I have eaten in many Famous Dave's restaurants and the one in Idaho Falls does a pretty good job and is consistent but nothing compared to say Billings, MT. Location/Restuarant: It is located on the west end of Idaho Falls within about a 1/2 mile of the hotel row on Lindsay Blvd. that lines the west side of the Snake... More

They have Best Bar-B-Que in town. Prices are very reasonable. Best Bread Pudding, I have had even better than East coast Bread Pudding. Take time to enjoy food and atmosphere.

Famous Dave's has gone down hill in terms of food and service quality. On our last visit, we sat at the bar and ordered drinks, appetizers and entrees.

Problem is, as with our last visit to Famous Dave's, from the bar you really get to observe the orchestration of the staff (or... More

The meal I had was pretty good. A little pricey. Atmosphere was lighthearted, service was friendly. Its hard to beat BBQ when you've had it in the south, but not too bad.

As like all Famous Daves the food was great. The prices are reasonable. Staff was very friendly. It was located less then 5 minutes from the Hampton Inn in Idaho falls.

Me and my family went to this place in September 16th for my birthday. We had a great meal there. We did the family feast for 4 and it was wonderful. The only thing they could improve on was the brisket but out side of that it was excellent. The customer service was great too. As well there wasn't very... More

Our waitress was very attentive and did an amazing job. The manager came to our table to thank us for trying Famous Dave's since this was our first time. He gave us a bottle of barbeque sauce. I really liked the selection of sauces table side.

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!!
