribs. The rest of us shared their family meal. Plenty of food for the 4 of us.

We always enjoy Dave's great service and ribs. The baby backs are tender and tasty. Try all the sauces. We will be back.

I would not recommend. Dave your money. Brisket was very fatty and beer was flat. I had to ask my server for a fork and knife twice.

As I have visited this location a couple of times on my way through Idaho Falls, I have been happy with the food and the service. We have visited my locations of Famous Dave's across America and this is probably one of my favourite locations. The ribs were the best I have had in quite a few different locations. We... More
