Josh was GR8 & very conscientious in providing EVERYTHING I needed in my curbside order (right down to the plates, cutlery, napkins and wet-wipes)! Food is WONDERFUL & you get BOAT-LOADS of it for the price-TWO can easily share one entrée!!

It's not often that I enjoy every item that we get. Dave's was very good. The brisket was sliced correctly, not fatty. The pork was juicy. The beans were good, the cornbread good. Ok we did not eat the corn on the cob as it was frozen, but everything else including the choice of sauces was great. The service was... More

Yes, it's a barbecue place, but their burgers, made with the addition of beef brisket, seem to be the best around (we've done our own comparisons). Having been there several times, we observe that service is usually quite good, the food plentiful (maybe too much so), and that everything we've tried has been good (we are now rather stuck on...

I ordered the pulled pork with barbecue chips and steamed broccoli. The chips were the best part of the meal. Pork was a little fatty. For the price I was a little disappointed. $20 for a quick dinner.

I was excited when I saw this place after randomly leaving the highway for lunch. It's the type of place I usually like. We wanted to keep on driving, so I went in for carry-out. I got my wife a brisket-burger (hamburger with higher quality ground beef) and I got the brisket sandwich. Unfortunately my wife's burger was charred instead... More

I have not had good BBQ in years. Famous Daves has the best hot sauce in the world. Wilber's Revenge.

My husband and I stopped in after a long day of shopping for a car. I got the baked potato with barbecue chicken, bacon and cheese. It was enough to fill me. My husband got the burger. He also said his was good. Our waiter, who was very friendly recommended one of their famous desserts. We got the banana pudding... More

As my wife and I often do we tried another restaurant where we had never eaten. I love Bar-B-Que so I was happy when Deb suggested we try Famous Dave's since we were in the area. Both of us were happy with her food and the service was very good. If you like Bar-B-Que I don't think you will be... More

Atmosphere always enjoyable at this chain. Best catfish I have ever had-not just the standard breading. Ribs were delicious as well. I have never had a bad meal here.

Our second trip here, but definitely not our last. We like to stop here on our way through town. Excellent food, friendly staff, laid back atmosphere, reasonable prices. Good BBQ with a variety of sauces. Famous Roby took great care of us and was entertaining. Well done!
