Good BBQ - Perhaps the best in Detroit.

Went for supper 2015 04 03 with a couple of friends. I had been here a few times before and did not hesitate to return. Not quite as good as Smoke & Spice across the river, in Windsor, BUT very good none the less. Between us we had the Catfish, Chicken Tenders, Ribs, Brisket and some sort of... read more

Not really the places fault that our grades of meat just are not like they use to be, I just no longer enjoy going to these places due to meat being tough and it never was before. Also seems to have more fat and waste. The staff is fine and sides are also fine but I am trying to stay... More

Not a lot of space between tables to walk, disappointed that every TV had sports on, the BBQ sauce bottles were all sticky, Ribs seemed undercooked, Jalapeño overpowered the crappy taste of the Mac & Cheese, every cup of pop was flat and/or tasted like a combination of multiple pops, Bread Pudding tasted like raw french toast covered in syrups,...

Feels like your in a indoor b.b.que when it's freezing out side and your mouth watering ribs hitting that comfort spot, yummy for my tummy!

I'm not sure what "Famous Daves" is famous for, it surely isn't the food. I could've done better than this in my hotel room with a crock pot and a blow torch! We had the baby back & meat and the feast for 1. The ribs were tough and not sure what was in the beans, they had a funky... More

We were staying nearby while on a visit to The Henry Ford and we found Famous Dave's on Google. The place was busy (a good sign) and we got seated right away. The menu featured ribs, chicken, pulled pork, and the usual array of BBQ items. The food was excellent and the prices reasonable for the quality and quantity. Waitress... More

Expect up to 20 minute wait for a table for the crowd on weekends. I have no issue with that, people like good home cooking. Very courteous wait staff giving details for what some ingredients in certain food some people with diet restrictions.. Just like when I cook for my family at home it may take a little wait not...

Asked a local about a good BBQ restraunt and he said Famous Daves. We were pleasantly greeted and seated quickly. The server was friendly and checked on us several times during our meal. The food was very tasty with great flavor. If you like BBQ this is a place worth trying.

I've visited several Famous Dave's locations previous to this one. Food quality this visit was not up to the others. Could have just been an off night or it could also be the general cost cutting measures all establishments seem to be taking these days. Service at the bar was above average, I never went without a cold beverage.
