Fast Service with a Smile

It was a busy time to go, but my daughter and I were hungry. We were greeted with a smile, seated promptly, and didn't have to wait long for pre-service. My daughter loved her shake, my food was gone in less than 5 minutes and tasted great. Once we were finished we didn't have to wait for the bill... read more

We visited last in April, my review from that visit is here in the list. As I said in that review, we used to really enjoy eating at Famous Dave's but it seems to slipping and we had decided to stop eating there completely. I keep reading all the great reviews since then, so we thought we would give it... More

The food was great at this place. The price wasn't that bad and the service was great. Everyone was very nice. Will be back soon.

I had a 1/2 rack of baby back ribs, which were over cooked. The Mac and cheese has a bite to it so be ready. My husband had the chopped pork and said it was ok. Having lived in Memphis I am very picky about my ribs, so if you're not picky you might like them, if your standards are... More

Had a good dinner here with a group of 10. 4 of us (all adults) had the family meal I think it was called. Quite large with ribs, brisket, bbq chicken, corn on the cob, coleslaw, beans and fries. Very filling and very tasty.

If you want great ribs or smoked meats find a small local place. If you want fake old decor and fake smoke, try this place. I had the brisket, it was not tender nor rubbed with much spice. The fries are very good. The service was just ok.

We were flying out but made time to grab some dinner here. I love Famous Dave's food. Service was good and fast. The food was awesome. We mentioned we were in a hurry and they brought out to go boxes and the check right away.

We had a group dinner at Famous Dave's on a Monday and the wait was about 20 minutes. Our waiter was very attentive and quick to take our order and checked on us constantly. The manager also came by to see how things were. I ordered the Georgia chopped pork and it came with two sides ( I chose coleslaw... More

One of our favorite chains. Went for Fathers Day. Didn't take too long for our group of 8 to be seated and service was excellent. Food was usual great and didn't take too long to arrive.
