Ate here the other night with my wife and daughter. By the recommendation of the waitress, we got the "dinner for two" for the 3 of us as the portions would be more than adequate and she was right. The dinner consisted of BBQ ribs, chicken, pork, baked beans, corn - all very good. Waitress was very good, fast turnaround... More

If you are looking for a decent BBQ restaurant with good service, Famous Dave's is a good choice. We've been to several Famous Dave's Restaurants and they are consistently good and the staff are well trained. This place did give a Military Discount, which was a plus. We would stop here again.

Been to Famous Dave's several times before in different areas. The service was great. The meal quality and portion size was "meh".

My children are addicted to Famous Dave's food, and anytime we travel I am required to seek one out. The food is always pretty much spot on for consistency. This particular location in Rapid city had very good service. We did, however, find some of the food was quite fatty on this particular dining experience. Something we hadn't experienced before....

Although famous for their brisket (well-deserved), the most enjoyable part of a visit to Famous Dave's is the banana pudding. You have to get there before the noon rush to get your portion as it does sell out. Highly recommended.

Had to wait a few minutes for a table but it was well worth the wait. The ribs are GREAT. We liked the fact that you got to choose you sauce. Our waiter was very new and it seemed like the entire staff was there to help him out. That was some great teamwork, they must have a good manager.

A front desk person from our lodging site recommended Famous Dave's for the best Bar-b-cue. They were right. It was my wife's favorite, bar none!
