As we drove up to La Quinta Inn, the succulent aroma of barbecue wafted in the truck. We were exhausted from driving all day, so I called Famous Dave's to place a take-out order.

I was steered towards the sampler platter after I indicated I was looking for some variety. The sampler includes a brisket, pulled pork, chicken, ribs, a cornbread muffin, and two sides. You even get some... More

Famous Dave's has always served us well. The location is easy to reach from most of northern Davis county and the dining room is generally clean and the service good.

Decent bbq for a chain restaurant. Better local options around. If their bbq sauce wasn't so damn good, I would probably give them a 1 or 2.

Friends took us here for some great barbecue. Had the All-American feast for five of us. More than enough! It was all really good. I would try other famous Dave's based on the great experience we had here.

Not really my idea of BBQ. Been here 3 times and suffered from dried out food and food that never got heated. My daughter raved about the place. I think she is crazy. Goes to show you that people have different expectations. This place does not meet mine.
