Great barbeque

Just stopped in, did not know of this chain of restaurants. But will keep a look out for. The ribs are cooked perfect. The burger was fantastic, great barbeque flavor. The restaurant is simple, clean and comfortable. You feel like you are out back at barbeque.

I love any chance to dine at Famous Dave's, so when visiting Minnesota recently we got the opportunity to have dinner here. My friends and I have long dined at various location Famous Dave's and the consistent quality is always great. This location lived up to that tradition of excellent food and atmosphere. The rich, smoky flavor of their meaty... More

Famous dave's is NEVER a disappointment. Portions are large enough to enjoy them a '2nd day'. Just wish my favorite desert, bread pudding, ('gold standard for anyone else's) wasn't so expensive....how to choose? ribs?? vs bread pudding'?? then I saw that the portion size was smaller than I remembered, so glad I didn't order it

A friend of mine and I had lunch at Famous Dave's-Roseville. We arrived at 1100 hrs and placed our order at the counter attended by some very friendly people. I ordered the Rib N Rib combo and my friend had the country style chicken. Orders were served at the table by a very friendly server followed by several visits thereafter... More

I always get their beef brisket, so I can't comment on other items, though people I go with always seem to like what they order. I love the beef brisket and rich and sassy sauce. Good baked beans, typical potato salad, but good. Wait staff is nice, though they do want to tell you the "Famous Dave story" or "have... More

I enjoy Famous Dave's, "blacken tips". What a great idea, to serve some of the most flavorable pieces of meat. I do not enjoy the walk up and order, then wait for the food to be delivered, must it is what is at this store. All menu items are good to very good.

I have been here a couple of times for dinner and always enjoy the BBQ. They do a KC style BBQ which is one of my favorites. I was disappointed they no longer have the wild rice soup on the menu anymore but I guess I will survive. This is a order at the counter and they bring your food... More

I've had Dave's several times at a Rib Cookoff in Sparks, NV so I was really looking forward to having dinner here. Yum, yum, and yum! Large portions and great food. Only disappointment was I was unable to eat at the restaurant since a large group of adults and children arrived right before I did. They had a take out... More
