Friendly staff. Wonderful waitress, Mary H. Explained the BBQ sauces and recommended the Mac & Cheese. Yummy! Manager visited table and made us feel welcome. We will come back. Ribs & brisket were delicious!

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.

The food was okay, but nothing special. We ordered the family meal, but there didn't seem to be as much meat on the tray as we have had at other Famous Dave's. On the plus side, get the onion strings as an appetizer. They are really good.

Needed a quick dinner before fireworks on the 4th of July and stopped here. Our favorites were the Burnt Ends (appetizer) and the Beef Brisket. We had the big slab of baby back ribs (because we personally aren't a fan of St. Louis style ribs). The flavor was awesome, but compared to baby back ribs we have had elsewhere, they... More
