We've had Famous Dave's a year ago in Ohio and it was great especially the dessert banana pudding and so this time around we were in Tennessee and wanted dessert and said what better place than Famous Dave's for banana pudding. It was a quick in and out dessert that was worth every bite. The cup is usually good for... More

The food and service here are pretty good. I don't eat at FD as much as I used to because I've cut down on my intake of pork for health reasons, but I've never had a bad meal here.

Memphis style ribs are the best I've had! Nice cozy atmosphere. A perfect stop to refuel our energy and stretch our legs while driving home from Georgia. The grilled pineapple side was quite tasty also. A great family restaurant.

On our return home from Chattanooga this December we stopped into Famous Dave's. The waitress was quick taking our order and brought us 3 drink refills without us having to ask for them. Our plates came to the table with huge portions of mouth watering BBQ.

A group of 30+ friends had lunch and an informal Christmas gift exchange on a Saturday for lunch. Our servers did a good job taking the orders and delivering the food, and we did get several opportunities to get refills. I got their "Spit'n Hot" cheeseburger which had pepperjack cheese, jalapeno bacon, and their signature hottest sauce on a fresh... More

Our waitress, Amber, was very good. Thanks for great service, Amber! I am not a vegetarian but my friend, travelling with me to a conference, is. But both of looked for a healthy salad and we found one, and we could leave off the chicken and have a good meal anyway. There is plenty of meat on the menu for... More

Plenty to choose from, large portions and very helpful staff. As for the BBQ meat, I thought it was OK but not anything i would go out of my way for.

Had lunch here - I'd seek this restaurant out. Had a great BBQ sandwich. Being from Texas, I have BBQ often and this was among the best I've had. Reasonable price and fast service

I look forward to going to a Famous Dave's whenever I am traveling and there is one in the area. Excellent barbecue and nice Western decor. The service was quick and the food hot and good. I had a combo platter with excellent rib tips and brisket, which was good too, but not as plentiful. My colleague loved the chicken.
