Best barbecue in town

My friend & I have been to a lot of food joints these last few months and it has been a while since we both truly enjoyed a good meal. Famous Dave's barbecue makes me want to travel to the US to find out how the original compares. As it's a fairly new resto, I hope the service and sumptuous... read more

My 1st Famous Dave's experience. Enjoyable atmosphere, good service & food, lovely bar. Ordered shared, custom meal and was very pleased with quality & quantity. Employees were rushed/busy, they took the time to make us very welcome. Will visit again.

The food here is phenomenal! I have never had a bad meal. The service is outstanding. Very friendly people and always on top of things. I recommend the Texas Beef Brisket. It is unbelievable. If you are in Billings, you have to eat here!

This is a popular place -- a bit pricy but the food is generally good and the service is also pretty decent -- I had the barbecued ribs, which I found to be rather good. My friend had a sandwich. Over all, I have eaten there several times over the years and have been pleased enough to return
