Very good!

We were recently in Franklin for a volleyball tournament and ate at Famous Daves. It was so good! I had the rib plate with fries and beans. Everything was good but the ribs were delicious! Also, the cornbread muffins are heavenly. Will definitely be back.

This was our first time at Famous Dave's, but I guarantee it will not be our last! Did some research on BBQ places and decided on FD's. From the moment we set foot in the place we were impressed. Decor, even down to the table decorations were impressive. Our server spent time going over the menu with us and was... More

It was my first time at Famous Dave's. Food was very good and service was excellent . We ordered a Feast For Two and it was enough. Recommended.

I'm a big fan of Famous Dave's rib tips and variety of sauces (Texas Pit being my favorite). I've eaten at locations all over the place and this location is no exception in the quality of the food, the service here, however, was not the greatest. Took forever for them to take our order and our drinks sat empty far... More

My husband I think nothing of driving 100 miles for some good Que so we were surprised when we tried Famous Daves for the first time. Despite what some folks think Nashville is Not a BBQ town. But this is pretty good try the pulled pork with the Texas style sauce. Prices are very good.

We actually ate here twice on our 5 day visit, so we must have enjoyed it. The first visit we had a salad and a sandwich. The brisket was very good. There are 6 sauces with different heat levels. Our waitress for our first trip was not great, but when we were leaving, we noticed there was a little sign... More

Though this restaurant, set in the midst of a vast and poorly-marked retail jungle, is an hour's drive from our house, we have enjoyed the ambiance and the barbecue. As is their practice, Famous Dave sent an email offer for my daughter's birthday, which could be exchanged either for a "Little Wilbur" child's meal or a $10 discount on other... More

Food was over the top. The service really good and down home. The chicken and pork is delicious and the brisket (ok). The sides are to die for--- love the baked beans!!! Also the rolls they serve (corn bread).... wow, like cake.

Barbecue is very good. The menu has a decent variety of choices in addition to the barbecue dishes. There are 6 (I think) different sauces from sweet to spicy. The family platter is a favorite which serves four easily. It is served on a garbage can lid. The corn muffins are exceptionally good - moist and a bit sweet. The... More

My family ate at Famous Dave's. We all thought it was very good. The service was great and the food was hot as it came out to us. No problems. It is a great place to eat.
