Famous Dave's is a friendly and good place for great BBQ and good prices. They have a good menu and a great bread pudding! The service is quick and friendly. The prices are reasonable. The portions are plentiful.

Awesome service, food and sauces! We did the platter for two with 3 people. Added baked potatoes and 4 extra ribs - was more than enough. Wish we had one up north.

This was delivered to our hotel. I would give it four stars for first delivery and three for second delivery. Second time they didn't give us BBQ sauce or ketchup even though I ordered it.

I think Famous Dave's has slipped a bit. Their prices, like everyone else's, it seems, keep climbing, but the food doesn't improve. I enjoy the variety of rib entrees that are available, and I enjoy the different barbecue sauces they make available. Somehow they need...More
