good food and beer!

The food was good, reasonably priced and the Bozone beer was good too! Many different sauces to choose from to go with your BBQ meats. Friendly and fast service, but it was very hot out and it seemed like the air conditioning wasn't working all that well. Everything else was good!

Disappointed in the ribs I had but my husband's brisket was delicious. I was sad Zi hadn't ordered it too. Cornbread delicious. We picked our order up and one side was missing but didn't bother going back after a long day on the road.

My first time to Famous Dave's....we only have access to the bbq sauce back home. Place was packed so we ate in the bar. Drink service was good, nice selection of draft beers that we sampled, but service was really slow for dinner on a thursday eve. I ordered a bbq salad and it seemed it had been sitting forever....cold... More

This is awesome. Seriously. We ordered the family meal and usually when you order the family meal, portion size is always questionable. Not here. We were served ribs, corn, muffins, pork, chicken, slaw, and beans. More than we could eat. The ribs are dry rubbed and on the table are bottles of different sauces. Everyone can sauce to their choosing.... More

The service was amazing. I had the meat sampler. Plenty of BBQ'd meat such as chicken ribs beef etc. more than enough for one and only $18.99. More than worth it. If you like BBQ'd mest you must eat here. You won't regret it. And the service is fast.

Tender and juicy bar-b-que. Good service. Everything was great except the fries. The fries were too salty even for my friend who isn't on a no/little salt diet.

I recently ate at Famous Dave's BBQ while staying in Bozeman June 13 and 14, 2015. The service and food were both great. I had the ribs. If this review was helpful in any way check the "yes" box below.

It's good food for the most part. The restaurant seems kind of gross in terms of cleanliness. I always feel dirty when leaving, and the tables are very sticky. :(
