“Great Ribs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Huge Portions! Delicious! Service was great and fast! The only thing was I was a bit cold, cold breeze outside could be felt inside...not too nice.

“Good Ribs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

I am not a big fan of BBQ...I know I am strange. LOL But hubby loves the place..I usually get a salad and am happy. It is kind of rustic in decor and can get noisy. But the food is always good.

“One of the better chain BBQ restaurants in the country.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2010

Have eaten at several Famous Dave's places around the country and find this BBQ chain restaurant to be one of the better ones. We were in Fresno for a night and so we tried this one and again wasn't disappointed. The ribs are always very good and so is just about everything on the menu. What I like is the consistency from one Dave's restaurant to another, anywhere in the country.
