Great BBQ Destination Off I94 in Maple Grove

Driving through on business, I got off I94 and stumbled upon Famous Dave's BBQ. This was a very delicious meal offering generous portions and reasonable prices. I look forward to returning!

Have eaten at this Famous Dave's a few times as it is within walking distance of the Hampton Inn where I typically stay when on business in Maple Grove. Try the pork bbq sandwich with fries or the brisket. Ribs were just OK. Pretty good bbq for a chain and not very expensive.

We went to lunch at this restaurant. They weren't very crowded. I got a pulled pork sandwich that had many lean pieces of meat. There were also several pieces of fat mixed in. I was a bit disappointed in that. The coleslaw was very good and there were six different options for BBQ sauces. The waitress was very attentive so... More

We visit this restaurant 2 or 3 times a month, it's our go-to place for eating after 8 pm.There was only one time when we were disappointed with the staff, and that was at 6pm. I would not recommend the salmon, it's fishy. It seems that the brisket is back to it's usual yummy standard (one month earlier this year... More

We spent $150 on takeout for 6 adults and 2 kids. The ribs and brisket were good, but not exceptional. Everyone was happy, but this isn't anything special.

Had a party of 8, were told our wait would be 15-20 minutes. After over 1/2 hour went to convey frustration with many other smaller groups being seated before us. Be forewarned, this Maple Grove facility does NOT support more than one group of 7 or more. So after waiting all the time and having many others seated before us,... More

Amazing baked beans! This was our first experience at this restaurant chain. The waitress was amazing. She helped us out with food choices. For a chain type of restaurant it had really good food. It was nice seeing some spice (heat) being added to food. Plus there was a great selection of BBQ and hot sauces. If you're a first... More

This was just an average FD location. I have been to other FD locations that were better. Food was just average.

This Famous Dave's carries on the tradition of getting a quality meal at a good price. Service was very good and accommodating for large groups. Management of the property does a great job in keeping the place looking good and the staff trained properly
