Our meal was really good we'll go back for sure. The service was good and the place was clean. Meat was fresh not frozen.

Seems very crowded & rushed. Expensive. But food is good. I wouldn't mind trying it again to see if it is different.

The hubby loves his barbecue so we stopped here while in town. We got take out which might be why we waited about 30 minutes for our food. Fortunately the food was good. Prices average but food not! Worth the wait.

Went on a Monday night around 6 PM. Not busy at all. Seated immediately, in a booth, after requesting one. Service was very attentive, but gave us time to check out the menu thoroughly and digest our food before dessert. I ordered a chicken dish, and DH had ribs. Loved the ribs and chicken, the potatoes and Mac -N- Cheese... More

Until we have been stopping once a week for a month. And all we can say is FANTASTIC! Great food, great service, decent prices. It's a wonderful change. Food always hot and smoking good. A well rounded menu is also very nice. It's also very nice to see a manager going around making sure that your meal is okay. Start... More

The catfish fingers were really good. Just the right amont of spice. Yummy. The server was friendly. Would like to see what they could do with more fish selections.

Although Famous Dave's is a chain restaurant, don't let that stop you from trying the best BBQ in the Saginaw area! You can go for lunch and get a small portion or go for dinner and go all in with the Trash Can Lid, which is just as big as it sounds! My favorite is the brisket, but there are... More

I love everything on the menu so much so that we always order the Trash Can Lid.It is a lot of everything.The price is very reasonable and so much food that there is enough food to take home for a few more meals.The flavor of the grilled and smoked meat is perfection.The meat falls off the bone and is fork...

We stumbled across this place by accident. The parkinglot was packed at 4:30 so we thoughtwe would try it and we are so glad we did. The staff were all very friendly, even with us wearing our Canada gear after the U.S. just lost to Canada. We tried combination plates. My husband had chicken and ribs and I had ribs... More
