We had good food and service. Went for dinner and it was busy, but service was good and wait was not long.

We had a Gift Card for Famous Dave's for a while but we are particular about our BBQ, but finally decided to give it a try. First everyone was very friendly there and we were sat right away on a Friday Night at Dinner hour. Additionally, all the food was delivered quickly and tasted great! We loved the fact that... More

We like the BBQ here. I always get a variety. Love the cornbread muffins and the burnt ends. Always very friendly service. And we love the decorations.

This review is for Famous Dave's Tuesday family specials only! My family of 5 dined on Tuesday night at Famous Dave's. What makes Tuesday night so special? The restaurant, part of the Eagle Blvd sprawl, offers a platter of BBQ meats and sides designed to feed 2 to 3 people for only about $24. What you get: ribs, brisket, chicken,... More

Some people absolutely love this restaurant, we weren't overly impressed. Not the worse meal, however not rushing back to try it again...

So many places in the area are closing, I feel for Famous Dave's trying to compete with all the new places around. On the plus side, it wasn't very busy and the service was good. We hadn't eaten here in a while and found some new items. We tried these rib bite things that were very good and nicely seasoned.... More

We had Famous Dave's cater our wedding and we were not disappointed! We had so many compliments on how amazing the food was and they even boxed up some food to take with us at the end of the night to our hotel. It was incredible, even the leftovers were amazing, we ate them for a few days after the... More

Fun place for dinner with the family. I found the food to be of excellent quality and service was right on par with my expectations. Resturant felt like a BBQ joint. Chose to order my ribs naked. Not a fan of most bbq sauces; believe the meat should stand on its own.

Family always leaves satisfied and portions are large enough for lunch the next day. Best bread pudding in the valley, and I have tried them all.

Great and lots of barbecue. Quick service, decent prices, east access. Trash Can offers more food than you probably can eat on one meal.
