Great service - good food

Getting sick an hour or so after eating at famous Dave's in Missoula. I guess we are slow learners. My wife and I have eaten there three times recently during trips to Missoula from out of town. While the food tastes very good, two out of the three trips one of us has gotten very ill within an hour or... More

Only give this place a 3 star the food overall was just plain nothing special ,, the string onion rigs were good along with my corn muffin. I had the Texas Beef brisket , the bark was very hard and crispy , very dry in the middle and the portions were small at best. On the service side we had... More

OK...if a Restaurant claims to serve until 11 PM, then why do you get the impression they were ready to close the doors at 9 PM. We were seated at 8:20 and apparently only one Server on the floor in the Dining area....2-3 tables occupied and it took us 10 minutes just to get water on the table.....as the "Bus... More

The food is quite good, but we continue to be disappointed at the portion sizes and formula style of the eatery. I encourage Dave to go the family-style Rib Joint preparation and delivery. Eaters will be much happier. I do enjoy their wild rice soup and corn bread muffins.

We got the big family meal that came on a garbage can lid. Added some steamed broccoli for greens. Plenty for our group of 8 people. Great staff, great food.

I do not go out for ribs too often, but was I happily surprised when my wife and i visited Dave's BBQ. This is what I remember great ribs taste. The food was perfect when it arrived at the table, and the service was great. Clearly they know you will get your fingers dirty so they offer up plenty of... More

My boyfriend & I had been driving for hours and just needed a place to stop for a cold drink, and to call some motels to find a room for the night. We like the Famous Dave's chain, so popped in there. Due to the Labor Day weekend, most rooms seemed to be filled. The female bartender (Chelle?) and another... More

The food was amazing and very reasonably priced. We left there stuffed. I enjoyed looking at all the decor inside. I wish I would have taken pictures for ideas on decorating!
