“If you like BBQ'ed food, this is the place to visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

We have visited this resturant several times, and always had a tasty BBQ'ed meal that fills you right up. Service is good and fast, atmosphere enjoyable! It's close to a strip mall area that we visit Gander Mountain, Pet Smart and Dollar Tree, and Hobby Lobby when in the area.

“Nice and quiet”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

I had eaten at a famous daves before back in Texas and i figured i could try it again here in Michigan but much to my suprise food quality and taste has gone way down. Brisket is not that great anymore and neither are their famous ribs. My opinion is that i wont be eating there anymore.

“Great Service, Good Atmosphere for Young Families...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2010

This isn't exactly my favorite restaurant, but my husband really likes it. It's also really good that it's never very busy, and the kids like it there. They have an okay selection for adults and kids.
We have had a few boughts of tummy aches, and rushes to the restroom, after leaving here though. I think the oil they fry the French Fries and Chicken Strips in is different than what we're used to. It's also possible that the food is just too rich compared to our normal fare. Something to think about when eating out though....
