Great interior design along with BBQ that is always the same, I'm never disappointed with Famous Dave's. Plus, next door is the best frozen custard in the world, Andy's.

Famous Dave's has very good BBQ and a wide variety of selections on the menu. There were four of us, each having something different. All selections were very good. Nice atmosphere, friendly service and reasonable on prices. If you like BBQ you will not be disappointed.

We had the worst service ad food this visit. We had hair in our food, then they brought us new food and it was in a dirty bowl. The serve took 10-15 mins to get what we would ask for and we would have to ask multiple times. I wouldn't recommend going. Very disappointed.

My husband and I had dinner here late Monday evening. We ordered the Feast for Two and it was fantastic. Our waitress was so friendly and made us feel very welcome. The only complaint here is that the bathroom floor in the ladies room was very dirty. The dinning room was nice and clean.

A must stop in Springfield. The Feast for One and the catfish are delicious. If you leave here hungry you are to blame. The portions are generous, the service is always outstanding, the atmosphere is relaxing, the prices are reasonable, and the food is delicious! This is one of my family's favorite restaurants so we often celebrate special occasions here.... More

Famous Dave's is a great chain bbq restaurant to visit while you are in town. I think their bbq sauce "Devil's Spit" is the best.
