Stopped in for a quick lunch. I really like the brand, but it doesn’t feel special when there are so many locations. Our brisket was a bit fatty and the mac and cheese was straight from Kraft. I’ll probably be back again as there aren’t a lot of restaurants in the general vicinity.

I ordered takeout by phone. When I picked up, my order had been upgraded to a more expensive combo. So $5.00 more than I planned to spend. My burger was pre formed and flavorless. Fries are frozen variety. Best thing I had were the spicy pickles. Many better barbecue places around.

Famous Dave's does make good BBQ, but their portions are very stingy. Ordered brisket on a to go order and wound up with literally 3 slices. They don't put much meat in the platters either. I found a much better deal at Dickey's.

Ordered the big ribs on Sun at 3PM for take-out. Truly, I think they steamed the ribs from the day before and sold them to me. You know making money is the bottom line. I could have cook better ribs in my oven at 350 deg for 3 hours. That's exactly how they tasted. Wet gooey and no flavor. My... More

I go to many Famous Dave's places but this one is one of my favorite stores. The staff and fast, fun, and friendly and I have never had any problems with my order but if I did I am confident it would be fixed to my liking as soon as possible. My favorites are the Mac and Cheese, rib tips... More

typically love the place but over past few months quality and value had eroded, the once tender briskett meal was dried out and reminded me of an Arbys sandwich and to top it off they dropped their drunkin apple side.. so for briskett ho elsewhere

Yes, "ribs are just ribs". Good food, and well-executed recipes, but the recipes and flavors don't stand out as special. Reason to go is convenience of take-out, and good & predictable take-out service. There are better places for more original, more true-to-form rib and sides recipes, but they are harder to get to.
