Good Value for Casual Dining

This is a favorite dining place -- especially their 'garbage lid' platter for families. This visit, I ordered the roasted half chicken with cole slaw and garlic potatoes. It was moist and juicy. The cole slaw was crisp, creamy and sweet. First time ordering the garlic potatoes. They were... read more

Generic Q that'll hit the spot if you aren't used to really good Q, like they have in Memphis or Austin. Family friendly.

I wanted to pass along a great Foodie tip... Famous Dave's has outstanding burgers, wings and a ribeye steak special Friday-Sunday that is a killer! The big fat juicy burgers have the flavor of quality meat. Many add on choices that makes them even tastier! The 12 oz. smoked ribeye special includes a loaded baked potato, toasted bread and a...

This is a great restaurant in Franklin, TN. The pulled pork is great, the fries are great, and the muffins are delicious. It's family friendly and a great place to eat.

Finally we found a great rib place. We stopped in for lunch and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of their food. I had 1/3 rack of ribs with 2 side. Beans, fries and sweet potato mashed were good. It was reasonably priced at under $13.00. The baby back ribs were meaty and cooked beautifully. I have not had ribs... More

My husband got the pulled pork. I got roasted chicken. They had the sauces on every table. I tasted each of them and they were all very good but I preferred to eat my chicken as it was. My husband chose several of the different sauces. We got to choose 2 sides with our meal. I chose corn on the... More

My company had a large group meeting here. We got a sampler of ribs, chicken, beef brisket, baked beans, cole slaw, cornbread, and macaroni. It was all good. They have several different bbq sauces. I definitely recommend it.

As a competition BBQ person myself I enjoyed every bite of Dave's BBQ. I know it's a chain, but they know what they are doing! There was no waiting around 2 pm and I was given the benefit of a lunch menu. The atmosphere was friendly and the server introduced himself as Famous Tim. Great recommendations on the burnt ends,...

Famous Dave's catered an office luncheon a couple weeks ago, and it was delivered on time and hot (which is very important). Everyone enjoyed the food (especially the brisket).
