We visited this restaurant on two occasions in the past two weeks. The servers are always upbeat and have a great attitude. The food is consistently good whether you eat sandwiches or want to share the garbage can lid which is filled with outstanding bbq.

We went to Dave's because we were told that they had good Mexican food. The best part of the meal was the beer. The food was fine mainly because we were hungry.

First time here. Prob the last time here. Just too many better options. Atmosphere was great. Service was great. Drinks were very good. Food was fair at best. Ribs were more like BBQ jerky. Brisket was fatty with small portions. All of the food was very salty.

I made sure to come here hungry and I still was unable to finish everything on my plate. The St Louis style bbq ribs here are the best anywhere in my book. I'm a fan of Famous Dave's bbq and sauces. I see why he's won so many awards. My favorite is the sweet and zesty sauce. Delicious corn bread... More

Food is very good, if you like ribs you will love theirs, they have all sorts of grades of hot for the ribs. I love salads and they have a good caesar salad too. They are known for their ribs and they are excellant. We were seated right away and have a great lunch also.

Had the rib tips and brisket on the two meat combo plate with jalapeno Mac n cheese, sweet cornbread muffin, sweet pickled onions/pickles and Texas toast. With a lil "devil's spit "bbq sauce and "Wilbur 's revenge" fire sauce on side. All I can say is wow, as I gulped down my Arnold Palmer and cooled off my taste buds!... More
