We had an evening meal in the restaurant and decide to give the Ribs a go. This was a great choice and the Ribs were some of the best I have ever tasted. The service was good and our waitress could not have been more helpful. The restaurant itself is a little bit of the old west with wooden panelling... More

We ordered lightly here because the prices were a bit high for a BBQ restaurant (though others may not agree.) The food was delicious and we got special attention from the server because it was our first time there.

We had eaten here while traveling last summer, and we couldn't wait to get back and eat there again. The barbecue is excellent, and the staff did a great job. We look forward to stopping there on future trips.

I am from the south and figured that this would be a good taste of down home. Sad to say it was far from the expectation the sign gave us.

This is our second visit to a Famous Dave's, just as good as our previous visit whilst we were in Branson MO. The Original ribs are simply delicious!

We enjoyed our dinner here. We enjoyed the barbecue chips brought the server brought to the table while we were looking at the menu. The meal was tasty and the server was attentive even though he was also taking care of the To-Go orders, too

A chance stop over in town led us to Famous Dave's. Their claim of the best bbq is very well deserved. Everything you could want of your bbq is available. Match this with friendly helpful staff and a selection of sauces for every palette and you will have a great meal.
