Had lunch in the Billings Famous Dave's recently and had the burnt tips sandwich. My friend had something called Dave's famous sandwich - I think he made a better choice.

Buzzing, busy, excellent service, fantastic menu and great food. Hardest bit is choosing what to have from the huge menu. Ribs are fab but the choices go on and on. You must go here! Staff excellent as ever. Would love to return one day.

I had not been into a Famous Dave's in awhile, but I'm so glad we chose to stop by. The food (burnt ends and feast for two) was just about perfect, and the price was reasonable. The service was what really made the meal. Our server was helpful, attentive, and personable. I'd hate to be competing in the BBQ arena... More

Great meal with excellent service. We all had different types of BBQ and all was very good. Normally not a fan of corn bread but this was AWESOME!

This was an amazing meal. We did the family meal, which is served on a garbage can lid! So that alone was fun. The brisket was melt-in-your-mouth tender, and my husband thought the ribs were the best he had ever eaten. Everything was superb.

This is my family's #1 restaurant for comfort food. Service is always great, food always delicious. It's becoming our home away from home for dinner.

The waitress was a very cute and friendly and she was excellent at her job! She offered us a free trial of barbeque chips that are homemade and offered to replace a side dish if my wife thought it was to spicy. Fantastic place to eat!
