Stopped for lunch on the way home, we were the second group to be seated at 11:03 AM, Sunday 01/08/17. Ordered a Half Slab of St Louis Style Ribs. What I got was a bone from one rack, a bone from another rack, etc... to amount to 6 bones. The ribs were excessively slathered in sauce in order to make... More

Had a family dinner out. Service was fast and friendly and the food was great. Had a feast for 2 and the three of us probably ate about 60% of it.

Looked for great rib place. Stopped in and had dinner a couple of times. Sat at bar and had St. Louis Ribs and they we're GREAT. Haley and Brittany have been working both times and they are great servers. Food was delivered quick and very friendly.

Ordered the brisket dinner. A good sized portion! Ordered potato salad, which was very tasty and the beans, also delicious. The meal came with a corn muffin. I normally don't eat corn muffins (don't care for the texture), but this one was fabulous. The brisket had a delicious flavor, however, was a bit on the salty side. It was very... More

We come to this place a few times a year and have always enjoyed the food. I usually get ribs but this time I decided to try the chicken. It was cooked to perfection-moist and tender and the sauce was awesome.

I don't normally eat fish, but the catfish here was outstanding! Took me back to my childhood, when my Dad, brother and I used to go fishing for catfish in the California Delta. The sauce was excellent, the service from Kelly A. was great, and the hand- washing facility was unique. No boxes to take along; we ate everything! Watch... More

18 people. 15 teens and 3 adults. Superb attention. We were assigned a section with tables for 5, the menu has a lot of options; saldas, sups, chiken, pork, beef... to try many things it's ideal order "Dave's Sampler Platter" or "All-American BBQ Feast®". Once they take your orden, bring you a corn homemade pancake freshly baked, it's dream, a... More

We arrived at 6:30 on a Saturday night and surprisingly the place was pretty empty. We came as a party of 8 but were told it would be a few minutes for them to seat us. So we asked to be seated at 2 tables next to each other, there were lots of open tables. The hostess had to check... More

We tried Famous Dave's restaurant couple times for lunch. We order ribs and the usual sides. The ribs were dry and not memorable. The staff were nice. Overall average at best!!

This the best place for BBQ. The sides are not salty. Relaxed atmosphere! Pictured: rib tips, corn on the cob, Wilber beans (baked beans), corn muffins (can eat those without anything else)
