Sweet!

Beautiful cabin-like ambience, good BBQ and sauces of several kinds. The portions were huge and the service was adequate, not inspired. There are no choices of Sugar Free sauces or rubs so it is a problem for diabetics. You can order soups and burgers though. All in all, its a pretty place to... read more

We left our hotel in search of food and found this place. We ordered a full rack of ribs to share, had the St. Louis rub on them. They were good, but very spicy.

My wife loves the place, but she doesn't like to have BBQ sauce all over her face and fingers. To me BBQ has to be finger lickin' good. The chickens they use are midgets which is my go-to dish. I wish I loved the place, but it's only okay. I'm sure I'm in the minority as they've spread across the... More

First time and would definitely go back. Debbie was our waitress and so friendly. We mentioned it was our first time and they gave a sauce demonstration with chips. Fun experience and good food.

He had the Stacked burger and said it was the best ever! Hot stuff hot, cold stuff (lettuce and tomatoes) cold. Sauce was excellent, no fat in the meat, yet super tasty and not dried out. Beans were excellent. Pineapple steaks - yummy! Will continue to eat here whenever in the area!

Was very happy to see that there was a Famous Dave's BBQ near my hotel Only wish the sides were a little larger. Awesome ribs, delish baked beans, very good cole slaw.

The food was great, hot and served fast! My husband had the burnt tip brisket sandwich and I had the BBQ Pulled Pork stuffed baked potato. It was delicious. Enjoyed talking to the staff and getting some information about the area.

We had arrived late to the city of Missoula and were in search of something other than fast food. Many sit-down restaurants were closed or closing, but Famous Dave's was still open. The food was good (wife had salmon and I had beef brisket) and the service was great (host/hostess and waiter/waitress), and at a good price. One notable thing... More

It was our first time to Famous Dave BBQ - the food was very good and the service was great. I was worried because my son can't have meat, pork, or chicken - they did have a fish or vegetable option for him. Everyone left happy.

We visited Famous Dave's a couple of years ago and we were very happy about going there again when we planned our trip. We were not disappointed in the least. Our server Ericka,was super friendly and efficient. The manager bought out some wings for us to sample. We sat on the patio as it was a very gorgeous evening. Our... More
