Pleasantly surprised

We were driving thru town on our vacation and stopped on a whim to grab something to eat. I had very low expectations but was surprised. The food and service was very good. The meat was better than my sides but it was all tasty and good size portions. I would go back again.

We went to kalispell for the day and stopped at famous Daves and a few weeks later I was going through my bank statement and they returned my purchase and did another one for more. Don't pay with cards pay cash!!!!! They have no right to do that.

Good Texas BBQ. The sharing platters are good value and you get a chance to try several of the porteins. Good beer selection including a real beer flight sampler... You choose 4 from a list of about 12

We stopped by and got right in. They were busy but not full. We ordered and it took over 30 minutes to receive our food. The idea... More

Be ready to wait. They are always busy every time we have ever been here. The food is great but not cheap. The service is o.k. The drink always seem to take forever to get to the table. Maybe it is because the bar is always full when we have been there. Overall good experience.

The food arrived in a very reasonable amount of time and all orders were correct. The food was delicious. And I feel very reasonably priced. I would definitely go... More

Service was a little slow the evening we ate there, but they were extremely busy. The food was actually really good for a "chain" BBQ joint.
