What a trip it was with tasty food and great service. I ordered the lunch combo choosing the pulled pork and the St. Louis style ribs and a side of... read more

Time after time, Famous Dave's produces quality meals, in great quantity as well. We often go in very hungry on a Sunday afternoon and come out stuffed to the gills! Just about everything is wonderfully delicious. Make sure you top off your meal with one of their great desserts. My favorite is Bread Pudding - to die for!!

Best thing about here is the cornbread and the bread pudding for dessert!!! It's not the best food ever and the service is fine nothing outstanding. I still go here at times but it's a bit to pricey in my opinion.

I thoroughly enjoyed my steak & rib combo. The 5 oz. steak was juicy, tender, with lots of flavor. The size was perfect. The 4 Beef ribs had a significant amount of meat on each of them. Dave's BBQ sauce is sweet and tangy. It's not my favorite BBQ sauce, but in my Top 5. The sides of W. beans... More
