The food is pretty good. I mean, it's not authentic southern BBQ, but it is good BBQ food if you're looking to scratch that itch. I prefer pulled pork and my wife loves the pork nachos. I'd avoid the charred ends at this location because they always seem to be grilled wrong and are near inedible. Sides - slaw, corn,... More

I was very impressed with the Naked Ribs!!! You can tell if someone knows what they are doing by eating their Barbeque without sauce. Dave's did a great job. Now the service, off the chain!!! McKenzie was attentive and so very nice!! I highly recommend Dave's if you are in the area!!!

We went to Famous Dave's while visiting my son. The atmosphere is typical BBQ joint, nothing fancy. The service was excellent and the food was really good and reasonably priced. Everybody enjoyed it very much. The thing that stood out for me was the the sausage. This company is originally from Wisconsin and it shows...BOY the sausage was great. I... More

The wide variety of food and the different sauces that are at your table leave a unlimtied choice in flavors. We always get the trash can lid with the assorted meats and sides. The corn bread is superb. Just like grandma used to make.

The ribs are dry under the sauce, the prices are high, the place is clean, the service is good but you can get better barbecue else where.

We were there for a birthday party with about 15 people . Wonderful service and great food. Big platters of different samples like ribs,corn on the cob. etc. Nice to share with a group of people.

We are Famous Dave's fans as the food is tasty and reliable at a reasonable price. Although this might be a little smaller location than others, we were very pleased with the service. We kept it pretty cheap - I had a Manhandler Sandwich and my wife the Beef Brisket. The combination of tender, tasty brisket with the hot link... More

Great food, we had the feast for two, evrything was great. First sweet tea we had in a week. The host was friendly and made sure we knew about the days specials. We invited the host to eat with us when he could take a break. He did and we had pleasant conversation. Just what our hungry family needed.

Thank Patti L
