Simple food but great

I love the food at Famous Daves, especially the corn on the cob. The atmosphere is almost like a carnival such a light and happy atmosphere.

Came with friends for dinner. Half price appetizers on Sunday. We had the nachos because nachos are a food group all to themselves and burnt ends. We also had the Feast for Two which feeds more than two. We had leftovers for lunch the next day. The meat was so good that I didn't put any sauce on it. Loves... More

Husband liked his ribs, onion straws and cornbread. He did not care for potato salad or Wilbur beans. I ordered the BBQ chicken nachos. They were okay, nothing special.

Celebrated our younger son's birthday at Famous Dave's last week. LOVE the ribs. LOVE the brisket. Everything we ordered was delicious and hot. Morgan, our server was spectacular - efficient and friendly.

Famous Dave's has one of the best bar-b-que restaurants in town. They got nice servers willing to make you dining experience really nice. Their prices are very reasonable, especially all the food that they give you. I highly recommend you take your friends and family to the Famous Dave's.

Placed a to go order. Server was prompt and food arrived quickly. The ribs are outstanding as is the cornbread. The brisket was good but the ribs are better. Pineapple slices also very good. The Mac and cheese was just average, very thick in style. Would highly recommend overall.

Honestly, I really try not to eat at chain restaurants because it's just more fun to go local. However, I eat at Famous Dave's because a few people in my family LOVE it, and choose this location for birthday meals. I love their barbequed nahchos, burnt ends and don't miss the bread pudding for dessert.

Table of 8 , I ordered the "catfish" I say that because it was like fish poop, it was horrible tasting they were soggy and limp and looked worse than frozen fish sticks!! But I replaced with a BBQ brisket sandwich and it was great . so be warned!!!

The food is just ok. They became more commercialized than really putting out great BBQ. I would go back if someone else wanted to go that is from out of town..
