Great Portions

Good eats near the mall if you're in that area. not the best BBQ in WNY, but a great option nonetheless. Prices are fair and you get a TON of food, so come hungry. Wait times can be a bit long because of proximity to the mall, especially on the weekend, but still worth the wait.

Fed 4 people with a little leftover. We had very good service and our server brought us a cup of momemade potato chips to dip our sauce in to try them all. We told him we have not been there in many years so might not do this all the time. We had a groupon and saved a bit over... More

I visited this location twice for Memphis Ribs since it is a stone's throw from the front door of the Hampton Inn Galleria where I am starying. On the first visit the Memphis ribs were good but too crip for my tastes. Second vist I asked the waitress to request less crisp ribs which were more satisfying. The taste the... More

We were staying overnight in Buffalo and stumbled upon this place while searching for somewhere to get a bite to eat. What a great choice! Pleasant service, great food, huge portions. I had the Sassy Barbeque Salad and it was delish!!! Only downside is that I live in Canada and can't get back as often as I'd like :)

Famous Daves BBQ is one of our favourite restaurant when visiting Buffalo. The ribs and chicken are my favourite , and my husbands favourite is the brisket. This meal will fill you up and may even take some home with you.

This was my second visit to Famous Dave's and since I couldn't finish all of the food the first time around I thought I would be smart and just order the burnt ends appetizer with a side Caesar salad and a corn muffin. The food was fabulous! Best corn muffin in a restaurant ever and still too much food to... More

Very good ribs, but the sides were so small. I think could do much better in that department. Overall good food. I would recommend this restaurant.

I really wasn't expecting anything special, to be honest with you, but what I found is better tasting barbeque than some of the other locally owned places around here. I am always kind of hesitant to try chain restaurants--(sit down variety). Me and my partner tried the feast for 2 people(it fed 3 people) which included BBQ ribs...St. Louis Style,... More

We had always eaten here at dinnertime, but decided to try lunch. We had the soup and salad combo ($5.99). Their chicken wild rice soup is an old favorite. It is tasty and full of stuff - a meal instead of a soup. Honey BBQ dressing replaces the ubiquitous honey mustard and is just as good. Lunch portions are smaller... More

You have to try this place if you like ribs. We had the family platter which gave you brisket, ribs, pulled pork, corn, French fries and corn muffins - EVERYTHING was simply delicious and the ribs just fall off the bone with moisture. There is a variety of sauces at the table that you can try or mix and match.... More
