My son and I love BBQ so we came back here for some lunch one Sunday afternoon. It was 1PM and for some reason the TVs were all tuned to the Packers football game on FOX. This ain't Green Bay! I asked our server if she could switch the TV to CBS so we could watch the Ravens. About 10... More

Famous Dave's serves a great selection of BBQ from ribs, chicken to brisket. The meat is smoky with a tangy BBQ sauce. There is a nice selection of sides to accompany their BBQ offerings followed by a nice, rich dessert selection if you can find some room. The prices are reasonable along with snappy, friendly service.

The best muffins I have ever had - reminds me of cake. BBQ is way to salty and hides the original flavors. Folks get over your corn. It is pure mush. Do a different veggie maybe salad because the corn sits in a pot of water all day.

I love barbeque! But I love when you can taste the meat so I often order the ribs naked so they're not drowning in sauce. I ordered the naked ribs. They were dry, chewy and had little flavor. The server was very nice and helpful. The sides were also nothing to brag about. All in all I was very disappointed.... More
