We ate at this restaurant 3 times when we stayed at the hotel next door. We ate different things every time. From their burgers, to their rib tips, to the appetizers, and even dessert, it was great food. And the service was always very pleasant. We ate 2 of the times as take out and the food stayed hot or... More

I took a client here recently and the food was very good and so was the service. I would recommend this restaurant. As it was a business meeting we stayed quite a while and they didn't seem irritated by that as some restaurants do.

We've been to a Famous Dave's before: we know what we can expect as far as menu choices and general food quality. Yet, each restaurant comes with its own unique circumstances. Here, the awful service taints any other points that might be in this place's favor. The place was not that busy, and they seemed to be adequately staffed. We... More

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. My son had a classic burger, and I had a "burnt ends" sandwich with cole slaw. The waitstaff were friendly and fast -- our food was... More

I stopped in for lunch for my first visit to the restaurant. I sat at the bar and was greeted promptly by a friendly server. 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. The food itself is why we keep coming back. The menu items taste great, and are consistently delivered with high quality at this location. The only issues I would bring... More

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.
