Good Ole Ribs.

If you like ribs try it out while you are there. I do not believe you will be disappointed. Many sides to choose from and not over priced. Share one of the meals .... it's a lot of food.

Went in to have a drink and ribs at the bar. Not bad but nothing to write home about however the bartender was very attentive.

Picked up a family platter last night, we had plenty of food (6 people) included were fries, ribs, chicken sliced beef, bbq beans and we ordered a large Garlic potatoe. As always the meat is very tender, great flavoring and there was plenty for all. They have a separate window inside for "to go" pick-ups, which makes it very easy.... More

My husband and I love ribs. Back in Denmark they just don't know how to cook them, so we enjoy having ribs when we visit the USA. We had some before before Famous Daves, but they did not compare by a long shot. Really good ribs and we had a nice appetizer with 5 different things on that was equally... More

We dropped in late, around 8 pm, and were well taken care of. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The food was really good - beef and pork. They have many sauces to chose from and they pretty much all have a pretty good zing to them - my bald spot was sweating on what they called their mild... More

Walking distance from my hotel. Service relatively slow, BBQ chicken okay. My hometown Partons is better. Ah well, why should I expect good southern BBQ in las Vegas?

Traveling with another couple to Zion National Park and they suggested Famous Dave's for dinner since we were staying overnight in N, Las Vegas. I'm not a big fan of chain restaurants and always look for family run operations but I have to say that this was not bad. We had the Tuesday special a 12 piece rack of ribs... More

Gregory and TIffany were very welcoming and accommodating. This was the first time to eat at this franchise and you really have to like meat to eat there............lots of meat! My husband had the beef brisket and it was soft and mushy with a lot of fat. My 1/3 slab of ribs were better. The best part of the meal... More
