Close to the hampton inn is the reason we chose this place. The food was outstanding. We arrived early and enjoyed the happy hour pricing. The choice of bbq sauces are plenty from mild to almost hot.

A roadhouse style bbq joint. I had a full rack of ribs with jalapeno mac and cheese and green beans, with a corn muffin. Ribs had a nice distinct smokey flavour. They were not fall off the bone ribs but the flavour was good. Dinner for two with a drink each, 54 bucks including tip, hard to beat.

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.
