Always great BBQ, but service was lacking.

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... read 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.

The service was the best thing about this place. It was wonderful. I hadn't eaten at a Famous Dave's in a while because the one I frequented (Florence, AL) closed a few years ago. The food was good, but not great like I remember it being. The cornbread, however, is insanely delicious. Our wonderful waiter kept them coming.

Too much fatty meat, too much salt, too much sugar. I know barbecue joints all all about these ingredients and yet, being a rib lover, I thought I'd try this place----it has "famous" in the restaurant name after all. So I ordered the ribs without sauce, exchanged fries with a baked potato, and got the coleslaw. The ribs were soooo... More

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.
