I use to love going to Famous Dave's. I went last night and ordered the ribs. The ribs were small and I had to cut the rack with a knife. They were tough and small and ice cold inside. They use to give you twice as much food a couple of years ago. You have to order the half of... More

We went as a family, and it was good. I love the variety here, and that you get two sides with every entrée. The sides, often times, are better than the main course for me (that's a compliment, not a criticism.) I got the ribs, ordered them dry, as I like to sample the different barbecue sauces that they leave... More

Took my nephew out for lunch and boy do I regret it. Worst brisket I've ever had. Not tender at all. Good flavor. But, not tender at all! Good service, though.

We ordered the burnt ends. They were neither burnt nor were they ends. They were just thick, rubbery, barely cooked globs of I don't know what. They had no flavor whatsoever. Like giant erasers. We also ordered ribs. Neither of us enjoyed them. They were so fatty with no real meat on them to speak of. The qualify was just... More

Ordered a variety of menu items and all were excellent especially the ribs, tips and brisket. Service was very good. Would definitely go back.

We always liked this place. Something is going on. Went for lunch. Was not offered lunch menu. Felt like a bait and switch. Incompetent management waiting on tables. Not offered chips. Will not go back!

BBQ chains scare me normally, but I was pleasantly surprised at this Famous Dave's. The sauces are solid - none of them are insanely spicy, but they have a decent kick. The baby back ribs are moist and the brisket very tender. The mac n' cheese has a delightful spice to it. They post a lot of coupons, so definitely... More
