Very good Texas BBQ

I had the combo plate with brisket, sausage and rib tips. All was very good. The sides are on the small side. A good selection of sauces that should satisfy anyone. If you feel that BBQ needs sauce.

We stopped in for a quick bite and they had a great late happy hour running from 8 PM. The rib tips were fabulous and the scoth ale beer was a great compliment. The staff was very nice and attendant.

Super good service and attention. Food was OK, but not the same as I have had at other Famous Dave's when traveling. I have not been back since we have another BBQ restaurant in Bozeman that has been consistent. The food was not bad, I would go back to get a BBQ fix if the other one was not right... More

We had the American Feast, there were 4 of us -my husband and I and our 2 teenage boys. It fed us so completely that we could not finish it all. For my 2 boys that is amazing. The wait staff was very friendly, the service was good, this was like the best bbq I have ever had.

Food was good as always. We had an extremely long wait for our food. I understand Friday nights are busy but an hour to get our food and one that didn't get food until part of us were already done.

My husband and I have always enjoyed eating at Famous Dave's but last night was the worst we have ever experienced there. I must say that our waiter did everything possible to make things right but I do believe the kitchen had a BIG meltdown. If Gordon Ramsay had been there he would have thrown them all out. First thing... More
