Good BBQ

Have been back three times, all pretty consistent and positive events. Service is relatively quick, and the homemade chip appetizers are great. Friendly smiles have greeted me every time. The atmosphere is loud and lively. This is a good venue to take a large group who want meat. Meat is what... read more

My husband and I like the sandwiches the best. They have a delicious chopped pork sandwich that' we add coleslaw to. They serve a plate of fresh potato chips to try all their sauces. Pretty spicy for me but my husband likes most.

Service is very slow ! When the food arrived it was not even close to what was pictured. I and my daughter both ordered beef ribs like the picture on the menu, what we got was beef roast cut up not resembling ribs at all. The meal was the worst I have had from Famous Daves I won't be going... More

I use to like this place, but all this changed on veteran's day. I use to love their choice's, but the menu on-line was not what was offered. I read that Dave's was offering "one meat salute"...NOT! A great disappointment I must say. So I decided on ordering take-out of their appetizers: "burnt ends which was a joke. I was... More

This is a restaurant that a lot of 'reps' use to cater in for physicians. I happened to have been the at the office when they had this catered in. I am typically a 'salad' person but they do sandwiches and great dishes! They also include corn muffins, which are to 'die' for!!! A guilty pleasure!!

Love BBQ. Today I finished up a project and was still in my work clothes when I decided to treat myself to a slab of ribs. Knowing I was not dressed appropriately for the main dining area, I retreated to the bar where the full menu is available. Could not make up my mind on exactly which ribs, I ordered... More

When we want BBQ, this is where we head. It is so hard to find bad food here, even harder to pick just one food to eat. We usually get the trash can lid, lots of choices, more than enough food and my mouth is watering just thinking about it.
