Great fair prices for the amount of food you get. The atmosphere is similar to TGIF and Applebees. The service is quicker than the above mentioned restaurants. Flavor packed with more sauces on the table.

We went for lunch and what a great place. Famous Scott walked us through the various sauces and did a great job describing the menu items. Great BBQ spot if you're around the Walden Galleria.

We happened to be talking about Famous Dave's. We were searching on our GPS for somewhere to eat and this restaurant popped up. It was after 3pm so we got the early bird price. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Our waitress checked on us to make sure we didn't need anything. Love their bar-b-que chicken.

The brisket appetizer was good and the the bbq chicken was perfect. I asked for mine without too much sauce on top.

Conveniently located on the other side of the highway from the popular Walden Galleria shopping mall, we stopped here with our entire family for lunch after a shopping expedition during the Christmas season.  Reception was friendly and  our waiter was excellent. Had a good sense of humour which we also appreciated. With 5 adults, including 3 young males, you would... More

I was in Buffalo for the long weekend with my husband and this particular Famous Dave's was in the parking lot of our hotel. We went there on our last night in town as we were so worn out from shopping we didn't want to venture too far. This was my first time at a U.S. barbeque restaurant. I'm sure... More

I'm another Famous Dave's customer who found the place simply because of its proximity to the Hampton Inn (a 1-minute walk across the parking lot - nice when the weather is inclement). Nothing fancy or high-falutin': Just great ribs, served by friendly staff in a down-home kind of atmosphere (if you excuse the TV sets showing every sport under the... More
