We decided to stop here for a family lunch, and I can say I was extremely disappointed. I ordered the nachos with pulled pork, and they came out covered with items that were not even on the menu. I swapped with my wife who had ordered the burnt ends sandwich, and the meat was really dry, and one of the... More

Went for an eye exam and upon leaving saw a sign outside Famous Daves for lunch specials. We decided to give it a try. Good choice. Between us we had pork and brisket sandwiches. We both liked our choice. Will definitely go back.

We usually get our orders to go and have found that toward the end of the week the food sometimes tastes like it has been there a while. Usually early in the week it is great and I like they have a separate register for take out orders.

Had a nice spread for the 4th of July since no grill was going within a 10 mile radius of my house; at least not one I was invited to :( They had a packed house but getting a seat was quick and efficient. Drink orders shortly after seating, they were refreshing and good. Next up...app, shared amongst us were... More

We had a family group of 13 and ordered a variety of items. We started off with Sweetfish Catfish Fingers and Onion Strings. Both were delicious. The ribs and barbeque selections were tasty and the only complaint I heard was that we couldn't take the leftovers home because we were on the road!

Picked up carry out yesterday and as usual, my food was sooooo good. The staff is always so pleasant and helpful. The rib tips, ribs, chicken wings, and all are comfort food at its best. Love Famous Dave's.

Have been here many times and will be back. With one glaring exception service has been friendly and well done. Portions are large bordering on huge. Brisket has always been fine with only once exception. The flash fried onion strings are delicious. I haven't ever tried the fish. This is mass produced chain food and is fine for that setting....

My husband and I visited Famous Daves and ordered the platter for two. It was quick and delicious. It was a crazy amount of food. The roasted chicken was our favorite. The sides were tasty as well. Supposedly on Tuesday night two can eat for $19.99. That is a great deal! We enjoyed our dinner and our waitress Emily was... More

My wife headed to Dave's knowing we were going to have corn muffins. If you haven't been there that is the first thing I think about. As we started looking at the menu, we couldn't bring ourselves to pick the 13 to 15 fish pick. Our burger and fries were still over 10 each. Granted my burger was outstanding and... More

I like ribs and I never get to eat them enough. I ordered the ribs with burnt ends and really enjoyed the ribs. I enjoyed the burnt ends but they all looked the same like they were institutionalized, cut into the same squares. They made a tasty sandwich on the texas toast with coleslaw. The leftovers; beans with bacon, cornbread... More
