Great Ribs

We had lunch here upon arriving in town. They have a great selection of BBQ on the menu. I opted for the half slab of baby back ribs. What I really liked is they offer them Memphis style with a dry rub. They were very delicious! They also have a lunch special where you can order one or two... read more

If you love BBQ, you'll love Dave's. I always try something different whenever I go there. It has all been extremely tasty.

Took a team of 8 folks here from work. We were visiting the area and this restaurant was recommended to us. To be honest we wont be going back. The place was empty but they still kept us waiting 15 minutes. We then proceeded to order drinks to start. They took forever and the server came back advising the tap... More

Husband's pulled pork was too tough to eat. My brisket was 50% fat. The corn muffins were excellent, but $100 for dinner for 4 is way too much for just good bread and some potato chips.

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 they have, lots of it and prepared very well.... 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
