Good BBQ

The restaurant has a great menu, with a wide variety of BBQ options. There were some platters for 2 or 4, with different meats and sides you can choose, sample and share. We were all very happy with the meal except the corn on the Cobb was very watery and over cooked. It had no flavor at all. The... read more

We like to experience restaurants we have yet to visit while out of town so we used trip advisor to locate one around the area we were staying at. Famous Dave's came up so we went for it. We really expected the place to be busy on a Saturday night but it wasn't which scared us. We thought that if... More

Every time I visit, I have the catfish fingers, and they are always great. The remoulade dipping sauce is a great accompaniment. Grilled pineapple steaks add to the meal as well. Service is good, prices o.k.

It was preety good. The only complaint on the food is the sauce they used on my mom's Georgia chopped pork sandwich...it was the sauce they put on meat, not the bbq sauce, and it was almost inedible! They even put a cup on my plate and I tasted it but did not eat it. She scraped off what she... More

The taste is great. I loved the viarity of the sauces. Especially the xxxhot one. The different meat tasted very delicious. The beer along the BBQ was just fine. Average prices. Service is nice, helpful and friendly.

How can you go wrong with famous Daves. Come hungry and leave full. I had a combo platter with some wings and ribs. When I eat at any Famous Daves, I never leave disappointed.

First timer! That large food platter with everything was a great deal for a couple. The flavor from the meat to the sides were all on point. Dessert, mercy banana pudding was super and very large. All worth the money. Service was quick and friendly.

The catfish strips are awesome, Burnt ends are even better, the wings.... Are really good!! Lots of sauces are available, the corn bread muffins are sweet and various sides are great as well. Really good food, shareable plates and great specials, they even have curb side to go service.

We have eaten in this restaurant several times and you can always count on the food and the service to be spectacular!!! The barbeque ribs are my favorite, and of course the pulled pork is some of the best anywhere....in my opinion. You definitely need to try the bread pudding, some of the best I have ever had! Please don't... More
