“Always good BBQ.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Easy to find. Got seated right away, that was nice. Server suggested the meal for 2 and it was able to feed my family of 4, with little leftover. Drinks were good. Very fun atmosphere & good BBQ.

“I know where I'm going when in Redding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

We went to Famous Dave's while doing a hospital visit in February. We went through Redding this last Thursday, March 6th and was privileged to go there again. We love everything about it. The décor, the food, the service. We shared the platter for one and it fed both of us! I know where I want to go eat anytime I'm in Redding, CA

“" Famously Predictable BBQ"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Famous Dave's is a chain BBQ restaurant fairly new to the Redding,Ca area. We have had plenty of outstanding BBQ in our travels from rest stop grillers to converted gas stations, but what we like about FD's the food is constantly good, a good atmosphere served up by a friendly attentive staff. When good BBQ is hard to find in our travels we always know we will be satisfied at Famous Dave's. Enjoy!

“Get the brisket”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

I've been to one other Dave's Famous BBQ, and both had pretty slow service. Our waitress was very nice though. It's a little loud in the restaurant because there are so many tables and lots of televisions playing sports games.

I think the best thing there is the brisket, but it wasn't as tender at this Redding location as it was in Gilroy. The Mac and cheese is awesome. It's a spicy adult version. The coleslaw and beans are good. The cornbread muffins are very sweet like a dessert. We enjoyed the BBQ chips they brought after we ordered drinks...we had to ask for a second bowl for our 2 year old because she gobbled them up so quickly.

I enjoy Famous Dave's and would go back again, but not if I were in a hurry.
