Great BBQ

Typical of Famous Dave's, the food and service was great. I had the Catfish dinner and enjoyed it very much. The fish was tender and it was battered and fried just right. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. I would certainly recommend this location.

I have enjoyed barbecue from dozens of places including Famous Dave's on numerous occasions. However, my most recent experience with them will be my last. My food was barely warm, and my order was incorrect. Problem is, once I got my food, I didn't see a server or manager for close to 20 minutes. My wife's food was not hot... More

Wow, I could not disagree more with some of the negative reviews on this site -- Famous Dave's BBQ was well worth the visit. The smell alone was worth the trip and gave that real southern feel. The pulled-pork was outstanding, and by no means "smoked too long" (is there is such a thing?) and fries were outrageously tasteful and... More

Famous Daves BBQ is not what I would call traditional BBQ. It is cooked too long and the "falling off the bone" certainly won't win you any trophy's at the BBQ cookoffs. The best part is the sauce and it is a bit sweet for my taste.

When traveling, I try to eat healthy and Famous Dave's gives me a delicious option. The cedar plank salmon with broccoli and grilled pineapple is tasty and healthy. It is my go-to choice. With a glass of crisp white wine, I know I will enjoy my food when all around me others are eating BBQ.

We are a large family so we always order to-go from here. The servers in the To-go area are always nice and pay "special" attention to my kids when I bring them. Sometimes we only order the corn bread because it's that good. My husband loves the 1/2 chicken.

Food is great. Sauces are really good. Good atmosphere. Lunch specials are very affordable. Beer prices are too high though.

Last night had dinner with wife and my in laws. My wife and I had chicken tenders and Georgia pulled bar b q. In laws choose to split a large all American feast among 6 people. All the food was delicious and well prepared. Wait staff and manager were very helpful and friendly. They made the meal perfect and enjoyable.

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
