The BBQ is always good at Famous Dave's and the same at each visit. The staff was friendly and attentive.

Although Famous Dave's isn't my personal first choice I do end up going there with work colleages every so often. The food is generally fairly good. The Dave's Mac & Cheese is absolutley amazing and really should be offered as more than a side dish. (Creamy Mac & Cheese with a little bit of sweet corn and a sprinkle of... More

I'm not a fan of Bar-B Que stuff, but my husband really wanted to try it. I was amazed at the choices. I had a pulled pork sandwich, and it was delightful. Several side choices as well. Service was excellent and out food arrived very quickly. we were there at 11:30 am on a sat.

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
