Super busy, friendly and fast

Arrived Saturday night around 10:30...they close at 11:00. Place was packed and had a 20 minute wait. I spotted a two top table and asked if they would squeeze 3 of us there. They happily grabbed an extra chair and seated us. Service was prompt, friendly, food was great. Because our table was so... read more

We've eaten in several Famous Dave's and have always been happy. I had the beef and barbeque chicken. The chicken was good, but the beef was very fatty. Ate it anyway. Next time I will complain. Be cautious.

Restaurant was pretty busy. We got a table and had a nice server with delightful Russian accent. Food was very expensive for just BBQ. Brisket was bland, not much smoke flavor. Several different sauces you could try. Sides were just OK.

We were at the Dells and several of us were craving brisket and ribs. Although our brisket was tender, it was quite fatty. The ribs were enjoyed by those who ordered it though. Others in our party enjoyed their burgers and fries.

Our first stop in Wisconsin. Rib tips were good. Ribs were not. BBQ chicken was rubbery. Corn bread was fantastic. Service was slow. Put us at a table between 2 doors that people were in and out of 9 times.

Great food but the same price as in Canada! The exchange made it even more expensive. We saw only one Canadian familly there.

I occasionally eat in the restuarant, but most of the time , I call in an order and pick it up. The food is always excellent, and the service is fast and friendly! I absolutely love their ribs, cole slaw and corn bread!

We have been to famous faces before and it was delicious. This time was disappointing. I got the $17.99 appetizer for my meal and it was inconsistent .... Meaning the onion shoestrings were cold but the meat was hot. The small short ribs were tough and over cooked. The chicken was good. I asked for mild BBQ sauce and was... More

Awesome location of Famous Dave's. The service was very good, the time of the day we went to eat it was not busy. Excellent food, great amount of food and service. Prices very reasonable, specially after eating in a smaller restaurant and with higher prices. Love the variety of sauces right on the table.

Longer wait than we're used to at a Famous Dave's, but the food was still good! Good choice for a family with multiple age groups.
