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. :(

The service was great and the BBQ were very good. Had dinner last year on our way through and we liked it so much we came back for another try. They didn't disappoint us.

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
