Very limited selection of beer. My ribs were dry wifes brisket was dry too. Food tasted ok good smoke flavor just dryed out. Service was real slow waitress seemed aloof. The free cornbread muffins were pretty good though.

Southern food served with southern hospitality. Enough food to feed an army with each serving. Super delicious. Service was great, quick, helpful and appreciated.

Famous Dave's hits the mark with their amazing St Louis style ribs ! All the BBQ is wonderful but the ribs earn 5 stars. Tender smoked ribs with perfect seasoning ..fall off the bone tender. Several house made bbq sauces are on each table . Great choices all ! Side dishes are excellent. On this trip my table enjoyed baked... More

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

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.

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.
