My husband loves Famous Dave's. The atmosphere is fun and laid back. The beef brisket is my favorite dish and my husband loves the ribs. Be prepared to get a little messy when you eat bbq. The other thing that is great here is Wilburs beans. This would be a great family restaurant as well as a date night or... More

Good traditional BBQ. St. Louis style ribs (the full rack is huge); great beef brisket and pulled pork is awesome! Plenty of beers to choose from if that is you drink of choice. No real dislikes, just a homey, comfortable atmosphere for the family.

Trying to make time on a long motor trip doesn't leave much time for searching out good places to eat. When asked, our hotel in Sioux City recommended Famous Dave's BarBQ. Apparently this is a franchise, but it certainly isn't one of the cookie-cutter types. The decor never knew a decorator, and the manager was straight out of Robert Service... More

During lunch today 9/18/2014, We came to have cocktails and lunch. Our server was GREAT! We only wish she would have served our food. Our food was delivered to our table by a tank top wearing manager. Her EXPOSED armpits were in close proximity of our food. I was disgusted and asked to speak to the manager....she WAS the manager.... More

Famous Dave's was within walking distance from the Stony Creek Inn and had a great selection of foods. Found out we have one not too far from our home (guess they're franchised) and will visit it there.

We have ate at Famous Dave's multiple times and have never been disappointed. The pulled pork is excellent and so is the chicken! The service has always been great!

The food was great and the service was fantastic. Every waiter/waitress who walked by asked if we need anything. The only thing that was a little annoying was the music was a little to loud.

I stay at the Stoney Creek Hotel next to Famous Dave's frequently. I always look forward to walking over and having their ribeye steak. While many other Famous Dave locations don't carry this, I am thankful that Sioux City does. Additionally, the staff is always courteous and interested enough in their patrons that they recognize repeat diners and welcome them... More
