good brisket

being from Memphis, good BBQ is a tradition. FD does a good job of coming close to memphis style Q. Their brisket was very good. not dry but had a nice crispness to it. They have several different kinds of sauces that cover hot and spicey to mustard style. I recommend that you give them a try.

And they always smell great... More

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.

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.
