Eaten here twice...4 stars+

Twice we've shown up here with a group of 20 plus people. We had called ahead, though. Food is very good and our servers were efficient. Not bad at all for barbeque. Their corn bread is awesome! Would recommend to others.

I had eaten at a Denver location when I was there for business, but my husband had not. We were passing through Idaho Falls, so we stopped. This location was nicely decorated in a lodge theme. We ordered the Feast for one which comes with a good variety of foods and sides - plenty of food for two. The Brisket... More

Ate here for the very first time. We are from Texas so I didn't really want to eat here because I thought how can it be as good as home. I was very surprised! The food was delicious and the service was even better. The hostess was very friendly and our server was awesome. He never let our drinks get... More

Been a couple years since we've eaten here. Apparently thing have slid downhill since then. Arrived to eat around 3ish on Saturday. We were promptly seated and immediately forgotten. We requested table seating, so it wasn't like we were hunkered back in a corner booth. Finally, we had to ask someone (that turned out to not be our server) for... More

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

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.

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
