“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Read the reviews before we went. Ordered the platter for 4-6 and there were 5 of us. We took food home with us and I have some big eaters. Drinks were refilled continuously and our Famous Jenn looked after us. Being first timers we were given a bottle of Famous Dave's. everything was really good. Only complaint was there were a group of students that were a little noisy, but that's not their fault. Would recommend this if you're looking for good ribs!

“Great Food, Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We had a great experience at Famous Dave's in Fargo, ND. The service was absolutely perfect and the food was amazing. Price was very reasonable considering the amount of food on the plate and the fact that they make all recipes from scratch. I highly recommend this restaurant!

“Seriously, this BBQ place was average to poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

I came for ribs. It had them and in good proportion. However, aside from the nice decor and atmosphere, the ribs were dry unappetizing meat. I had to pour on the very nice sauce to hide how horrid the meat was. Disappointing :-(

“Good place for fun service and a good amount of quality food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Excellent BBQ ribs, corn, cornbread and catfish. Service has always been good. Have went there on many occassions and only once or twice have I received BBQ ribs that were too fatty.
