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)

I rate Famous Dave's very highly and an extensive BQ menu. Food is great and overall environment is fun & relaxing. The Maple Grove Dave's is top quality and I frequent it as often as I can. Staff is very friendly.

My husband and I went there for lunch on our way home. We got there shortly after 1pm. Waited 10 minutes to be seated on a busy day. However, after ordering our simple meal of a grilled chicken salad and brisket sandwich, we waited over an hour to finally get our food. Our server was great and constantly apologized for... More

Was sent an email to sign up for a chicken tasting as they are starting a chicken dinner Sunday night special and we attended and thought it was quite good for those who do not want the other BBQ items. Has a nice coating and there are a few sauces you can get with that and side items too. Along... More
