The Devil's Spit Burger was fantastic, as always, but the service on my visit was very disorganized and very slow. In short, It took our table around 45 minutes to receive our orders. The fact that I had to flag down a completely different waiter to place our order didn't help anything wait time wise. Our original waiter/bartender was busy... More

Been to many Famous Dave's and this was probably the worst one I eaten at yet. Had the brisket is was dry and hard, not tender and juicy like the others I have had, mac & cheese was no different.

I love good barbecue, but I really dislike it when it is not lean. The pulled pork we had here was full of fat.

We have ate there several times, and have never had any problems. But, this time our server was great, but getting our food was really slow. I wouldn't have minded, but there were not that many people in there. Then when we got our food mine was cold. My boyfriend and granddaughter's food was ok. I was very disappointed. This... More

I have been living in Clarksville for about 2 years now and I must say that this has to be one of the best BBQ spots there is. The service was great. We joked and laughed with our waiter the entire time. Good job Jack.

Great food and service, our second visit to this restaurant, highly recommend the brisket. Women's Restroom stall walls could be a little cleaner.

I wish we lived closer so we could go more often. Excellent food and fast service. We got the feast for 2 for myself and husband and brought home enough food for another meal, great value for the money spent. All of the servers we encountered were very nice, and friendly and wanted to make our visit as pleasant as... More

First time there. Tried burnt ends sandwich, SO GOOD! On the side I tried their cole slaw, different then usual but still tasty. Their fries are good too. I wanted to eat there again later that week to try something else, but we ran out of time. :( Very kind and attentive staff. Will be returning! All around 5 stars!
