Good Stuffed Baked Potato

Stopped in for lunch and had the brisket topped baked potato. The cole slaw is good as was the sweet tea. All available for a reasonable price.

I been eating Famous Dave's for a few years, since they opened a couple of restaurants in the Portland area. Mostly we drive to Cascade Station because it's closer. Used to really like Famous Dave's, but the last several months things seem to be going down hill. Their ribs I used to love, have been disappointing time after time lately,... More

Stopped by at lunch time during some shopping. Great service by Chris our waiter and food was good, fries are wedge similar to Jojo but not as fried. We should get one in our town. Good atmosphere with plenty of TV to watch sports.

I would drive or fly from SF to OR just to have this BBQ and you would too. We had a platter (they recommended for 1 person but we shared between 2) that had ribs, chicken and pulled pork. It was the best BBQ ever. I live in SF and we have fabulous food. I have lived I. KC and... More

Staff was awesome, Friendly and attentive. Food was great. Everything was hot and had great flavor. I have eaten at a few Famous Dave's but this one was better than the others.

My daughter and I stopped here for dinner. Wde both like barbeque and Dave's does have reasonably tasty barbeque. My brisket was good, especially with added sauce. My daughter's ribs were OK but dry (she has had much better). The portions were ample and the sides OK. That said, we paid too much for what we received. Given that an... More

This is a great chain restaurant, so you know what you are getting when you go. Service is always good and so is the BBQ. Highly recommend

Went with my boyfriend. I really liked their food, ordered half a rib which was way too much. Prepare to eat with your hands! Surprisingly not that expensive!

I stopped by for a quick meal and a couple beers. The food was very decent and reasonably priced however discovered that the beers in the bar which is a nice place to eat and watch sports were very expensive. I mean $6.75 for a 16 ounce microbrew is a little much especially during what is normally happy hour. My... More
