We did a retirement party here - and they set us up in our own room. Staff was helpful in arrangements ahead of time and service during party. Already knew the barbecue would be delicious - and it was. Set up large group with multiple trash can lid combination platters.

I went to Famous Dave's in Saginaw on my birthday this year and liked the food. This was during the lunch hour and the crowd wasn't too bad and the food was really good.

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
