As a rule we stay away from chains, but we are more than happy we stopped at Famous Dave's. My wife and I were both hungry for ribs so we gave it a try. This is a very neat restaurant with great food and fast service. The entire staff from the manager to our server were very friendly. They made... More

Huge portions, take half home. Love the brisket and the ribs. If you like spicy, sample the Devil Spit sauce, is my personal favorite. Had the sampler, served on a garbage can lid! Enough food for 4. Go early, place is busy or you can call and place an order for pick up.

A group of nine of us enjoyed Friday night dinner before a family event recently. We called ahead for reservations so our table was set up and ready for us. Our server was organized and obviously used to handling a group of this size. Beer selection was good with a number of local and sort-of-local breweries represented. Fish options available.... More

Delicious food, great service, clean environment and great prices. Awesome deserts. Must try their bread pudding, it will keep you coming back for more. Enjoy!

My wife and I stopped in to share some BBQ and had a really good time. We shared a combo platter, the cornbread was fresh food was hot and we got our chow really fast and that was kind of a surprise as busy as they were. But one of the best parts of our evening was our wait staff... More

This was my first visit to Famous Dave's, and I was pleasantly surprised. The outdoor themed décor was fun, the food and service were both good. The food isn't over priced, and you shouldn't leave hungry. Based on this experience, I would definitely try another Famous Dave's.

We'd discovered Famous Dave's in Missoula two days before and were pleased to find one in Billings. The decor, service and high quality BBQ was identical to what we had experienced in Missoula.

This was my third visit. They used to serve potatoe chips with their sauces. Well, apparently they don't do it anymore. When the dishes came, my salad that promised a bed of fresh greens had greens that were fresh last year. Quality of meat was good, but even corn muffins were glued to their paper cups, and it was hard... More
