Wonderful meal with an awesome waitress. Love the Steak Ends appetizer. Ribs were delicious, especially the Memphis style. Burger/brisket was also very good. Whole family enjoyed the meal and the attention and bantering with the staff. Great Job!!!

Pros: Delicious food. We get the large nachos and feast for 2 which is more than enough for the 4 of us (2 adults 2 teenage girls). I think it is a good value ( hey, meat's not cheap ), and we always walk away with a doggie bag. Cons: I always eat too much. Not a great choice for... More

I've written a poor review on this location previously, based on service and cleanliness. The food is always great and this time was no exception. This visit was much better. We experienced great service and the restaurant was vey clean. The prices are creeping upward, but I guess everything is. My family really enjoyed our visit. I hope the trend... More

I had the burnt ends at lunch (they have 'em at dinner too) which were delicious and lean. It's kinda hard to find a place that offers burnt ends so I go here when I have a craving. Otherwise, the sides were okay---beans were pretty spicy for baked beans and the coleslaw was waaaay over dressed (which is so typical... More

This "Famous Dave's" was excellent. The food and service were in keeping with all the other Famous Dave's from coast to coast. You can count on a great dinner every time you go there...must do..

This Famous Dave's was exactly like the one we ate in Billings, MT. Great décor and the food was very good. We had good service and enjoyed the décor of the restaurant. It looked like it was a fairly new restaurant. Overall, a very good meal and another well managed Famous Dave's.

We got into town late on Sunday and most things were closed....we were thrilled when we saw Famous Dave's opened! They had a nice crowd. Ordered the ribs- very good! I liked all the sauce choices they had that we tried as well. The staff was friendly and we had a nice meal after a long trip!

efficient, clean and good lunch place. They don't have many thrifty specials, however, it has a good lunch crowd. It has a nice atmosphere. However, everyone in your party should be ready to eat meat with BBQ sauce.

About one meal in five has been good for us. The food (meat) is frequently gristly. The service is good and they keep a party-type atmosphere going on. They are easy to find at their location.

Everything is average. Expensive for average food. Stays open late. Good if you cant get a reservation somewhere else.
