The last time I had ribs here they weren't the best. But I do like the other things they have here. Their pulled pork and beef brisket are pretty good, especially with the rich & sassy sauce. Best sides are the wilbur beans and the mashed red potatoes. And the chips they serve are great with sauce added to them.... More

Not a fan of this place. Their BBQ sauce isn't that good. Has a bland taste to it. Service is fair but not a place I choose to go

I have been to this location many times and have never been disappointed. This last visit was on a Sunday night and I arrived just an hour before closing time. I ordered the smaller size (I believe it is a 1/3rd size rack of ribs with chips and mac and cheese. Their mac and cheese is very unique and definitely... More

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

Visited with my wife and daughter. Daughter had the brisket sandwich. First off it came as a chopped brisket sandwich??? Who does that to brisket? Dave... 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.
