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

The BBQ sauce is not good. The meat was dry. Nothing at all about going here wanted to make me go back. Meat wasn't seasoned well, just yuck!

A full slab of St. Louis-style spareribs, a whole chicken, 1/2 lb. of either Texas beef brisket or Georgia chopped pork, coleslaw, Famous Fries, Wilbur Beans, four corn-on-the-cob, and four corn bread muffins. I love this place, my wife says I shouldn't eat like that - OOPS

The BBQ was just okay. Service was sloppy and slow. The place was so jammed and noisy that is was only a pleasure to finish and leave. It was so smokey that non-smokers like us were getting sick. Perhaps we hit a bad night. When I tried the order ahead and take out I was also disappointed at the poor... More

Famous Dave's has a large variety of good BBQ food along with salads and side dishes. The portions are large and the family feasts will feed more than expected, with plenty of leftovers to take home. The atmosphere is very casual and comfortable
