I'm a huge fan of Famous Dave's chopped pork, and this did not disappoint. Good service, and easy to find near the mall. This location is the only FD's I have been too, that provides MINI CORNBREAD MUFFINS as a mini appetizer. I saved mine until after the meal for dessert.

Before I moved to the area and tasted really good BBQ I thought Dave's was good (for a chain). But after going back now following experiences at other restaurants it's just 'ok.' Service was very good but their food is too salty and 'boring.'

As we drove in, I said "not many cars for Saturday night." But, we were tired from driving and wanted BBQ since we were in TN. Should have followed our instinct! It was awful. Meat was ok but sauce had a strange flavor. Every side seemed to have an off ingredient added. Server was nice, but for an empty restaurant,... More

Chain BBQ places can be hit or miss. Decided to try Famous Dave's on the way to Nashville, TN. The burnt ends were absolutely perfect. Tender, smoky, with a sticky sweet BBQ sauce. Will definitely have to try again!

We hadn't been to Famous Dave's in a year or two. My husband, myself and our 5 year old stopped in on a Saturday, early evening before the dinner crowds arrived. Our wait time was about ten minutes. We were seated at a booth in the bar area. We had 2-3 different servers - not sure if this was by... More

I was here on business and ate dinner here. They have a wide variety of menu choices and everything looked very tasty. I enjoyed the ribs, corn and greens on the side. They have 4 or 5 different BBQ sauces to choose from right on the tables as well. Reasonable prices also.

I stopped by for a quick lunch and ended up having a very good meal at our local Famous Dave's in the Cool Springs area. Since Wed is 55 cents Wing Day, I had to order one of my favorites. I always get them "naked" with the Buffalo sauce on the side. The naked wings are coated with mild and... More

Good BBQ. Try the bbq tacos and the burnt ends. They have many sauces to try. Devil's spit is our favorite.

Chopped pork plate was very salty. Seemed to have so much seasoning that you really couldn't taste the meat. We could only eat a couple bites of it. The brisket was just okay. We had "burnt ends" for an appetizer. They are not true burnt ends - just small bites of pork. The food was not warm at all. We... More

Lots of BBQ places around here but brisket last night at Famous Dave's was best of the group. The brisket was perfectly smoked and so good. The service was friendly and the prices were okay. We'll come back to try other things on the menu.
