Just finished dinner and the food was great again. However..stood at the front desk for quite a while as workers walked by us without a word of greeting..or a word at all. Don't managers teach employees etiquette any more? Lost an excellent rating. Lucky I love the food.

If you've had BBQ at real places like the Rendezvous in Memphis, or Arthur Bryant's in KC, you'll know just how average FDs really is. It's the McDonald's of BBQ. If average (priced like above average) suits you, then you'll love it. Myself, I want better.

I use to like Famous Daves' rib tips, and catfish, but after eating at different ones now, I just believe they have gone down across the board, and those here are no exception. I can say that the tips are tender though. The best thing was the corn muffin and the baby back ribs (though could use a bit more... More

I gave it this because I just couldn't say that it was very good food wise. I downgraded it for the corn...not sweet, and the brisket that is supposed to be their speciality was just too fatty for me. The service was excellent though. My hubby had the feast, and other than the corn, he did enjoy his meal. Might... More

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.

Thank William K
