John was our lunch time server and we both had the meat combo. Barb-q chicken was tender and I had the Catfish for a side, and my Wife, the pulled pork. Ample servings and John did an excellent job as a Server!

I have seen some newer reviews that this restaurant is not as good as it used to be, but we did not think that true. We were there on a busy night, so the food was freshly prepared, not dry at all as noted in some reviews.

Lots of choices in meats, sauces, sides, drinks and reasonably easy on the budget. Definitely a go to place when here for a swim meet or visiting old friends. It can get busy though even given the size of the place. Staff is very accommodating and helpful. Manager correctly identified the problem with one of our racks of ribs and... More

I have been here a couple of times. The price is good for what you get. My favorite dish at this particular restaurant is the Burnt Ends Sandwich on the lunch menu. It is brisket that has been seared and caramelized. I have never had bad food or service at this location. The food is served fast and they have... More

We stopped at FD on north Reserve to grab a quick snack one afternoon while we were visiting in Missoula. Great and tasty chili, OK catfish appetizer. Good service.

I have visited Famous Dave's in Missoula twice in the past month, while on vacation. It offers delicious BBQ-style delights, and all of our meals have been excellent. They were very accommodating to my cousin's allergies, checking ingredients in sauces & wings to make sure he could have them. Also, just last night, our grilled pineapple was extra spicy so... More

Went with friends who were visiting town as well. I have been several times before. Meals are tastie and consistent. Prices are reasonable. With quick service and comfortably air conditioned as well as convenient location to I 90 and motels this is a good choice for travelers.

We stopped in for an afternoon lunch after we had memories of the one that was located in Tallahassee , Fl. I had the pulled BQ chicken lunch salad & my husband had BQ Chicken Plate which were both very good and good service! We would try again & recommend !👍👍

We had heard of this restaurant chain but had never visited one of their properties. We saw this one while on vacation in Montana and decided to give it a try. To get the best scope of the menu options we ordered the "1/2 Feast for 2". This gave us a sampling of all of the BBQ entrees (ribs, brisket... More

Being from Wisconsin, I wondered if the food would be the same. Sure was. If you like Famous Dave's or just ribs, it's good eatin'. And Missoula is beautiful!
