I have eaten at many famous dave's BBQs in other cities, but the service at the Meridian store was the best of the best. Our server, although very busy, made us (and as we watched) and every one of her tables feel at home and as if we were her only table. Famous Paige is an amazing asset to this... More

I had never heard of Famous Dave's until we got the invite to my sister-in-law's 70th birthday party. Now, don't for a moment think that this restaurant Is geared for the geriatric crowd! All the kids, grandkids and great grandkids were there, too, and no one felt the restaurant wasn't suited well to each of us. We had a very... More

Really nice staff, great decor... But seriously, the BBQ is nothing special. It's not 'melt in your mouth' BBQ (personal preference) and the meat is quite dry. Sides are pretty good. The sauces are very unique, but not worth coming back for. There are much better BBQ places in Boise.

I've heard a lot of rave reviews about this place from a few friends of mine and decided to try this. I'm disappointed in this and won't be back; there are much better BBQ places here in town. Giving this place two stars is being generous. They put jalapenos in the baked beans and the macaroni and cheese and I... More

We always have a great meal at Famous Dave's, and seem to always have greeters and servers who are happy to be there and happy to see us. No matter what we order, it's delicious, and always plenty to take for another meal at home, which in our book, makes it seem like half price! Many times we have asked... More

We had a group of 15 people on a Friday night and they were able to accommodate our group with less than an hour notice. Service was excellent and food was good.

I enjoyed this restaurant. My family and I went after the lunch rush and before the dinner rush. The staff was super nice and we went on a day where kids meals were $1 each. If they keep this promotion as a permanent promotion I will probably go back. The food was average and the environment was kid friendly.
