“Best Bar-B-Que in Woodbridge!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We frequent this restaurant quite often when my remote co-workers come into town. They request that we ALL go to this restaurant as a team at least once during their visit. They truly have some of the best food in Woodbridge.

“bad food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We got a carry out and the beef brisket was so grissly and greasy that we had to just throw it out. My daughters ribs were horrible to the extreme, again had to throw it all away. My husbands dinner was also greasy and chewy. We have eaten there many times in the past and also had many take outs from Famous Dave's. The food had always been very good in the past. Howwever, this time all of it was terrible and had to be thrown away.

“Great service, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We received wonderful service at this restaurant and since it was our first time visiting a Dave's, a free bottle of BBQ sauce to take home. The food was delicious and hot. Nice selection of beer as well. Will definitely visit again.

“Average food, at best.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We stopped at Famous Dave's for a late night meal after a day at IKEA. The food was average, at best. The server recommended the ribs; however, they were tough and chewy. The chopped pork was a much better selection. The side dish of macaroni and cheese, with corn and jalapenos, was a great taste combination, but as another reviewed stated, the temperature of the food could be warmer. Nothing was served hot....not the ribs, not the chopped pork, not the side dishes, etc. Everything was just barely warm. :-(

On a positive note, the sever was very personable.
