We love taking advantage of the specials they are constantly ordering which makes eating out more reasonable and affordable. The food is consistantly good as is the service.

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.

The best rib's in town. We love eating in the bar. Even though we don't drink. But there is one waitress that is so rude sadly. We now eat in the front of the house most always. Sad there has to be people that way. She was just beyond rude. Yet the other young lady working in the bar (now... More

Had dinner with my friends at Famous Dave's. We sat at the bar. It was strange but the staff didn't seem to be able to keep up with their guests. They were all very friendly and helpful but we had to wait several times for a long enough period of time that we were aware we were waiting. On the... More

Good place to go get your Bar-B-Q fix. Staff is attentive, and there's a good selection on the menu. Also a good selection in the Bar, if you need a Beer while waiting for a Table.

We went there for their famous beef brisket and first ordered drinks. When waitress delivered our drinks she said the brisket wouldn't be ready for two hours. This was during the dinner hour. What a disappointment! That was the reason we picked this restaurant.

Went there last weekend, it was busy as it would be on Friday night. Was told 15 minute wait and it was 10, seated away from bar which is nice less noise. Waitress was good and came back several times to ensure we were filled up w/ ice tea and if anything was needed. Food was decent, it was hot... More

The best part is the sauces.. Playing around with the different sauces and combining them. The baroque favors are great and it is perfect for those who appreciate flavor. It is also nice to have the choices they have for sides.

We ate dinner here one night at about 5:30. The place was almost empty. We were seated right away but the server didn't come by for almost 15 minutes. I had the chicken strips and my husband had bbq pork sandwich. Both were served cold and seemed old. The side of potatoes were served in a dirty dish and trying... More

This is the only one in the Tri Cities (Pasco-Kennewick-Richland) and if you stay in Pasco or Richland there is a long drive to get there and a GPS sure helps at night. Arrived at 7:30PM and the place was still full of families and friendly folks---was seated right away---got the Baby Backs for both of us...As usual the broccoli... More
