Brisket Delight!

I had the Brisket YUM! the jalapeno mac and cheese is also soooo good!! I happened to see on the menu a dipping sauce for the wings called Pineapple something but I asked for a side of it instead of the bbq sauce for the brisket and damn it was by far the best sauce I've ever had! Can't wait... read more

Amazing! Our server was friendly enough but nothing worth shouting about. Having said that, the food was amazing. AMAZING I TELL YOU! The corn bread muffins were heaven, could have eaten 20 of them easily. I had the chopped pork. So freaking good. Seriously good. The sauces were all really tasty! Okay, here's what prompted me to write a review... More

If you're looking for good BBQ, make a u turn when you get to their parking lot. You're better off gnawing on some roadkill that's been baking on the asphalt, marinating in motor oil all day. This place is bad and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. I'm from Texas, the land of BBQ, and I can tell you I've... More

When this Famous Dave's opened in Everett a few years ago, we went there fairly frequently. However, we began to experience poor customer service from the wait staff, and the food was not consistently good. Sometimes the meat would taste juicy and fresh, sometimes it tasted old and was very dried out. The sides were not consistently the same quality,... More

Excellent food every time we have dinner, which I about once a month. We signed up for emails and get birthday coupons, but just want it in between. There is never a time we do not feel well fed, satisfied with the service and the enjoy the atmosphere. We love this place.

Make sure you have plenty of time because it took us over 30 min to get out food. Apparently mine had been sitting there a while because it was cold. Everyone else really liked their food.

Of all the visits to these franchise restaurants, the uniformity of the service and product is notable. Casual is the dress and noisy is the atmosphere. However, consistency of quality for some BBQ menu items remains an issue. Often, when the "Sides" are considered, the broccoli may be either wilty, or taste flat on one visit, and buttery, crisp and... More

Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted and escorted to our booth. The aromas were exquisite coming from the kitchen area near us. Our server came to our table, greeted us, took our drink orders and left. After 15 minutes or more, just as we were getting up to leave, another server, Lena, came and asked us if a server... More

Best BBQ for miles. Several sauces to choose from. Pulled brisket sandwich is super and their fire pickles are amazing. Great waitstaff makes this a must try if you have never been. Highly recommend it.
