The food here was really good but our waitress had us waiting forever for everything. I asked for mustard and that even took a long time! Besides that though the food was great and I will be back to give it another try.

Something for everyone in our party and excellent service. Huge portions allowed us to eat our fill and save some leftovers for later.

So expensive. I can't see how families do it. The best thing about the restaurant is the bread pudding for dessert, but mine is better!! The BBQ sauce is okay, but Rib Crib's is better.

3 of 4 in our party had and raved about the ribs. I had the chicken burger and it was excellent. Reasonably priced, good service, happy staff. Would definitely go back.

Went for a Christmas dinner and it was wonderful. We didn't get a separate room, and it was a bit crowded being in with all of the other diners plus it was a bit loud, but the food made up for it! The prices are a bit more than you'd expect to pay for BBQ but it's so worth it...delicious!... More

Wow. I was surprised to learn that Famous Dave's is actually a chain! The food was served quickly and the barbecue ribs and pork have got to be some of the best I have tasted.

there meats are very tender along with many types of sauce... good atmasphere and a little high priced. I do believe that smokehouse is a better bbq place for sure
