We ate here as a family and everyone enjoyed their food tremendously. I wish the menus had pictures of the different types of meat available but the server was very helpful, with answering questions we had. We tried all of the sauces that were sitting on the table and the server brought out some ships to dip in the sauces,... More

This review gets 1 star only and it goes to the servers. They were very polite and helpful. The food, on the other hand, is terrible. I have never seen so much fat in my life. My family and I were very disappointed because of this. My mother-in law even burst into tears; I think she overreacted, to be honest,... More

I love good Texas barbecue and I really don't know how to rate this one. The ribs are just not outstanding to me, though you can dip them in all kinds of sauces to add the kind of flavor you like. The basic ribs should be tasty enough to stand on their own without the sauce, these are not. The... More

When you have a large group that needs to be able to all talk, relax and eat...you need the right place. Famous Dave's in Billings does a decent job of that at lunch.

I love good Barbque. Daves is pretty good. Not enough portion wise for the prices they have. They have a great selection of sauces. Service is good and the atmosphere is light and fun.

I try to get ribs in every state I travel to or through. I usually try the local "Mom & Pop" places first, to enjoy the local culinary scene. But everytime I return to Billings, my wife & I return to Famous Dave's to get the excellent food and no "surprises" we often receive through our travels. We love eating... More

Quickly seated in bar to watch college football. Decor is fun, lodge style with a lot of nic-knacks. Service was quick. We ordered the feast for two and couldnt even finish it. This location serves beer and wine only.

Very tasty ribs, brisket, and dessert. They need more work on the chicken as it seems like something you could do at home but they cook all the other food really well. If you have a craving for BBQ in Billings stop here and get your fix. The desserts were amazing, wish they had the bread pudding but the banana... More

My husband and I truly enjoyed our supper at Famous Dave's. We loved the hunting lodge atmosphere, with all of the hunting & fishing gear displayed. It was obviously a busy place, but we were seated right away and our waiter was A plus! We both had the pulled pork and tried the variety of BBQ sauces on the table.... More
