We drive about an hour away to eat here or we take out at least once a month. Always friendly and always great food. My family always orders the Family Feast and as a family of four we have plenty of left overs for us to enjoy later or the next day.

Famous Daves in Orland Park is totally amazing and unique to this area. About this time of year they have the catfish. It is all the catfish with none of the bones. I don't like chain restaurants but this one is incredible. #1 drinks-- big Margaritas or Kendall-Jackson char, it's there. #2 Ambiance !!! I don't know who designs these... More

Was told by more than one person to "...try Famous Dave's if you haven't already." It was NOT the best BBQ in town in my opinion, I'd rather turn the corner and head down 159th Street to "The Patio" restaurant. Now there's BBQ to write home about. I did not taste anything special about Famous Dave's and have to wonder... More

Famous Dave's is an outstanding Chain with great BBQ and great food at very resonable prices. We stopped by the Orland Park location for lunch in the middle of a blizzard, on our way back home to Massachusetts from a Colorado ski trip. The food and service were out standing. Our waitress Dominique was great. I had a rib and... More

We went to Famous Daves late Friday night because we got tired of the wait at Cooper Hawks. We were seated immediately and the waitress was extremely nice. I got the rib combo 1/2 slab baby back ribs & 1/2 slab st. Louis ribs. The baby back were spicy and much too salty. In addition, they seemed to be slightly... More
