Better the third time

Since this is my wife's guilty pleasure, we stopped in to this location this past weekend. Although we have been before, I decided to change thins up and ordered the baby back ribs - and am happy I did! The ribs were very tasty and came with a couple of sides. I can eat a lot, but with the... read more

Great place for a family meal of BBQ. Got great service from a waitress named Katie, perfect. Clean restaurant with a menu that has a good bit of variety. So long as you want BBQ.

There were so many choices but we opted for Famous Dave's. We were not disappointed. Service was excellent and food was as promised. We had brisket and ribs - very yummy - you will have to wash your hands before and after and make sure there is nothing on your face. Beer choices were great as was the wine. It's... More

I had lunch there with friends and it was busy in the bar. Service was friendly and our booth comfortable. The pulled pork and brisket were a bit dry but the ribs were good as were the salads. We had to ask for extra Bar-B-Q sauce. Average food for luncheon special prices.

Late in the evening, my pregnant wife asked me to find a steak salad. Most restaurants were closed by that time, so I decided to give Famous Dave's a try. The person at the bar took my order and had it ready in minutes! While I waited, several other staff greeted me and checked to see if I needed anything.... More

Just traveling thru and decided to stop here. Glad we did. It was a Saturday so although it was busy we just had to wait ten minutes to be seated on tall stools at a small table for two. The atmosphere was nice and not too noisy but a bit cramped. The staff was very friendly. The food took a... More

We went in with our big family from Oklahoma--5 adults, two kids, and a baby. Our server was very friendly and knowledgable. My sis-in-law said it was the best brisket sandwich she had ever had. We also had ribs, salmon, and chicken, which we are all delish. There are a few craft beers available. Price is reasonable.

Good place to take the kids & friends for barbecue style food. Service is fast and friendly. My husband & I usually go here for lunch or an early dinner so rarely is there a wait for a table. It is not a fancy or upscale place but a family friendly rib joint.
