We love Famous Dave's and no matter where we travel, if they have one, we will stop. This trip was no exception! The service was great and the food was, as always, FANTASTIC! We WILL come back again! Great job!

So delicious! Highly recommend the giant, big feast - it supposed to feed 4-6 adults and it does the job (we even fed the kiddos from it too). The staff was nice, but it took a little bit for our check to arrive. The Rootbeer was amazing. Pretty much after this meal I didn't even want dessert.

There is nothing wrong here, and the staff is always friendly but I always walk away thinking they just missed it again. The food is never bad, but it always misses being anything special. The sides are fine but again, nothing special. The atmosphere is fine but... you get the idea. Need some bbq no problem, they've got it just... More

As we walked in we felt like we just walked into the wild west as there was antique decorations throughout the entire restaurant.

We frequent this place because my husband enjoys it. Usually we share a Feast Platter, or we pick the two meat dish. We have been to a number of BBQ places in the south and I would rate the food pretty good. The service has always been very good. I have watched families enjoy a night out here, as well... More

We had the very tasty ribs. They offer six different sauces you can put on at the table. They come well seasoned and tender. Another had the brisket. It was tasty as well. They offer several wonderful sides to choose from to complete your meal. You won't walk away hungry from this place!
