In the last 10 or 15 years I have had lunch or dinner here twenty or thirty times, and it has always been the ribs. When you have a meal here you get two side dishes with your entree, and I usually have the beans and cole slaw. They do have an extensive menu, and if you like you can... More

Our server Ty was great. Food was as expected and served very quickly. Had a mudslide that was overpriced for the quality ($7). Only odd thing was no BBQ on the table and when I asked for it, she only brought me one variety (there are about 6). I didn't care because it was the one I wanted, but seemed... More

The ribs were tasty. I had a half rack of baby back and I loved a couple of the available sauces. Broccoli was done well and also ate cole slaw and the complimentary cornbread, Total bill was $19.07. Half rack pricing somewhat high seeing that a full rack is $23..

Barbeque-What's not to love. My wife and I ordered2 different meat dishes; both were tender, juicy, and " fall off the bone" good. Sauces are on the table so you can use as much as you want; although , the way they prepare the food, it is pretty good eating all on its own.

We stopped at Famous Dave's for dinner as we'd been to the chain in other states but don't have on in our home area any longer. The staff here were very friendly and attentive. It was my son's 12th birthday and they brought him a free sundae and sang to him which he thought was fun. We got the Platter... More

Famous Dave's is about as consistent as they get. We've been to their restaurants around the country and we've never been disappointed. Also we do the surveys and get the phenomenal Banana Pudding!!! yummy Portions are good as we usually end up splitting!

Loved the ambiance...the food was fantastic and very reasonably priced....and we did not have to wait long for our food to arrive. Very quick. Would have liked the opportunity to purchase bottles of the various sauces they had out on the tables...they were Awesome!

I normally get a carry out when I visit Famous Dave's however I have dined inside as well. I actually like their side dishes as much as their main dishes. The potato salad and mac and cheese are both excellent. I happen to live next door to the Famous Dave's located in Taylor MI and it is just as easy... More

We had the St. Louis style ribs. The coleslaw and potato salad sides were great! We both loved the corn bread -- very sweet! Good quantities. Prices not too far out for the quality. Lots of locals eating there.

Not impressed. Rib slabs overpriced (as were most of the menu items), over sauced & not very meaty. Better choice around for REAL BBQ.
