“Great BBQ for a chain restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I really like Famous Dave's. Even though they are now a restaurant chain, they stick to their roots and deliver consistently good food every time we visit. I really like the sauce demonstration and presentation.

“It's alright”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

The food was decent. The waiters needed to slow down and pay more attention to their guests. Everything seemed to be rushed.

“Not a good start”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

There were 5 of us, 2 being your kids. We waited 20 min or so after placing our order. Manager came out with the food, sat down & said ok, how long was the wait. We told him. He said no, that isn't expectably, He picked up the tab. Food was good & we will go back.
