Famous for BBQ

Recommended as one of the restaurants to try by the front desk clerk at our hotel, we opted for BBQ tonight. Good service by pleasant staff. I had the brisket which had a nice smoke ring on it and was loaded on top of white bread. The table had a selection of BBQ sauces you could add to the sauce... read more

After leaving IHOP for lack of service we came to Famous Daves. The greeter was a very friendly young man. Our server was ok. And the food was fine.

Famous Dave's is a chain so you know what to expect no matter which one you go to. Food was good, served quickly and staff was attentive. Wish they would bring back the cooked sliced apples.

What an awesome experience... With short notice, they secured an area for our softball team and parents. Food was great and the service was phenomenal. From the smallest of requests to the large orders, the staff delivered top rated service. Our team actually yelled "Outstanding" just before leaving... We will return!

On his birthday or Father's day...my husband's favorite place to go is Dave's--for the Devil's Spit burger! The chicken and rice soup with a cornbread muffin is great--and their chicken is delicious. As others mentioned...the brisket should be avoided! The bar area is fun, with tv's everywhere--or opt for the restaurant section. Everywhere you look are fun, nostalgic decorations. Staff... More

Everything was great, the food, the decor, the waitress was fantastic, we will definitly be back. The combo appetizer is a delicious variety and enough for a meal. The whole experience made you feel they appreciated your patronage.

The ribs were 100% perfect. Chicken was awesome as were all the sides. This trip the brisket was terrible. It was dry and pasty. I told the manager and they brought me some hot sorta moist but still not as good as it has been in past brisket. Overall this trip was above average. But my favorite food is brisket,... More
