Great Barbecue Flavors

Eaten in several Famous Dave's and the food quality is pretty consistent. Barbecue flavors are very good, potato salad is ok, beans are good too. Chicken was moist, and ribs are tender and tasty. Location is close to serval motels and freeway access. This Dave's only served beer and... read more

Famous Dave's is apparently a barbeque chain we were not familiar with. The restaurant was well patronized and the menu offered plenty of options, so it seemed promising. But the brisket dinner I ordered was miniscule, tough and cold. I sent it back to the kitchen as inedible and got a larger, warmer portion back that was much more satisfactory... More

Yummy, yummy! We ordered a few kinds of ribs and they were delicious. We ate until we were stuffed. Had sides of garlic mashed potatoes and corn but the ribs were fantastic. Very meaty and tasty. The price was very reasonable too! The restaurant atmosphere was comfortable and the staff helped us choose what to eat. Great!

Restaurant was very busy with a 20 min wait so we decided to eat in the bar. The bar was also busy with one bartender working the area. i had the burnt ends and a side salad which were very good. The best part of our meal was the excellent service that we receive with Josh in the bar. Always... More

Whenever we are in the Bozeman area, we often have dined at Famous Dave's Barbeque in Bozeman. We have always been very satisfied with our meals, service and have always left with full bellies! But this particiular time, we found the service and our meals did not live up to previous dining experiences at this particular location. No matter the... More

Had dinner here with the wife on a recent trip to Bozeman. We were tired and it was a short walk from our hotel. The food filled our stomachs, but this was not great bbq. I had a Spicy Hot Link Sandwich, it wasn't spicy and wasn't particularly warm either. However, the prices were very fair!

We arrived in Bozeman late in the afternoon and, after unpacking, went looking for a place for dinner. Unfortunately, we found Famous Dave's first. The "food" didn't even look good. It was not hot, looked over cooked and didn't taste all that great. Now, we have several Famous Dave's here in AZ, and have always enjoying their meals. I would... More

We visit Famous Dave’s quite frequently when traveling in the US, as it is a chain and the food is usually pretty decent. We shared a rack of ribs and tried the grilled pineapple for the first time. The grilled pineapple was a great treat, we thoroughly enjoyed it. The ribs were a little dry, but was still tasty. Our... More

Got into Bozeman late at night from the airport. Had the Texas brisket which was very good. Service at the bar was average. Perhaps it had been a long day for the bartender. Food came out quickly. All in all it did the trick. I would come back.
