Good business lunch

I have eaten here for a couple of business lunches. The BBQ is good and the atmosphere is good. You really can't go wrong here.

We were flying in and out of the Idaho Falls airport and decided to stop here for lunch on the last day. The BBQ is excellent, the slaw is also good and the corn bread is to die for. We were a large group, without reservations, and they made up a table for us and served us in record time... More

Went here for dinner and couldn't eat most of the meat because it was fat with a lot of gristle. I had the Georgia pork and my husband had the pork sandwich and they were both horrible. We have eaten here in the past and it would be good one time and ok the next. This is the last time... More

Seeing as Famous Dave's was right near out hotel,some cocktails and a ton of meat seemed in order before heading back to the room for a good night's sleep. Also, it was one of only two restaurants nearby that had a full bar. The other was Olive Garden. I'd never eaten at a Famous Dave's, and given that Dave's is... More

When ever family or friends come to town, we try to go to Famous dave's. We think they have the best ribs and brisket in town. The service has always been excellent. The servers have been just super.The prices are affordable. We even like the two for one price meal they offer. Never go away hungry there. We really like... More

This was our first time at Famous Daves. We shared a combo meal that was huge it came with beef brisket, chicken, ribs coleslaw, beans, fries and a corn muffin. The food was really great! The servings are huge and we both left stuffed. My favorite was the brisket. They have a great staff everyone was friendly and very helpful.... More

Stopped in with our family of four. I have ate at a lot of bbq places and this place is awesome. Pricing is very fair and you get a really good portion for what you get. For a family of four it cost us 50 bucks with drinks. I would recommend this to anyone that likes bbq food. The server... More

We've visited this Famous Dave's previously and have had good luck. Tonight's visit was disappointing. I ordered the BBQ chicken salad and for $13.99 it was basically lettuce with a little bit of chicken on top. It was supposed to come with bacon (I counted two little bits) and shoestring potatoes. When I asked the server she said, "Yeah, we're... More

We dropped in just prior to the last leg onto "The Yellowstone" with a tired grandchild. We done good. Children's menu and food was just right and the fare for Grandparents was "tried and true goooood" with fresh baked corn muffin side to boot. The pull'd pork I had was not too sweet and fit for several additions of Famous... More
