Bring your lips and do some smacking!

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... read more

The food is excellent and was especially fun to receive the full meal for everyone served on a garbage can lid, with added items because of the size of the group that day.

This is the second Famous Dave's location I have visited and boy did it suck in comparison with the other. First, it was nearly empty, but the hostess thought it would be appropriate to seat me beside a table of two "families" that were loud, drunk and profane while letting their kids run around like maniacs. After changing table to... More

Great experience in Idaho Falls at Famous Dave's. While this is a chain restraint it has a rustic appeal. The female staff that waited on us was very familiar with the Famous Dave's brand and the menu. We were asked if it was our first Famous Dave experience and explained the sauces. While waiting for our feast they served a... More

Have been to famous Daves many times and loved it every time. Good service even when it's crowded (which it can be). The feasts are great for a crowd! This last time I had the chopped pork which was delicious. They have 4 unique BBQ sauces - I love the 'Rich and Sassy' one. There's something for everyone, we took... More

We ate here. That's about all you can say, really. It was OK food in an OK setting at a slightly less than OK price. Service was excellent.

We ate lunch here. I had the loaded potato with pork, and coleslaw. My husband had a cheeseburger. All the food was delicious, the service was excellent and the background music not too loud. Loved the place.
