Yummy!

If you like BBQ then you are gonna like this place. Very casual décor and great service combined with great food. My wife and I usually get the feast for two and I am not sure that we have ever ate everything. There is just too much food. One of the things I like best is the fact that you... read more

I had the rib tips, both as a sandwich and as a dinner the last couple times we've been there and it is quickly turning into my favorite meal there. The rib tips are actually 3/4" or so square chunks of pork that have been carmelized with a little onion and some really great sauce. Sweet and tangy both. Very... More

Decided to try this place for lunch since had never been. The décor is casual and the waitress was great! Love the fact that they serve wine. Were out of the baby back ribs so had the spare ribs. They were ok..little overcooked, but meaty and hit the spot. Corn muffin tasted like Jiffy - too sweet so disappointed. Will... More

We patronize this Famous Dave's a couple times per month. The servers are friendly, the food is good and plentiful. Is it the best Q I've ever had...no, but it's good and consistent and I'll keep going back for more

Nothing fancy but just good eatin'. The ribs come in several styles. I asked for the dry rub but was given the sweet sauce kind. They were good but, what the hey.

Although its a chain, it is a pretty good place to get bar b que in the midwest. I would recommend the ribs over the brisket!

Visited Dave's on a week night with my family. Had a little wait because we had a table of 5. Once we were seated it took quite a while for our waitress to come over and take our drink orders....I think she was new as the table next to us had issues with her as well. By time she showed... More

We don't live in the area, but tried this place on a Saturday night, almost assuming it would be too crowded to get a table. We were pleasantly surprised when we were seated immediately. Our server was great, as was the food. We'd definitely return.
