Good Ribs, needs a scrubbin!

I have eaten at Famous Dave a few times. I never was super impressed. I thought the ribs had some good smoke and taste. I recently revisited and decided to try a chicken dish and it was very tasty and a large portion. My husband ordered the burger platter, and I don't think he left more than one... read more

Came here with some friends and we didn't wait at all. Sat bear the nice fireplace underneath an antler chandelier. I ordered the Texas brisket with coleslaw and fries. The brisket had a very nice flavor, but the portion of the fries were lacking. The meal comes with corn bread that tasted like your grandmothers. Tried the bread pudding, highly... More

We always enjoy eating here. They have really good ribs, but they also have other dishes too. Appetizers and desserts are good too. Portions are large and the service is good. We never feel rushed. Most of the time we leave with a goody bag. They have recently changed the menu and I miss some of my favorites. The restaurant... More

We've eaten here numerous times. The food is good and the service was good. The decor is rustic, but the ambience does not match. Looking to be transported to the South when entering, but no such thing happened. There was no wait upon our arrival at 1pm. It was not busy at all. The place settings were very modern for... More

Came here with the family on a Sunday. Seating took a little long 20 minutes. (when you have 3 kids, it is very long). Ordered the All-American BBQ Feast which is: a full slab of St. Louis-style spareribs, a whole country-roasted chicken, 1/2 lb. of either Texas beef brisket or Georgia chopped pork, creamy coleslaw, famous fries, wilbur beans, four...

Resturant is decorated like the inside of a rustic log cabin, really awesome things to look at. A huge fireplace is warm and inviting. The food is delicious! Ribs, pulled pork and catfish! Each dish comes with a piece of corn bread that is to die for! Prices are great and you def get your monies worth!

We eat here about once a month and sometimes get takeout. The food has always been good and the wait staff attentive. We like the Cajun chicken sandwich but it is a little bit spicy. The baby back ribs are great and if you are really hungry, get the feast. MIT is awesome.

We visited on a Saturday night with a party of eight to celebrate a birthday. We had reservations and our table was ready. Our server was prompt, friendly and knowledgable. To start, a couple of us ordered the wing basket and the chicken fingers while the rest of us shared a rack of the St Louis ribs as an appetizer.... More
