Great family style dining

This place feels like you have gone to your aunt & uncle's for a BBQ. It is a friendly atmosphere, with friendly staff, to boot. I had the delicious Texas Beef Brisket. The garlic mashed potatoes were a bit TOO garlicky for me, but the cornbread muffins are the BEST! We will definitely be back.

We were leaving the next day for a trip and didn't want to cook dinner, so we decided to get a platter for 2-3 people. It could have easily served 4 people and it was so delicious. It was sad to have to dispose of the leftovers just because we wouldn't be there to eat it the next day. The... More

Had a little family reunion with my sibs and our mother a couple of weeks ago in Boise, ID. On our last night in town we decided to go out for dinner our treat. After much discussion it was decided that we would drive to Meridian to try out Famous Daves. What a treat! Beautiful interior, great wait staff, very... More

We have eaten at this particular restaurant since moving nearby a couple of years ago. We have experienced consistently good service and food each time we have visited until our last visit. Our last visit was mid afternoon, and the restaurant was nearly empty. Long story short, wrong food arrived, then each of our party of three received moved several... More

There were 20 people in our group, and we came in pretty late (9:30). They happily seated us and quickly got our order going. The food was delicious with large portions. I had the BBQ chicken, and it came with two pieces of chicken (I could only eat one), two sides (I chose the corn and garlic mashed potatoes, yummy),... More

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
