It should have been 5 star

When busy working on a project, we ran out to the location for a quick dinner. The very empty parking lot was surprise and we decided to make our order curbside pickup. The speed was ok- about 12 minutes and the taste was ok too. The server who came to car was very outgoing and seemed nice in the... read more

The cornbread muffins here are amazing! I think they drizzle them with a honey glaze, which makes for a deliciously sweet cornbread treat after the flavorful BBQ!

Always take the advice of good hotel employees. Ask them were they would eat and this was the place for BBQ

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

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 cornbread... 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.
