“Great Happy Hour and Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

My friends and I frequent Famous Dave's on a very regular basis. They have the best Happy Hour in town with all alcoholic beverages 1/2 price and $2 off appetizers. The staff there is always upbeat and friendly. The BBQ is wonderful and you can't go wrong no matter what you order, and I have tried it all!!!

“don't bother to order the ribs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We had an awful order of ribs when we had a carry out. We have eaten at this restaurant numerous times and decided to have a carry out. The ribs were AWFUL, they were old and dried out. Quite a disappointment for the price you pay and for what they are know for. The dine in service is average also. I would think twice before stopping here again.

“Wings special on Wednesday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

You can get regular or boneless wings, buffalo style or other, 24 of them for $10, feeds two, only thing ours were just lukewarm, also got the southern rib lunch and they were dry. Usually this place serves consistent food. It felt like the heater wasn't running inside the place so that could be part of the problem. I'll go back but will specify I want hot fresh food.

“Great food & awesome atomosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

So much more than ribs. Our table of 4 each had something different. The Dave Burger is probably the best burger I have had. My wife had the Salmon and it was very flavorful and cooked perfectly. Of Course 1 person had to had to have the ribs and there was so much depth and flavor to them then any other place in town, Well done Dave! The managment visited our table and made us feel very welcome. This is definately a must visit.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Service is great, they really get to know you and remember your fav drink etc. Blues music always playing sets the mood, along with famous red and white checkered table clothes. Rib tips are my fav, cheap and hit the spot, the grilled pineapple is unique and yummy and the best brocolli I've ever tasted. 2 happy hours a day too, and nice outdoor seating.
