Good Ribs

Had the ribs and they were pretty good for a non-southern joint. Service was very good, atmosphere interesting. Fast service, reasonably priced.

Good Barbecue and good side dishes. I love the pulled pork and the ribs. Be prepared to get messy with the wonderful sauces -many to choose from

I had take out here and the order was hosed!!! Even though the error was corrected (after discovering it at home and driving back) the policy is to go over the order and the young lady at the counter was "too busy" for that. There was one other person in the take out area?!?!?!?

8 of us had lunch here, family style and for the cost we all had a real good meal. Chicken, ribs, brisket and enough to feed everyone with all the sides included. It was good.

Our last family outing here two weeks ago was pleasant, but by no means the best experience we've had here. Although service was attentive, we thought the prices had gone up but not the quality. The menu is mostly comprised of southern style dishes, like cajun catfish and all kinds of BBQ ribs, with a variety of extra sauces on... More

We used to have Famous Dave's in Muskegon, but it went under a few years ago for reasons I can't understand and has been replaced by an overpriced Japanese steakhouse with staff who barely speak English.

I eat at famous faves approximately every 3 months with either my friends or family members. Saturday evenings are fairly busy, but when you have patrons waiting with multiple tables open, this leaves and undesirable experience.
