Ordering a carry-out, especially for the Monday Burger special, is a good alternative when dining in is not an option. The food is flavorful, filling and reasonably priced. The servers are friendly, helpful and efficient.

Excited to see there was a Famous Dave's down the road from my hotel. The service was great along with the food especially the bread pudding. If you like bread pudding make sure you order it.

Dinner and drinks at the bar! Friendly service, creative and delicious drinks, and tasty food! I got the ribs, they weren't bad, but not my favorite. Their cornbread is awesome. If you like Sangria, order one here- it's very good

Out with some colleagues. All of us choose the double meat choice. I had ribs and chicken, the ribs where ok...the chicken was not my favorite. Friendly waiters. For me this was an average score. No more...no less
